An unconfirmed report has it that the Adekunle Ajasin University (AAUA) Akungba has employed new lecturers to replace the striking ones.
The Vice Chancellor of the institution, Prof. Femi Mimiko, advised the new lecturers to follow the work ethics of the Institution and always observe the principles of the teaching profession.
Prof. Mimiko, who also asked the academics to be loyal to the University at all times, delivered the message on Monday last week at the Opening Ceremony of a two-day orientation programme organized by the Institution for the new lecturers.
The VC said, “Our expectations from you on the job are to be in constant search for knowledge and devise the innovative way of dissemination. There must not be mention of you in anything that is not worthy. Be role models to students and enhance their moral standard. You must be like counselors to them at all times. Be shapers of opinions. Engage in constructive criticism of society. Be solution generators. Be focused and play a big role in national development.
“AAUA is a public trust that is dedicated to building leaders. You must, therefore, be loyal to the system. We expect you to give to this University an undiluted loyalty. We just launched AAUA ALWAYS as a new campaign. The message is that you must think about this University at all times.”
The Vice-Chancellor while commending them for making it through the rigorous interviews also pointed out the importance of the orientation programme.
He said, “This induction is to expose you to our own peculiar form of pedagogy that we want you to imbibe and to continue to sustain.”
