The Vice Chancellor Federal University Oye-Ekiti, Professor Ka y o d e Soremekun, has disclosed the determination of his administration to expand the course content of the university through the establishment of new faculties. Professor Soremekun made the disclosure while addressing the press shortly after the sixth matriculation of the university. The Don hinted that the institution's Senate, in its last meeting, had given approval for the commencement of the faculties of Pharmacy and Basic Medical Sciences. In addition to these, the Vice Chancellor also said that plans were underway to establish the Faculty of Law as well as that of Environmental Sciences/ Design.

He further revealed that the funds for the commencement of the Faculty of Pharmacy were already in place and with the approval of the curriculum by the institution's Senate, the university would only get into action to engage a competent and credible contractor to commence and ensure speedy completion of the project as it is expected to take off next academic session, all things being equal.

It should be recalled that at the inception of the Professor Soremekun-led administration, a committee was inaugurated to fine-tune modalities for the commencement of the Faculty of Pharmacy, the result of which leads to this imminent take-off.

According to the Vice-Chancellor, efforts were also being intensified to equip all the existing (seven) faculties for maximum productivity. He maintained that his administration was not unmindful of challenges faced by both staff and students in view of the recent unprecedented increase in the population of students admitted for the 2016/2017 session. He therefore

averred that no stone would be left unturned in ensuring that the challenges were tackled. However, in order to achieve this dream, the Vice Chancellor would require the cooperation of both staff and students as well as other major stakeholders.

He appreciated all who have contributed in various ways to the success so far recorded by the administration, and added that his administration would add to the rapid growth and transformation of the institution such that it would compete favourably with the best ranked universities globally.

An elated Professor Soremekun disclosed that FUOYE, in the 2017 National Universities Commissions ranking, came 14th among all universities in the country and 1st among its other eleven contemporaries. He said this is a clear sign that the university is headed for greatness.
