This is not to flatter or praise, but to appreciate the reality of good transformation and development in all the faculties in the Federal University Oye-Ekiti (FUOYE) particularly in the Faculty of Science.

With his initiative and unflinching administrative style, one can say without doubt that our vice chancellor, Prof Kayode Soremekun, is a real problem solver.

We used to face problems of congestion of students in lecture rooms during lectures and examination periods, but now it is no more with his initiative of new spacious and ventilated lecture rooms in some faculties, particularly three of them in the sciences.

FUOYE is taking shape as a real university now. Prof Soremekun has transformed the university from grass to grace, from four faculties to ten.

Faculty of Pharmacy is 100 percent completed, Management Science and Basic Medical Science are about to be completed while the University Library is attracting students and staff.

However, attention should be paid to the three in one Science Laboratory in Oye campus. It has been 100 percent complete since roughly six months ago but needs furniture. The use of these big laboratories will ease the problem of congestion of students during the practical sessions. The small laboratories we are using now are small for the large number of students.

fuoyeThe Vice-Chancellor, Federal University, Oye Ekiti, Prof. Kayode Soremekun, said on Saturday that the institution was planning to change into a dual-mode to combine existing conventional academic programmes with Distance Learning Programme.

Soremekun said he had held several meetings with the Commonwealth of Learning in Vancouver, Canada, with a view to achieving the feat.

He said, “I have visited COL and held a series of meetings with the organisation. The matters discussed were focused on developing FUOYE with regards to quality assurance, employability and the strategy to transit FUOYE into a dual-mode university.

According to him, running a distance learning programme would expand the scope of scholarship around the globe through access to university education and exchange programme among commonwealth universities.

COL is an intergovernmental organisation established by the Commonwealth Heads of Government in 1988 for enhancing the quality of educational programmes of Commonwealth nations and to encourage the development and sharing of open learning and distance education knowledge and resources.
