Gentlemen of the Press

Distinguished Ladies and Gentlemen

 

On behalf of Management and the Academic Board of Yaba College of Technology, I welcome you to theoccasion of the matriculation of students admitted into various programmes of study in the 2012/2013 academic session. In considering candidates for admission into the current session, management ensured strict compliance with the 70:30 ratio for Technology and management based programmes.

The seven schools of the college are:

1.       Art, Design and Printing           

2.       Engineering (comprising Civil, Electrical, Mechanical, Computer, Metallurgic and Industrial Maintenance Engineering)                          

3.       Environmental studies (Architecture, Building Technology, Estate Management, Quantity surveying, Surveying and Geo-informatics, Urban and Regional planning)

7.       Liberal Studies (Mass Communication)  

 

 

I congratulate the newly matriculated students of Yaba College of Technology.  You are indeed privileged to have been selected after the keen competition through JAMB and the rigorous post-JAMB screening by the college. It is, undoubtedly, a thing of joy and pride to be enrolled as a student of Yaba-the-Great, the cradle of higher education in Nigeria.

I urge you to make the best use of the golden opportunity presented by your admission into the college. 

The matriculation ceremony is of utmost importance.  The oath of allegiance, which you have just sworn to commits you to be of exemplary behaviour throughout your stay in this college, shunning all forms of anti-social behavior such as examination misconduct, cult activities and other unruly behaviour.  You must at all times ensure that you abide by this oath.

You will all be introduced to various structures, systems, rules and regulations in the college during the orientation programme for new students.  The students’ handbook contains detailed information about the college, for your guidance. Also the students Affairs unit is in place for your welfare and other needs.

 

At today’s ceremony, we will be matriculating new Higher National Diploma and National Diploma intakes in the region of 1,500 and 3,000 respectively.  This is a far cry from the 110,000 candidates who applied to the college as more preferred institution. 

 

In line with the Federal Government direction and our resolve at improving access to education, we have made concerted effort to improve our carrying capacity through the construction of more structures that will provide additional sitting space for our students.One of the structures is a lecture auditorium with a seating capacity of 1,300 through TETFund Special Invention.  There is also the 500 lecture theatre project which is being upgraded to a 3-storey building.  By the time these projects are completed we will be able to further provide comfortable classroom, studio and laboratory accommodation for our student.

In November 2012, the College got approval for additional streamsfor 18 programmes, thus increasing its carrying capacity by 1,150.

 

In 2012, the college received approval from NBTE to commence the following programmes in the 2012/2013 session.

 

 

 

 

 

S/N

PROGRAM

1

HND Book Publishing                                                       (1 stream of 40 students)

2

ND Marketing                                                         (2 streams of 40 students each)

6

HND Mechanical Engineering  (Power Plant option) (2 streams of 30 students each)

7

ND Polymer Technology                             (1 stream of 30 students each)

 

 

There are a few important points that I wish to highlight on this occasion.  We may describe these as core values of this academic community.

1.       Discipline in Academics

It is imperative that we recognize that the primary purpose of your enrolment in this college is to acquire high quality education.  Therefore, you must aim at academic and professional excellence in your respective disciplines.  To achieve this, you should dedicate yourselves to consistent study, regular attendance at lectures, practical classes and tutorials; as well as optimum use of the library and other learning facilities. 

2.       Discipline in Appearance and Behaviour

All students are required to obey all college rules and regulations, dress properly and demonstrate exemplary behavior at all times.  On no account should any student or group of students take the law into their hands. There are laid down procedures and effective channels of communication for taking care of your grievances through your elected Students Union officials, the office of the Dean (Student Affairs), your various Class Advisers, Heads of Department and Deans of School.  This college has a high reputation of zero tolerance for all forms of anti-social behavior and indecent dressing.

To ensure effective communication and understanding, the Students Union executives are in constant dialogue with college authorities through the office of the Dean of Student Affairs. A good number of student representatives have been co-opted as members of relevant management and academic board committees such as Students Disciplinary Committee, Sports Committee, Welfare Committee, Environmental Sanitation and Beautification Committee and the Campus Security Committee.  There is a functional SERVICOM office ready to receive your complaints and observations on the quality of teaching and other services that you receive.

 

3.       75% Class Attendance

In Yaba College of Technology, academic regulation provides that students must attend 75% of lectures in order to qualify to write examinations at the end of the semester.  I therefore want to use this opportunity to caution new students against the notion that attendance at lectures is not essential. 

