Despite its dwindling resources, the Ondo State Government has three universities. They are the Adekunle Ajasin University Akungba-Akoko, the Ondo State University of Science and Technology, Okitipupa and the University of Medical Sciences, Ondo.

Investigations showed that the three universities were battling with poor funding.

The Chairman of the Joint Action Committee of Staff Unions of #OSUSTECH, Mr Dayo Temola, confirmed the underfunding of the institution.

He said, “In OSUSTECH, before the Akeredolu administration, we were receiving N60m as monthly subvention. It was from this that salaries were paid and the university was run. The money was not even enough to pay salaries. As I speak with you, staff members are being denied training. Lecturers have no research grant because of inadequate funding. When (Rotimi) Akeredolu government came, it reduced the subvention to N42m. We kicked against it but nothing was done.”

Also, the Chairman of the OSUSTECH branch of ASUU, Dr Dipo Komolafe, corroborated Temola’s position.

He stated, “The university is now seriously groaning to meet its needs. The university is struggling to pay salaries now and we have increased the number of staff from 55 to 80.

“Our academic allowance has not been paid. We are being owed about N140m academic allowance. We have written a series of letters to the government on the matter, but nothing has been done.”

You do not know what God is up to. You may feel overlooked, and nobody is giving you credit. Do not worry. God knows how to promote you out of season.
