For the 3rd Vice-Chancellor of Federal University Lokoja, Professor Olayemi Akinwumi, it was a dream come through that under his watch and within the first 3 months of his sojourn and purposeful leadership in FUL, some of his action plan and vision for the University were already seeing the light of the day.

At various fora, the Vice-Chancellor has always restated that it was his strong desire and commitment that ICT drives all aspects of the University’s operations. Professor Akinwumi maintained that under his administration, the University would embrace Information and Communication Technology and things would be done differently.

True to his word, the Senate of Federal University Lokoja has fully embraced a paperless Senate. It is noteworthy that beginning from the next Senate meeting, FUL will run a paperless Senate where correspondences and memoranda will no longer be carried about in heavy files.

During the demonstration and training on e-Senate held on Tuesday, May 25, 2021 at the Senate Chamber, Adankolo Campus, the Director of ICT, Professor Sunday Eric Adewumi addressed the Senators on the need for implementing the e-Senate platform that would move the University forward.

At the training session which was declared open by the Vice-Chancellor, the  ICT Director, equally highlighted the various advantages of the e-Senate platform, underscoring the importance of embracing a digitalized approach of running a 21st Century Senate in any University. In his presentation, Professor Adewumi also briefed Senate on other ICT innovations that would soon be unveiled for the University.

Members of Senate were taken through the various stages on how to use the new platform during a technical session that was coordinated by Mr. Blessing Oladele, a Principal Programmer from the Directorate of ICT in the University.

While thanking the Director of ICT and his Team for the innovation and commitment to his vision, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Olayemi Akinwumi stated that the University would soon start operating an e-memo system in his bid to build a world-class University that is ICT-driven, adding that “where there is a will, nothing shall be impossible”.