[4.       Entrepreneurial Orientation

The college has some compulsory courses which must be taken by all students throughout their stay in the college.

One of these is entrepreneurial studies which trains you from your first day in school on how to be self-reliant. It is expected that by the time you graduate, you would have acquired the necessary skills to be an entrepreneur and an employer of labour rather than just another job seeker.

It is worthy of note that this college is the first higher institution in Nigeria to establish a full-fledged Centre for Entrepreneurship Development, with strong linkages with the world of commerce and industry. We are corporate members of the Nigerian Association of Small and Medium Enterprise (NASME) and the Nigerian-South African Chamber of Commerce and Industry. 

Another compulsory course is Information and Communication Technology (ICT) studies which enables you to be proficient in the use of computer and other ICT tools.

5.       Cultism

In Yaba College of Technology, it is illegal to operate a secret society or belong to a banned society.  Any contravention of this regulation will lead to expulsion and possible criminal prosecution.

The college management has taken far reaching measures to curtail the menace of cultism; because of this, our campus is free and safe from the menace. We intend to keep it so.  I advise all students to shun these vices.  I will also use this opportunity to advise the parents to counsel their children to be of good behavior throughout their stay in the college.

6.       Ban on Sale and Use of Alcohol on Campus

There is a ban on sale of alcohol on campus and use of alcohol or any intoxicating substance by students on campus.

I want to emphasise that this ban still exists and any student caught using alcohol will be summarily dealt with.

7.       Societies and Social Clubs

There are different types of societies which you are encouraged to join in Yaba College of Technology.  Some of these societies include:  Departmental Associations, State Associations and Socio Cultural Associations.  Please ensure that the society you join is registered with the student affairs unit.

8.       Religious Tolerance

Yaba College of Technology encourages freedom of worship and association in religious activities.  Christians and Muslim live together in harmony.   There is a Christian place for worship and a mosque for Muslim worship.  To foster harmonious co-existence, students are advised to strictly adhere to the rules and regulations pertaining to the use of the college premises for religious worship.

9.       Sports and Leisure

The college has made great strides in the area of sports and can confidently pride itself as an Institution with one of the best sporting facilities in the country.  I urge you to make the best use of these facilities. Eminent sportsmen and sportswomen have been produced by the college.

The college has also won not less than 5 out of the 14 past editions of the Nigerian Polytechnic Games.

10.     Internal Quality Assurance

There is aninternal quality assurance unit in the college which aims at bringing the concept of quality control and assurance in academic service delivery to the consciousness of both staff and students.  The unit ensures that every aspect of academic activity is measured to standards comparable to the best in the world. 

 

11.     Applied Research and Technology Innovation (ARTI)

The Applied Research and Technology Innovation Unit (ARTI) is a unit in the College established to promote research and linkages with relevant  private sector organizations, particularly macro, small and medium enterprises for the exploitation and use of research for development. 

The unit also assists to promote linkages between our students and students of other institutions especially in the areas of research.

12.     Academic Planning Unit

The Academic Planning Unit is pivotal to the development of academic programmes in Yaba College of Technology.  The Unit was set up in line with management decision to reposition academic activities in the college.

13.     Epe Campus

Yaba College of Technology has a second campus at Epe.  The Department of Agricultural Technology which is admitting its third batch of students is presently operating from Epe campus.  The Michael Otedola Information and Communication Centreisalso located at the Epe campus. Others such as Marine Engineering will soon start operating from Epe Campus.

CONCLUSION

I congratulate the new students on their admission into the Yabatech family, and I appeal to you to remain focused and make a success of your stay in the college.  I see all of you as my children and future leaders.  I hope you will make good progress in your studies by being focused, prayerful and hardworking and in two years’ time, at your graduation ceremony, we will be able to remember today’s occasion with nostalgia.  To the returning students, I welcome you back to the college.  I hope we shall continue to work together in harmony as we did in the last session so that this session can also be a hitch-free session. 

I also congratulate the parents and guardians of the matriculating students.  I pray that these students would remain sources of joy and pride to you always and I pray that by God’s grace they will all excel and not be distracted.

Thank you all and God bless.

