FUNAAB admission screening 2016/2017. There are indications that normalcy has returned to the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, Ogun State following a truce reached by the management and some staff unions in the institution.
This comes as the university says that its 2016/2017 pre-admission screening has commenced.
Some workers, especially members of the three non-teaching staff unions under the auspices of the Joint Action Committee, had a few weeks ago protested against the poor welfare conditions in the ivory tower.
The protest had resulted in the crippling of academic and business activities in the university.
The unions are the Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Universities, National Association of Academic Technologists and the Non-Academic Staff Union of Education and Associated Institutions.
But in a statement on Monday, the university, through its Head, Directorate of Public Relations, Emi’ Alawode, said peace had returned the school.
According to her, members of staff as well as business operators are back to their normal post and businesses.
Alawode, who said the management had addressed many of the welfare issues raised by the workers, added that it would continue to provide the right working environment for its workforce.
Meanwhile, the statement also advised candidates seeking admission to the institution this year to visit its website for details of the process.
According to Alawode, already the management of the university has fixed between July 25 and 27 for the screening.
In another development, a Professor of Horticulture, College of Plant Science and Crop Production, at the university, Goke Bodunde, has expressed worry about the high rate of post-harvest losses of tomato fruits due to current scarcity and the low production rate of the crop in the country.
The don, who frowned on the poor production and processing of tomatoes, noted that the country produced only about 13 tonnes per hectare.
This, he said, was against the average yield of about 25 tonnes per hectare produced across the globe.
On research, the academic said there was the need for the country to invest in it.
Bodunde noted, “In Nigeria it is at a very low ebb compared to what it used to be because as far back as the 1980s, research was vibrant. It was seen by the government as a priority but nowadays, it is not so. We have so many research institutes in Nigeria, not just in agriculture but in other fields and what happens there is that salaries are being paid but no money is granted for research.”Do you need original SEO ready articles for your blog or website?
