Monarchs in Ikale land have assured the Vice-Chancellor of Olusegun Agagu University of Science and Technology (OAUSTECH), Okitipupa, Prof. Temi Emmanuel Ologunorisa of their unflinching cooperation and support.

The traditional rulers of Igodan Lisa, Igbodigo and Ayeka gave the assurances when the Vice-Chancellor paid them courtesy visits as part of his familiarization with the host communities.

Prof. Ologunorisa assumed duty on 23 February, 2022 during the eight-month industrial action embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

Speaking, the Regent of Ayeka Kingdom, Princess (Barrister) Olayemi Bajowa, said she would cooperate and assist the Vice-Chancellor in any possible way as her late father stood by Ologunorisa’s predecessors.

She noted that the impact of the institution was being felt in her domains as the gully erosion tearing apart her community had been addressed as a result of having the institution’s School of Engineering and Engineering Technology in her domain.

The Regent stated that the fame of Prof. Ologunorisa had preceded him with the introduction of the School of Management Sciences and working hard to start Bachelor of Science in Applied Geology and Bachelor of Nursing Science within a short time.

Also, the Obagberume of Igbodigo, Oba John Ebunola Aiyeku, Akinyomi I, offered his royal blessings to the VC and OAUSTECH, saying he was happy with the recent developments in the institution since Ologunorisa came on board.

The Obagberume in council pleaded that the throne should be carried along in activities of the institution as one of the landlords, adding that his subjects should be considered whenever there are opportunities for employment so as to benefit as a major hosting community.

Earlier, the newly installed Olu of Igodan Lisa, Oba Adeduwo Olusegun called for a closer relationship between the institution and his community, saying “we are partners in progress”.

The Olu in council had unanimously requested for more employment opportunities at the senior level for indigenes of the community as well as support for the local security outfit, ensuring security of lives and property of the students residing in Igodan Lisa.

The monarch pleaded with Prof. Ologunorisa to advise students residing in Igodan Lisa to cooperate with the host community to curb the menace of burglary, theft and sexual harassment.

In his response, Prof. Ologunorisa sought the blessings and cooperation of the royal fathers for his administration and the institution.

He promised to present the demands to the University Governing Council for consideration
