The vice chancellor of the Federal University Oye-Ekiti, Professor Kayode Soremekun, has called on the citizens of Oye community to assist the university even as they expect benefits from the institution. Professor Soremekun was responding to speeches during a reception organized in his honour during the weekend at the Oye Civic Center.

According to the vice chancellor, in as much as the university is willing to consider the host community in admissions, employment opportunities and contract award, the citizens should equally strive to assist the young institution in surmounting its ever-increasing challenges so it can grow to give back to the host community.

The vice chancellor applauded the contributions of the Oye community to the university and said that his administration will ensure that Oye citizens enjoy all accruable benefits, hinting that the contract for the renovation of the block for the new faculty of Education was awarded to an Oye indigene.

He expressed appreciation for the reception saying, “I am overwhelmed by what I saw here today, this event is beyond my imagination, I thank you so very much.” He maintained that his administration is favorably disposed toward any community that will help to move FUOYE forward, and will, therefore, welcome any advice or contributions to that effect.

Speaking, the paramount ruler of Oye kingdom, the Oloye of Oye, Sir Michael Oluwole Ademolaju, said the occasion was a special one. “Today’s event is unique in that, for the first time since the establishment of the university, we are welcoming as the vice chancellor of FUOYE a man of our descent, a Yoruba man who understands our cultural particularities,” he said.

The Monarch commended Professor Soremekun for starting well, “Your approach to the administration of the university since your arrival so far reveal that you are actually conscious of the need for the uprightness and openness in serving one’s people; you have pursued the introduction of new faculties and departments with utmost sincerity of purpose.”

The traditional ruler climaxed his remarks by declaring Professor Soremekun a bona fide citizen of Oye and christening him “OMODELE” of Oye Kingdom, in fulfillment of his earlier promise of giving the vice chancellor the Oye city key. Oba Ademulaju prayed that Professor Soremekun’s name be written in an indelible mark in the history of the university at its developmental stage.

President of Oye Progressive Union (OPU), Hon. Barr. Akinbowale Omole had informed the vice chancellor that Oye people received the news of his appointment with joy in the hope that it would further strengthen the relationship between the university and her host community.

The OPU president applauded Professor Soremekun for starting on the right footing adding, “We want to note that you are taking off well, particularly in the areas of new faculties and departments which is the desired expansion. It is our wish that in no distant time the university will be able to compete with other top universities in the country and abroad.”

Barrister Omole also hinted that the occasion was not for any other purpose than to welcome the vice chancellor and create an opportunity for interaction between him and the community in order to foster good and lasting relationship now and beyond his tenure.

The vice chancellor was accompanied to the event by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Professor Raphael Ajayi, the Head of Ikole campus, Professor Olugbenga Amu, management and other staff.
