fuoye-logo

The Vice Chancellor of the Federal University Oye-Ekiti (FUOYE), Prof. Kayode Soremekun, says that Nigerian universities are “over-unionised” and that it is distracting university administrations from discharging their duties adequately.

The VC, who identified poor funding as the cause of what he describes as “militant unionism” in Nigerian university campuses, said that it has been difficult for the country to meet up with the huge demands of university staff because the income being generated is a mismatch with the expenditure.

Soremekun made the remarks on Monday while addressing newsmen during the 2016/2017 and 2017/2018 Combined Convocation Ceremony of the institution, which held at the VC’s Conference Hall.

The VC said: “Nigerian universities are over-unionised and this is distracting the administrations of the institutions. This is because Nigeria is poor and our income is struggling to meet up with huge expenditure. There is a mismatch between income and expenditure. The macro environment needs to change to favour the system and only then will militant unionism… end.”

Speaking about the Convocation ceremony, the VC said FUOYE is graduating a total of 1000 students from five faculties of Agriculture, Arts, Engineering, Science and Social Sciences.”

On the graduating students academic performance, he added that: “…a total of 35 First Class degrees in both sessions, 366 Second Class Upper, 472 Second Class lower, 119 in Third Class degrees and 8 in Pass.

The VC also spoke about his achievements in the past three years, citing the completion of over 40 infrastructural projects in the twin campuses of Oye and Ikole of the school; increasing academic programmes from 29 to 60 with full NUC accreditation; increasing number if students from 512 to 17,000 and building a conducive learning environment as milestones.
