Code of Conduct Bureau Holds Public Enlightenment Workshop for OAU Staff


In order not to run foul of the laws setting up the Code of Conduct Bureau, the management of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, has organised a two-day workshop on Public Enlightenment on Assets Declaration and Code of Conduct for Public Officers.


In their separate speeches at the occasion, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Eyitope Ogunbodede and the Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Administration, Professor Chris Ajila, who coordinated the workshop, remarked that participants were drawn across the Faculties, Departments and units of the University in two tranches over the two days so as not to affect the smooth running of the university’s operations.


They implored participants to cooperate and listen well to the resource persons from the Code of Conduct Bureau, reminding the participants also that are at liberty to ask questions at the end of the programme.


The Director, Code of Conduct Bureau, Prince Olufadejin Adeniyi explained that the Code of Conduct for Public Officers in Nigeria became necessary particularly when viewed against the backdrop of large scale fraud and corruption which is prevalent in the Public Service and the damage caused by this evil to the nation’s external and corporate image.


He stated that the workshop is crucial as it is sensitize public officers to become accountable and to adopt transparent and best practices in their work.  He further noted that the Part 1 of the fifth (5th) schedule of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 as amended, lists the Code of Conduct for Public Officers, warning that there is great danger in filling the assets declaration form for public officers wrongly.

OAU to Partner ACE on Staff Accommodation



In order to ease the challenges of shortage of staff accommodation on the campus of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, the authorities of the institution are set to partner with Academia City Estate (ACE), a team of estate developers.

News of this partnership came to the fore when the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Administration) Professor Chris Ajila, received the team on behalf of the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Eyitope Ogunbodede. He informed the visitors that the University management has a committee that is looking into the accommodation issue with a view to getting an expanse of land that would be suitable for staff as housing estate.

Professor Ajila also stated that the University land statutorily belongs to the Federal Government and anything to be done on it should be for commonwealth and not to cater for the personal interest of any individual or a group of persons, without excluding staff, whether serving or retired.

He used the occasion to also call on wealthy individuals, corporate organisations and socio-cultural clubs or society to come and partner with the university by building hostels to accommodate the increasingly growing population of the students.

Earlier, the leader of the visiting team and Laroka of Wanikin, Oba Kole Ojutalayo, explained their mission stating that they came as partners in progress to adequately respond to the yearnings of OAU Staff in the area of residential accommodation by providing a Medium Density Estate that is fully developed to suit the niceties of OAU and OAUTHC staff.

Oba Ojutalayo, then, enjoined the University administration to do all within its power to buy into the project for the benefit of the staff and the enhancement of socio-economic indices of Ifeland.

OAU, Morgan State University in Unprecedented Linkage Talks



The Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, is in an unprecedented linkage talks with Morgan State University, Baltimore, Maryland, USA, in a bid to shore-up the quality of graduates and programmes of the University.

This symbiotic linkage, apparently the first of its kind in the fifty-seven (57) year history of OAU, would see students spend some years of their various academic programmes at OAU, but spend their final year and one extra year at MSU and be awarded the Bachelors degree of OAU and the Masters degree of MSU, among many other benefits in the areas of students and staff exchange, collaborative research, inventions, publications, trainings, seminars, workshops and conferences.

The Director of the Centre for Advanced Transportation and Infrastructure Engineering Research, Department of Civil Engineering at MSU, Dr. Oludare Owolabi, an alumnus of OAU, who facilitated the linkage, while presenting the details of its working documents to the management of the Obafemi Awolowo University said MSU is pleased to enter into such an ambitious relationship with Great Ife. He continued that although the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was drawn up to cover all the academic progammes being run at both varsities, the pilot project under the 4 + 2 arrangement will commence with the 2019/2020 intake of the Civil Engineering Department in the Faculty of Technology.

The Vice-Chancellor, Professor Eyitope Ogunbodede who led other university officials to receive Dr. Oludare Owolabi, promised that OAU will leave no stone unturned in ensuring a hitch-free operation of the MoU when it comes into effect, assuring also that OAU will ensure that every student from MSU that will be visiting Great Ife Campus, has a most memorable stay.

He went on to express the university management’s profound gratitude to the Morgan State university for the generous offers being made, stressing that the Obafemi Awolowo University will duly reciprocate the good gesture with immense commitment to the realization of the ultimate objectives of the linkage.

Dr. Owolabi seized the opportunity of the gathering to announce an international conference holding at MSU in October, 2019 which the faculty in the Civil Engineering Department and the entire Faculty of Technology can benefit from.
