The Provost, Adeyemi College of Education (ACE) Ondo, Prof Olukoya Ogen, has given reasons why peace has continued to prevail in the institution.
According to him, there is mutual relationship among the management, workers and students – a situation he said was not the case in many tertiary institutions.
He said his management is fully committed to the welfare of all students in the College.
Ogen, who spoke during the inauguration of the 2016/2017 Students’ Union (SU) Central Executive Council, pledged management’s commitment in operating an open door policy.
“We will carry your executive along on any issues. We want your ideas, let us rub minds together,” said Ogen, while addressing the students’ body.
Ogen, who described the occasion as significant, also praised the SU for guiding their colleagues to achieve smooth transition from one executive to another.
He hailed the outgoing SU President, Richard Ogunrotifa for outstanding performance during his tenure. Ogen said management had recommended Ogunrotifa for a special commendation for creating a bond with the legislature, executive and Judiciary arms of the SU, and for his boldness in presenting a statement of account after his tenure.
Ogen urged the new president, Omosebi Oluwatobilola, to emulate his predecessor’s values, while also adopting Dr. Folorunso Balogun who is the Dean, School of Science as his father throughout his tenure.
The Dean, Students Affairs, Mr. Olaniyi Olaluwoye, recalled that the second SU e-voting election took place on August 23, adding that it was very peaceful.
He appealed to the newly elected SU to see their offices as a call to service, and not as an opportunity to enrich themselves.
The Chairman, Senior Staff Union of College of Education in Nigeria, Mr. Jimoh Liasu and the Chairman, Non Academic Staff Union, Henry Akingbola also were also in attendance.
The high point of the event was the presentation by Ogen of a certificate and a new SU bus to the outgoing executives.
