Ogunduyile, explained that the school fee levied on the students is appropriate as it was agreed upon by the management and students that the payment of the increment in the school fee would start from 100 level students without affecting 200 level upward when the increment started.

He enumerated hostel accommodation, lecture theatre among other facilities as challenges facing the OSUSTECH and therefore appealed to the committee and the state government to intervene.

Ogunduyile noted that the management of the institution is taking a bold step in collaborating with Institution of Marine in foreign country to enhance students success in marine course.
