Ogun - The Chairman, Ogun House of Assembly Committee on Education, Science and Technology, Mr. Yinka Mafe, on Tuesday expressed dissatisfaction with the budget performance of some of the state's tertiary institutions.
Mafe expressed the concern during the committee's visit to the institutions in continuation of its oversight function to the state education institutions.
He, however, commended the authority of Tai Solarin University of Education, Ijagun, Ijebu Ode, for its ingenuity in the running of the institution.
``The building of 1,000 capacity hostel each for male and female students from your internally generated revenue is commendable.
``I assure you that the Ogun State House of Assembly will do all that is possible to ensure your continued existence,” Mafe said.
The chairman said that the tour was to enable the house to know the extent of progress so far made by the institutions.
The Vice Chancellor, Tai Solarin University of Education, Prof Segun Awonusi, said that the institution was the first to conduct the post JAMB examination on electronic platform.
He said that salaries were paid as at when due.
At the Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago Iwoye, the acting Vice Chancellor, Prof Saburi Adesanya, said the institution could not embark on any capital project due to paucity of funds.
Members also visited other institutions such as Abraham Adesanya Polytechnic, Ijebu Igbo and Gateway Polytechnic, Sapade.