RECTOR’S ADDRESS

AT THE COMMISSIONING CEREMONY

OF THE PETROLEUM TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT FUND (PTDF) INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGY (ICT)

CENTRE ON TUESDAY, JANUARY 22, 2013

 

      

Protocols

On behalf of the management, staff and students, I welcome you (Ag. Executive Secretary Mr. Jolomi Areyenenka) to this auspicious occasion of the commissioning of PTDF Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Centre here in Yaba College of Technology, the cradle of higher learning in Nigeria.

 

The journey to this commissioning began in July 2009 when the Petroleum Technology Development Fund (PTDF) selected Yaba College of Technology as one of the beneficiaries of the second phase PTDF ICT intervention project for institutions.

 

The college reacted positively to the magnanimous offer by providing a parcel of land for the development of the project.  The project which effectively commenced on February 8, 2010 was awarded to Messrs Hasting Global Service with an agreed completion period of 6 months. 

The PTDF/ICT Centre is a 100 seater building equipped with Computer Work Stations, a Server Room, Independent Power Supply (50KVA Generator), VSAT and Air Conditioning facilities.

 

The college is indeed delighted to be a beneficiary.  It is my sincere hope therefore that the commissioning of this project will herald the beginning of further collaboration between Yaba College of Technology and Petroleum Technology Development Fund.

 

Today, the centre has become a hub for students’ registration and the teaching of computer courses for staff and students.  I assure you that the college will continue to make good use of facilities  at the centre to add value to the community.

 

Finally, I once again thank the Petroleum Technology Development Fund for the support demonstrated by this noble gesture.

 

Thank you.

SCHOOL OF ENVIRONMETAL STUDENTS GET AWARD

SCHOOL OF ENVIRONMETAL STUDENTS GET AWARD

The Managing Director, Win Development Limited, Mr Idowu Raheem has promised to give an award to best students in each department from the School of Environmental Studies with effect from the 2011/2012 academic session.

This was made known at the commissioning of Architectural studio and the School library.

Raheem, who sponsored the library said the five years renewable award is to create healthy rivalry among students and to reward hard work.

The Yaba College of Technology alumnus said a library makes an institution as well as her students relevant and recent in a changing world. He noted the dwindling proficiency of graduates which he adduced to outdated curriculum, lecturers’ goals diversion and most importantly are students’ distraction and insincere government funding.

The Rector, Dr. Margaret Ladipo who was overwhelmed that an alumnus of the College had attained a peak in the building industry said the provision of a School library stocked with current books will aids acquisition of relevant skill in a technology environment which will go a long way to boost reading culture amongst students. She equally appreciated Nigerite Limited for building an airconditioned studio.

The Dean, School of Environmental Studies, Mr Inyang-Udo said the branded studio meets the universal accepted standard; therefore, he implored staff and students of the departments to ensure its maintenance. He hinted that the School of Environmental Studies Professional Advisory Board (SESPAB) also donated volumes of books to the School library.

Ladipo commended the proactiveness of the Dean and Head, Department of Architecture, Arch. Adenekan to reach out to the industry for the need of the School and charged other members of staff to love the system and “see your position as a challenge to greater height.”

UCLAN STAFF LECTURES YABATECH STUDENTS

 

The University of Central Lancashire (UCLAN) has fulfil one of its memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed with Yaba College of Technology through a student/lecturer Exchange visit recently.

 

The Lecturer, Ann Vanner came with three students, lee Sansfield, Chris Dalton and Johnny Young from the Departments of Quantity Survey, Architectural Design and Building Technology respectively.

 

The Dean, School of Environmental Studies, Mr. Inyang-Udoh Uduak said the purpose of the MOU is to create career progression for graduates of the school to do a year top-up degree programmes. Others are to establish staff/student exchange programme through lectures and exchange of research ideas.

 

Inyang-Udoh said this is the first lecture that would be delivered by UCLAN staff however; the MOU had afforded members of staff to develop themselves through P.hD programme which about five staffs are currently running in the institution.

 

Vanner lectures on ‘The Role of Architectural Technologist’ and ’15 Universal Design Principles’ pooled students from the five departments in the School of Environmental Studies.

 

A bridge building competition was organised. This encouraged team work and gave the UCLAN and Yabatech students the opportunity to design a bridge that would span 60cm using paper and cenotap. 'Read more'

The Secretary-General of AASU, Comrade Kounedji Hermann from Gambia, in his address said that the College and the Rector were awarded the 2012 Kwame Nkrumah Awards after holistically taken cognisance of their past and present achievements as a strong advocate of youth empowerment, grassroot development, educational development and egalitarianism which they have commitment over the years.

