The Vice Chancellor of Federal University, Oye-Ekiti (FUOYE), Professor Abayomi Fasina, has tasked the president-elect, Senator Bola Tinubu, to prioritise university autonomy upon assumption of duty.

Fasina made the appeal on Tuesday March 21, 2023, during the fourth matriculation ceremony of postgraduate students of the university held in Oye-Ekiti.

The VC pointed out incessant strike actions by the Academic Staff Union of  University (ASUU) as the major challenge facing public universities in Nigeria.

He attributed the challenge to poor funding and lack of infrastructure.

Fasina, therefore, advised the president-elect to appoint technocrats as ministers for agriculture, education and finance in order to ensure the stability and efficiency of his government.

“I want to appeal to our incoming president-elect, Senator Bola Tinubu, to approve university autonomy which will put an end to incessant strikes that always affect the academic calendar of the tertiary institutions.

“FUOYE is moving at a high speed to ensure that our academic calendar is stable and working, but other universities are badly affected as a result of the prolonged strike.

“If the government can employ technocrats who are experts in various fields such as education, economy, agriculture and business, the development of Nigeria will be rapid in all ramifications,” he said.

The VC reiterated the determination of FUOYE to compete favourably with other older universities in postgraduate studies while his administration would not relent in producing the best students in various academic fields.
