The Vice-Chancellor, Professor Olayemi Akinwumi has inaugurated about 50 newly appointed officers as Deans, Directors, Heads of Departments, Coordinators and Desk Officers.


Speaking during the inauguration which took place on Monday, 19th April, 2021 at the Council Chamber, Adankolo Campus, the Vice-Chancellor charged the new appointees to leverage on their network of contacts to find ways of securing assistance for the University in addressing its infrastructure deficit, and take advantage of the relationships they had built over the years with older universities in Nigeria by studying their success stories, replicate their models where necessary and adopt best practices in the University System, in their new areas of assignment.


“The assignment before us is enormous and there is not much time, but one thing is sure: with team work and dedication, no task is too great, no accomplishment is too grand and no dream is too far-fetched,” the Vice-Chancellor remarked.


Professor Akinwumi stated that the appointments were made after a careful selection process and in line with his Vision Plan which he unveiled during his inauguration as the 3rd Vice-Chancellor of the University on 15th February, 2021, adding that the appointments were based strictly on merit and propelled by his desire to run an all-inclusive administration by bringing everyone on board in order to unify the community to work together in achieving the common goal.


The Vice-Chancellor, who read out the key mandates of the various positions, called for their support in building not just a University that ranks highly amongst the top ten universities in Africa, but one that is global and can compete favourably on the world stage.


While thanking them for the willingness to serve and contribute their wealth of experience towards the development of the young University, the Vice-Chancellor urged them to align their activities and programmes with the Vision and Mission of the University, as well as the developmental agenda and institutional reforms of his administration. He assured them that the University Management was willing to support their initiatives and programmes despite the limited resources available.


In their separate remarks, the Dean, School of Postgraduate Studies, Professor Gbenga Ibileye and the Head, Department of Computer Science, Professor Francisca O. Onaolapo who was earlier appointed as Director, Quality Assurance, thanked the Vice-Chancellor for finding them worthy of the new appointments.
