Former Kwara State University Lecturer commits suicide

A former lecturer at the Department of Crop Production, College of Agriculture, Kwara State University, Malete, Dr. Solomon Osunlola, committed suicide yesterday Friday, November 17th.
According to reports, the registrar of KWASU had written to inform him of his conversion to a contract staff from a full-time appointment. This reportedly got the deceased so depressed that some of his friends had to seek spiritual help because it became a serious case.
The deceased had lost his wife three months ago. One of his friends had offered to assist him with a job at Landmark University but Osunlola declined and refused to submit his credentials.
Yesterday, his family members had to force his room door open after he did not step out in the morning. Sadly, they discovered that he had committed suicide.
Confirming his death, the director, Public Relations, KWASU, Dr. Isiaka Aliagan, said
“The Management of KWASU, Malete, would like to clarify that the late Dr. Oluremi Solomon Osunlola, was a Lecturer 1 in the Department of Crop Production, College of Agriculture. He joined the services of the Institution on a full-time appointment in 2010. However, during staff verification, it was discovered that the late Osunlola had already retired from the Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Kwara Office, before taking up a full-time appointment with KWASU.
Despite the fact that the deceased violated the rule of his engagement, the university, in August, 2017, converted his appointment to contract on compassionate grounds. This is all we can say about the late Osunlola.”
His remains have been deposited at the morgue.

” Just bring your baby”, Professor tells Student Mum

FUT Minna donates books to UNIJOS

Federal University of Technology (FUT) Minna, has donated 148 titles with 458 volumes of books to the University of Jos which library was gutted by fire late last year.

Vice Chancellor of FUT, Prof Musbau Akanji, said the books were donated because the colossal loss of books and equipment in UniJos was a national calamity.

“A library is a centre of civilisation of all cultures because it is a custodian of knowledge. When a library is burnt, it is like a culture is destroyed. It is not easy to re-build a lost library,” the VC noted.

Responding, the Vice Chancellor of UniJos, Prof. Seddi Sebastian Maimako, applauded FUT Minna for coming to the aid of the institution, adding that the university was encouraged by the kind gesture.

Prof. Maimako, who was represented by the University Librarian, Dr. Stephen Akintunde, assured FUT Minna that the books would be properly channeled and classified for the use of the students.

Prof. Maimako further revealed that the university library was host to six faculties, stating that the institution lost over 60 per cent of its books and equipment to the fire.

He disclosed that the Federal Government, through the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund), approved N729 million for the renovation of the library and that construction work would soon commence after the bidding process.
If Nigerian campuses continue like this, we fit now dey yarn about United Nigeria… Gbosa for FUT Minna jare
