Plans to sign MoU with FETHI on medical college take-off

The management of Federal University, Oye-Ekiti (FUOYE) has planned to engage the services of the Department of State Services (DSS), the police and other allied security agencies to curb the activities of Internet fraudsters and cultists operating in the university.

Also, to ensure the smooth take-off of the proposed College of Medicine of the university, the management has agreed to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Federal Teaching Hospital, Ido-Ekiti (FETHI) for temporary use of the facility to train pioneer students.

The new FUOYE’s Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Sunday Abayomi Fashina, who said this, at the weekend, at a press conference where he unveiled his agenda, promised that criminalities would be uprooted completely under his leadership.

Fashina said his administration would run a course without prognosis and assurances to get accreditation, saying he has begun talks with the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria (MDCAN) for the running of the College of Medicine in the university.

“We are going to sign MoU with FETHI for temporary use of their facility to begin our medical college. We appreciate the Oye community for donating 100 hectares of land to this university for the building of our own teaching hospital.

“We are sure that we will get accreditation within the shortest time we begin college. The Faculty of Basic Medical Sciences we just established will serve as a launchpad for the College of Medicine,” he said.

The VC, therefore, promised that he would unite and strengthen the factionalised Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) in the university to ensure a stable academic calendar and peace on campus, saying that he has begun a process of reconciliation among contending forces.
