Commending the unions and the general staff of the institution, Prof. Egbewole said “I have said it over and over that our unions are responsible unionists and our primary concern is our students and that is why it was possible for us to have our examination process without hiccups.

“They obeyed and I want to say with all sense of responsibility that the unions obeyed their leaders at the national level and went on with the strike.

” But because of our understanding, the unions that were not on strike assisted in creating a seamless examination process,” he explained.

The Vice-Chancellor reiterated the commitment to create enabling environment for the university to achieve its ‘Smart Agenda’.

“The SMART university mantra entails that my administration, with your support, will be purposefully geared towards achieving sustainable development, monumental achievements, adaptive capacity, rapid response to change and team building.”

” We are also hopeful that we will ensure that the thrive we are presently having is not in any way deminished and that is why I can confidently tell you that the current semester examination is currently going to an end without any form of disruption in our academic calendar and we intend to continue to maintain that our position by God’s Grace,” he added.

Highlighting the achievements recorded in the university, he said “a number of infrastructural additions had come to our University. We completed the Chemical Engineering, we have also added value by creating the car park that is befitting of the structure.

On the global plain, Prof. Egbewole said for the university to be a global player, “we need to do things differently and that is why I believe that we are positioning ourselves as a University to the point that we should be self sustaining because that is the essence of an academic, you need to think outside the box, without the box, that is the only way we will end up becoming global players.”
