TASUED remains Ogun owned institution - Registrar

26 March 2013, 13:02

Ogun - The Management of Tai Solarin University of Education (TASUED), Ijebu-Ode, Ogun, has debunked a media report that government has delisted the university as one of the state owned institutions.

This is contained in a statement signed by the university registrar, Femi Kayode on Monday in Ijebu-Ode.

Kayode said that the media report was a deliberate attempt to cause disaffection between the institution and the state government, as well as mislead the general public on the status of the institution.

The registrar said that the institution was still being funded and maintained by the state government.

He blamed the author of the said report for not authenticating the it  before publishing.

``A mere omission of name from the diary was used as a basis for such a generalised statement to the public,’’ he said.

According to him, the state government till date, carries out its responsibilities on the school in the area of management and funding,  and the school is still in existence.

Kayode specifically cited the recent approval given the institution by Gov. Ibikunle Amosun to access the Tertiary Institution Fund (TETFUND) as proof that the university still existed.

``The university under the new leadership currently enjoys a very productive and supportive assistance from the state government.

``The university, however, enjoins the general public to resist the temptation of being miss-informed through a mischievous report.

``The institution till date continues to exist and enjoys the support of the state government,’’ he said.
