I do not intend to bore my readers with the litany of achievements made by this present administration but for perspective purposes, it will serve better to lead you into the account of stewardship of our own icon Dr John Taiwo Adekolawole Edaogbogun

Agreeably, Within the period under review,his administration have been able to build an institution of good, strong, firm and fair leadership equipped to tackle the challenges of capacity building, knowledge, wealth creation and most importantly transparency.

His administration had put in place measures aiming to pattern the scope of the curricular and content of academic programmes in tune with established ones to arouse students' curiosity about the efficacy of received knowledge, to investigate the efficiency of operational procedures,ostensibly such a system would also give room for students to devise alternative processes and models which can perform at higher levels of efficiency.
