The Vice Chancellor of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko, Prof. Olugbenga Ige, has urged all staff of the Institution to be more committed, dutiful, focused and steadfast in order for the expectations for the new year to come to fulfillment.
Prof. Ige, who made the call at a Prayer Programme for the new year 2022, also assured the staff of making their welfare a priority.
The VC said, “Let me assure you, our dear staff, that we will continue do our best to make your welfare a priority as possible as we can. I, therefore, call on you all to remain committed, steadfast, focused and dutiful such that our expectations for the New Year and beyond would come to fruition.”
While congratulating the staff on the triumph over the challenging year 2021 and thanking God for counting them worthy to witness the year 2022, the VC noted, “No doubt, the outgone year was not without its numerous challenges, which I’m sure you all know, especially in terms of payment of salaries; research efforts; infrastructure development and community services.
“Notwithstanding, the 2021 experiences have helped us to restyle our mode of operations in such a way that will enable us to intensify on some of our strategies, ideas and concepts that are needed in the growth and development of our University.”
He stressed the need for all hands to be on deck to take the University to greater heights, saying, “As I have said at different fora, I want you to know that we are just starting the project of building the AAUA of our dream. As a university and a new administration, we, once again, invite you all to join the endeavour of repositioning our university, while we put our eyes on the future which begins now.”
