The Ogun State Governor and Visitor to the University, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, CON, FCA has charged members of the newly inaugurated Governing Council of Tai University of Education, Ijagun, Ogun State to take Nigeria’s Premier and Preferred University of Education to enviable level and maintain the tempo of academic excellence.
He gave the advice during the inauguration of the Governing Council of the Institution, with the belief that with the antecedent and wealth of experience of members, there is no doubt, appointees who are seasoned administrators and technocrats would not let the State down.
“Assignments like this comes with huge challenges and responsibilities, ensure that the University is well run” the Governor, challenged.
In his inaugural speech, the newly appointed Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of the Governing Council, Prof. Oluwafemi Olaiya Balogun commended the Ogun State Governor for considering the appointees worthy among an array of human resources the Gateway State is blessed with.
Prof. Balogun further assured Governor Amosun that the crop of people put in place to paddle the affairs of the Institution will sustain the nobel creeds associated with the late sage, Dr. Tai Solarin, whose name the University was named after, as an article of faith in the discharge of their assignments.
Prof. Balogun, however, appealed to the State Government to release substantial funds as ‘executive parting gift’ to the University in order to ameliorate the lingering paucity of funds the Institution is currently facing.
Other members of the Governing Council are:
Prof. Abayomi Arigbabu – Vice Chancellor
Mr. Opeyemi Agbaje
Barr. (Mrs.) Adeola Tayo
Barr. Demola Badejo
Prof. Taiwo Edun
Prof. Julius Niyi Benedict
