In an unscheduled visit, the Vice Chancellor, Professor Isaac Asuzu, surprised the Ikole Campus with his presence when he paid them a low-key inspection visit. The visit was intended to check the progress of work at the new Faculty of Engineering Building site in preparation for the accreditation exercise.

He was conducted round the construction site by the Dean, Faculty of Engineering and Director of Information and Communication Technology, ICT, Professor Christian Bolu, Professor Olugbenga Amu, and some senior members of the academic staff of the faculty. Professor Bolu took the Vice Chancellor through the offices and rooms in each of the buildings. He said the first block would be shared between the Department of Electrical/Electronic Engineering and Department of Computer Engineering. The second block would be shared between the Department of Civil Engineering and the Department of Agricultural/Bio-Resources Engineering. Further, the third block will be shared between the Departments of Mechanical/Mechatronics Engineering and Metallurgical/Material Engineering.

 Professor Bolu also seized opportunity of the Vice Chancellor’s visit used to make requisition for necessary tools and equipment required by the faculty for smooth academic work. The Vice Chancellor, while responding, advised that a committee be set up to look into the needs, challenges and preparations of the faculty in view of the accreditation exercise. At the end of the tour, Prof. Asuzu directed that stakeholders of the faculty be informed in time about the office allocations, so that issues, difficulties and interests concerning the allocation could be discussed and resolved before residence is commenced. Finally, the Vice Chancellor expressed satisfaction with the contractor handling the project and thanked the Federal Government for supporting the university through the construction of state-of- the art buildings both in Oye and Ikole campuses.

The Vice Chancellor’s visit coincided with faculty of engineering students’ elections. The students were enthusiastically gathered in one of their halls waiting for the outcome of their elections. The VC while addressing them, advised that they eschew violence  and not allow themselves to be used as political weapons. He also encouraged them to use the university recognized cafeteria “Food Affairs” instead of patronizing unwholesome food vendors.

 Earlier the students, full of excitement and capitalizing on the golden opportunity of the visit, had reeled out their needs and challenges. On his part, the Vice Chancellor assured them of the university’s concern for their welfare, encouraging them to always embrace dialogue in seeking redress for any challenges rather than any recourse to rampaging and rioting.
