My desire as Chairperson Academic Staff Union of Universities, Federal University Oye-Ekiti (ASUU-FUOYE) branch

 

The general well-being of the University community is my desire as Chairperson Academic Staff Union of Universities, Federal University Oye-Ekiti (ASUU-FUOYE) branch. It is my wish that the University move forward. It is my wish that all of us are brought to a level of consciousness and knowledge to know and do what is right at all times. It is my wish that all of us at FUOYE will do what is right according to law and right conscience; it is my wish that we will know how to exercise our right without fear or favour. It is my desire to see a University where there is equal opportunity for all and a University where no man is oppressed. Conclusively, I wish that FUOYE will operate according to the letters of the University’s regulations and the law.

Dr. Omonijo’s leadership is ably supported by Dr. Mbachaga Desen Jonathan as General Secretary, Dr Oyelaran Olatunde Ajani as welfare Secretary as well as Olaniyan Olayayo Moses, Treasurer (for now).
