Chairman of the House Committee on Tertiary institutions, Hon. Felemu Gud Bankole and other members of the committee posited that some grey areas must be addressed in order to emplace the process in a better stead.
While briefing members of the House committee on latest development in the institution, the Acting Rector, Mr Adebola Ogundahunsi pledged that no effort will be spared towards repositioning the school for better performance.
He noted that efforts are on to facilitate the promotion of staff which he said would cut across board.
On payment of salary, the acting Rector called for the assistance of government towards alleviating the plight of workers.
While being optimistic that all courses in the school would soon be accredited, Ogundahunsi solicited the support of all unions in the school as well as the lawmakers.
