    A researcher from Leuphana University, Germany, Dr. Ilsemargret Luttmann has lauded what she described as proactive, pragmatic leadership and infrastructural development being experienced in Federal University Oye Ekiti (FUOYE), Ekiti State, Nigeria under the hardworking Vice-Chancellor, Professor Abayomi Sunday Fasina, describing it as uncommon feats in less than three years in office.
    According to Dr. Luttmann, Professor Abayomi Sunday Fasina deserved an applause especially for turning the face of the university through his transformative leadership in less than three years in office, saying only a First-Class intellect Vice-Chancellor in the garb of Professor Fasina was capable of achieving huge infrastructural revolution within the space of three years.

    Dr. Luttmann said this during a courtesy visit to the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Abayomi Sunday Fasina in office on 20th May, 2024 at the Vice-Chancellor’s Office.

    She, however, said she paid the courtesy visit to the Vice-Chancellor because of what she had read about him even though she was in Nigeria to visit a colleague, Dr. Paul Onanuga, a fellow researcher at Leuphana University in Germany, who also doubles as a senior lecturer in the Department of English and Literary Studies, Federal University Oye-Ekiti.

    With what Dr. Luttmann saw in FUOYE and Professor Fasinas transformative leadership, she said she was happy to have come for interchange information and interaction with the students of the university. This, Dr. Luttmann said she was very elated about it.

    She, however, commended the Vice-Chancellor for indeed raising the bar of development in terms of infrastructure in FUOYE, saying she looked forward to meaningful collaborations that would continue to put FUOYE in the global limelight.

    Dr. Luttmann said: We came to project a film to the students that would be shown in Germany at the film festival and my experience with them was a beautiful one even as I was overwhelmed by how they came out in their numbers for the film.

    “One thing that I love about FUOYE is the serenity and conduciveness of its environment. I also want to express my appreciation to my colleague, Dr. Paul Onanuga for the opportunity given to me. I have over the years known Dr. Paul to be well-grounded and dependable person I can vouch for or recommend anytime, anyway.

    Earlier, the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Abayomi Sunday Fasina, thanked the Visitor and reeled out some of the universitys achievements under his administration in the past few years which had made FUOYE dusted some first-generation universities in terms of excellence, research and becoming fourth most sought after university in Nigeria with its increased students population to over 50, 000, 30 conducive classrooms built through the universitys internally generated revenue(IGR), a Freedom Park where students relax and ease their stress, establishment of the school of Part-Time Studies in Ayegbaju-Ekiti, Top-up Programme incorporating over 11 Polytechnics in Nigeria, Establishment of the College of Medicine, amongst many others

    Also, the Vice-Chancellor went further to state that FUOYE had been ranked number 4 most subscribed university of 274 universities because of its stable academic calendar that had been followed religiously, serene environment, quality staff members, Topnotch and superb leadership style amongst, many others.

    Speaking with FUOYE NEWS, Dr. Paul Onanuga said that the aim of Dr. IIsemargrets visit was for the academic exchange of knowledge and expertise.

    He said: “Her visit is an academic knowledge-exchange. We met as researchers and felt that there were valuable interactions and engagement that could come out of the relationship so she came around to have an interaction with our students and see what collaborations can come up later.”
