The Federal University Oye-Ekiti (FUOYE), has proposed the sum of N1 billion for the provision of security and the fencing of the two campuses of the university at Oye-Ekiti and Ikole-Ekiti.
Prof. Kayode Soremekun, Vice Chancellor of the university, in a pre-convocation briefing which was held on the main campus at Oye-Ekiti on Monday, stated that the arrangement was targeted at securing the lives of the students and staff of the university community, as well as property belonging to the institution.
“We are very concerned about the security of our staff and students. A billion naira has been estimated to fence the Oye and Ikole campuses. We are experiencing occasional cases of encroachment on our lands and to prevent this, we have to fence our campus.
“Our dream is to transform FUOYE into a world class university, producing graduates with enviable academic credentials, producing graduates with enviable academic credentials, who can hold their own anywhere they find themselves across the globe.
“We aspire to be competitive in all metrics nationally and globally and ultimately produce sound graduates, majority of who will be wealth creators and employers of labour and not only mere job seekers,” the VC stated.
Prof. Soremekun disclosed that about 1,000 graduating students would be awarded first degrees, with 35 of them bagging first class.
