He made this known to Members of Senate during its tenth sitting and shortly after inspecting facilities at the university, ahead of the take off of the JUPEB proramme.
Professor Ajeyalemi commended the university for having what he described as the largest concentration of Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFUND) projects and added that it clearly demonstrates the ability of the institution to interact and relate well with Tetfund, a feat he said was not an easy task.
Amazed with the substantial improvement recorded since his last visit, the JUPEB boss lauded past and present Administrations for working tirelessly to uplift the institution to its present level and stated that most older universities do not have the state of the art laboratories that he saw during the resource verification exercise.
He congratulated the Vice-Chancellor for interest shown and said that the programme would increase the internally generated revenue (IGR) base of the university.
While urging the Administration to market the programme, he emphasized that the teaching must be intensive to cover the syllabus and to meet up with the standards. He also stressed that only dedicated teachers should be used to teach the nineteen subjects, three of which the candidates must offer.
He appreciated the warm hospitality accorded them and looked forward to the commencement of the programme at the institution.
The Vice-Chancellor had earlier informed members of senate that he had received members of the board on a resource verification exercise and that they would come to the floor of the house to brief members on their findings at the end of their tour.
In her speech, the Acting Registrar, Mrs Hope Kue-Ikoro thanked the board for their support and for acknowledging that the university has what it takes for the programme to commence and also to the Vice-Chancellor for throwing his weight behind the idea by the Director of School of Basic Studies.
