Otunba Titi Laoye Tomori who was represented by the Tutor-General representing Osun East, Mr. Kola Buari told university administrators they owe so much to the management of “our citadel of learning in the bid to prevent them from being turned into hot spots for chaos.”
In her presentation entitled; Delivering the University Mandate in Nigeria in the 21st Century-Issues of Standard and Quality, the guest lecturer and the immediate past Registrar/Chief Executive of WAEC, Alhaja Mulikat Bello maintained that quality inputs, if taken through quality processes, will most likely produce quality outcomes.
The ANUPA 2013 get together ceremony had registry lecture series, conferment of awards, send-forth for the retired members, induction of new members and the launching of N25 million development fund for the purchase of ANUPA bus and construction of an events centre as part of the activities.
