The Founder and Pro-chancellor of Achievers University Owo, Dr Bode Ayorinde has reiterated his commitment to the 12 point agenda put in place by the institution to achieve its developmental goals in 2022.
Ayorinde made the commitment at the 2021 start of the year prayer session to usher in the new year.
He said the prayer sessions at the start and end of the year, have become a tradition in the institution, adding that under no condition should a staff be found wanting from such important gathering.
The legal practitioner who acknowledged the challenges in the last 13 years of the institution, however expressed hope that the developmental goals would be achieved by December 2022.
The developmental goals include the parameter fencing of the school, which had began; ensuring prompt payment of salaries and accreditation of all the courses in the institution.
Others are ensuring the full movement of the students from the mini campus to the permanent site; building of 100 staff quarters (24 had already be built and allocated to staff) and the building of a befitting Sports complex, that would host private universities games.
Part of the agenda he mentioned would be to ensure that all the departments in school got buildings demarcating them from each other. He added that the complex housing the departments of mass communication and computer science would be ready in the next three months.
Also in the pipeline is the establishment of a comprehensive water scheme for the campus; production of Achievers Bread; establishment of a water factory and building of a comprehensive health centre.
He used the occasion to announce the approval of the National Health Insurance Scheme for the school’s health centre. The implication is that students would now have access to universal health coverage.
Aggressive beautification of the campus with flowers and tarring of internal roads in the school, are other items on the 12 point agenda.
Ayorinde sought the cooperation of staff in order to achieve the 12 point goals. He promised to continue to prioritise their welfare.
Earlier, the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Samuel Aje in his remarks reminded the staff to be alive to their responsibilities and know that covid19 is still very much with us. He urged them to wear their facemasks, use hand sanitizers regularly and adhere to all safety protocols put in place by health practitioners.
The Registrar, Revd Bayode Oladimeji in his homily, harped on the need for staff to count their blessings for surviving the year 2020. He expressed hope that the new year would bring abundant blessings to the staff and the institution.
