Council leadership hands over
The immediate past Pro-Chancellor and Chairman, Governing Council, Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB), Chief Lawrence Osayemi, has handed over to Senator Adeseye Ogunlewe. He expressed confidence that the new Council will take the university to greater heights.
Osayemi, who visited the University with a former member of the Council, Dr. Solomon Oladiti, said his tenure was successful because of the quality of people that made up the council who cooperated to ensure things worked.
?We employed diligence and discretion that were well-grounded in equity, fairness and justice in dealing with the complexity of unions? intrigues and myriads of conflicting interests by staff, students and the community.
This, without doubt, culminated in a large measure in the unprecedented growth, development and peace, in the annals of the University,? he said.
Handing over documents that pertained to council activities, Osayemi urged his successor to surpass his achievements.
Also speaking on the occasion, the Vice-Chancellor, Prof Olusola Oyewole, described Osayemi as a dependable man.
