The Federal University Oye-Ekiti (FUOYE) has recorded another academic achievement as it set to graduate not less than 1,714 from seven faculties for the recently concluded 2019/2020 academic session following prompt approval of results by the University Senate.
The Senate had, at its 44th meeting on September 29, 2021, approved the results of the 2019/2020 graduating students on the directive of the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Abayomi Fasina.
This was contained in a statement co-signed by the university’s Public Relations Officer, Foluso Ogunmodede, and the Special Adviser on Media Matters to the VC, Wole Balogun.
The statement said the achievement ‘’became another landmark achievement of the administration of the current Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Abayomi Sunday Fasina, among other admirable breakthroughs recorded since his inauguration on February 11, 2021’’, adding that, ‘’the University Senate’s prompt approval of the 2019/2020 graduating students’ results was an unprecedented breakthrough for the great citadel of learning as earlier, similar efforts had experienced unnecessary delay owing largely to certain administrative bottlenecks which have now been removed by purposeful leadership of Prof. Fasina’’.
It stated that the delay had been affecting students’ mobilization for the compulsory National Youths Service Corps (NYSC).
According to the statement, students in the First Class category were 62, among whom was the immediate past Student Union President of the institution, Comrade Alabi Johnson of the Faculty of Engineering. The Second Class Upper (2.1) category had 603, while those in the Second Class Lower (2.2) category were 821.
