Unilorin, most sought varsity in Nigeria – VC reasons for returning to ASUU 

By Opeyemi Daniel, Aminat Ahmed

Vice Chancellor, University of Ilorin, Professor Sulyman Abdulkareem Age said the institution is the most sought after in the whole of Nigeria.

Age, while briefing the press on the achievement of the school in the last one year, said the varsity has always been unstoppable over the years, pointing out that her uninterrupted academic calendar for good nineteen years earned her the fame of the most sought after institution in the country.

He appreciated efforts of all staff of the varsity, both academic and non-academic, saying it is through their dedication and commitment they were able to achieve such huge success "The giant stride should be credited to the university community. The community that is tightly bound for common purpose.

"I pledged to turn the school into  academic place of research and learning, making it the best in Nigeria, Africa and one of the best in the world" he said.
The don also said they will not drop from this standard rather, be proactive and keep on working hard.

In the same vein, the VC also reacted to the moves that led to the University joining the national body of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, (ASUU).
National Moonlight reports that the University had enjoyed smooth academic calendar for close to two decades by shunning the ASUU National leadership.
However,  peace pact was recently signed by aggrieved groups and the ‘better by far’ varsity  finally returned to the association.

According to the VC, “permit me to list, as part of our achievements, the support for the efforts at resolving the prolonged feud within the University’s chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), which had subsequently normalised or reconciled our relationship with the mainstream national body of the Union.

“There is no doubt that the two-decade long polarisation of the Union in the University had brought a lot of discomforts to a majority within the community. While the feud lasted, many of us admittedly bore painfully some deprivations simply because the University willingly remained independent of the main body of ASUU".

He said since their local ASUU has joined the mainstream at the national level, people would be apprehensive about the sustainability of the stability they have enjoyed.

He allayed the fear disclosing that they now have " a unanimously elected and inclusive local ASUU leadership and executives that are deeply embedded with the Unilorin spirit of selflessness; that believe in constructive struggle rather than destructive agitation; that share the University aspiration; that valorise the glory that the University had accumulatively gained over some years; and that will not want such glory to carelessly fritter away" he said
