Members of the National Universities Commission (NUC), led by Prof. Saint Gbilekaa, on Thursday, April 8 while on an accreditation visit to three departments of the Federal University, Oye Ekiti (FUOYE), described the school as the fastest growing young university in Nigeria.
The accreditation team was at FUOYE to assess three of the academic programs being offered to its students. They are; Theatre and Media Arts, Sociology and Demography and Social Statistics, English and Literary Studies.
According to Gbilekaa, a Theatre Arts scholar, they had been an impressive improvement in infrastructure development in the university. He lauded the institution for the giant strides in its infrastructural development.
The institution’s Vice-Chancellor Prof. Abayomi Fasina, represented by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Olusola Omotola enjoined the accreditation team to first consider that FUOYE is a young university, at its growing stage, and as such, it has been affected by the scarcity of funds being made available to federal universities.
