VC CALLS FOR UNREMITTING COMMITMENT TOWARDS RAISING THE BAR OF EXCELLENCE IN OPERATIONS
Faculty and Staff of the University have been urged to demonstrate unremitting commitment towards driving continuous improvement in service delivery to raise the bar of excellence in the University’s operation for the actualization of the overarching vision of becoming a leading world-class University.
The Vice-Chancellor, Professor Adeniyi Olayanju gave the charge at the 2017/2018 Academic Session Omega Semester Welcome Assembly for Faculty and Staff held at the University’s International Conference Centre on Thursday 4th January 2018.
While welcoming the undoubtedly excited and enthusiastic academic community into the new year of New Dawn Era, Professor Olayanju said: “We have audacious agenda ahead of us which are achievable as long as our commitment to diligence at work is not compromised.”
He attributed the various achievements in the Alpha Semester to commitment demonstrated byFaculty and Staff which earned the institution its reputable place in the global education circlewith enviable global recognition evident inthe various collaboration requests from, as well as to, related and value-adding industries and institutions.
“We recall in Alpha Semester with excitement that 18 organizations got attracted to LMU pressing to enter into collaboration with us, 5 organizations were visited by LMU on partnership bid, we signed Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with two (2) organizations, while many more are on the request list to partner with the University based on the sheer integrity we have together built over the years.”
Notable among the Alpha Semester achievements was the sub-grant awarded to the University by the Cassava Adding Value for Africa (CAVA II) following satisfactory assessment of the University by the Country Director, CAVA II, Professor Adebayo Kolawole, last October and December. He added that the grant would in no small measure boost the University’s capacity in cassava cultivation, processing and its end products marketing.
The Vice-Chancellor therefore enthused that “if we must remain in the business of raising global leaders and world changers, our commitment to doing things right habitually is not negotiable.”
The Vice-Chancellor continued that as a faith-based University community that derives its strength and inspiration from God through His Servant, Dr. David Oyedpo, Faculty and Staff should not only rely on their competence but also spirituality in meeting the corporate expectations of the University in relevance, impact and reputation via agricultural revolution.
He cited Ephesians 3:20 that ‘He is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us’, while rolling out a 12-agenda project list that would be undertaken before the end of the 2017/2018 Academic Session. These include among othersthe development of a Standard Orchard Farm, strengthening of the existing agro-allied factories - Palm Oil and Cassava Processing Mill, establishment of other agro-allied factories, and increase in production of Fadama Rice. He therefore called on every one “to deploy insatiable passion, push and action towards engendering the best results always” as he concluded.