The awards, he stated further, denoted creativity, enterprise and exceptionality that made it a monumental honour of dignity and outstanding commitments, dedication and inspirational leadership demonstrated by the Rector and Yaba College of Technology in the training of young men and women as future leaders.

The Kwame Nkrumah Leadership Award series, he said, was initiated by AASU in 12 years ago and had featured prominent leaders of thought as recipients across the African Continent over the years who have distinguished themselves in their various fields of endeavours as individuals, institutions and corporate concerns of African origin.

Kounedji declared that AASU is the Continental Representative organisation of democratic students’ Union founded in 1972 at University of Science and Technology, Kumasi, Ghana, with 54 unions from Francophone and Anglophone African countries.

He said that AASU is affiliated to the international Union of Students (IUS), has a consultative status of UNESCO, ECOSOC, UNICEF, ECOWAS and accredited with UNCD and enjoying a cordial working  relationship with the UN system.

The Rector, Yaba College of Technology, Dr. Margaret Ladipo, in her response after receiving the award said that for a credible assessment of chief executives in institutions of learning performances, ‘all you need to do is to listen to the students. If you are getting it right they will tell you and if you are getting it wrong they will tell you.’

Students, Dr Ladipo said, are indeed the strong parameter in performance assessment for any institutional growth and development.

According to her, ‘it is gratifying to note that African students can converge and institute a formidable body such as AASU for the common good of African Continent and ultimate emancipation of the black race .This is a confirmation of the fact that we have what it takes to make the African continent distinct.’

Dr. Ladipo said that the Award is a reward for hardwork and an award that the College cherish dearly but came with a challenge that ‘we have to work even harder to continue to justify the confidence repose in us’.

CED, pre-requisite for accreditation

 

Passport

CED, pre-requisite for accreditation

The establishment of a Centre for Entrepreneurship Development (CED) will be a pre-requisite for accreditation of programmes in polytechnics and similar tertiary institutions in Nigeria with effect from 2012 accreditation.

The Executive Secretary, National Board for Technical Education, (NBTE) Dr. M.A Kazaure announced at the just concluded two-day workshop held at Yaba College of Technology (YABATECH).

The Executive Secretary represented by NBTE Director of Programmes, Mr. Joseph Aboi in a paper titled “Vibrant Entrepreneurship Development Centre: A Mandatory Requirement for Accreditation of National Diploma and Higher National Diploma Programmes in Polytechnics and Similar Institutions” said the requirement was a sine que non for accreditation.

Kazaure noted the criticism against the quality of the nation’s graduates of technical and technological institutions at the Education Summit held in 2012 and other fora centered on the relevance and quality of expertise gained during tutelage.

According to him, the skills acquired by some graduates were inadequate for the jobs they were trained for. The Board found that tools and equipment used in practicals were either not functioning or obsolete and where practicals are in place, workdone are not in line with current industry needs.

In addition, students’ attitudes to practicals are not favourable to industry demands because of the wrong value system which places academic qualification above skill acquisition, which unwittingly result in unemployment.

The Board also discovered that institutions present falsified or doctored reports during accreditation of their programmes.

The Executive Secretary noted that polytechnic graduates will be relevant in the scheme of science, technology and management if they embraced skill acquisition.

The objectives of CED according to the Executive Secretary are to provide institutions with more and relevant facilities for exploratory and life practical to staff and students. Also to afford them the opportunity to observe and learn skills that could guarantee final employment after graduation, and for CED to become an internal industrial setting for teaching and learning how the world of work functions outside the school system.

 

YABATECH Rector, Dr. Margaret Ladipo in her welcome address said entrepreneurial skill acquisition should not be limited to students, as lecturers could also earn revenue if the course is properly handled. According to her, “The fear of retirement will no longer be there if you are awake to your responsibility.”

At the end of the workshop, NBTE advocated a better tomorrow by introducing appropriate and corrective measures as follow;

. the production of new entrepreneurship curricula that would harmonize its content.

. furthering entrepreneurship education into practical activities.

. making entrepreneurship education a compulsory programme in the polytechnic and monotechnic system.

. introducing the establishment of Entrepreneurship Development Centres in polytechnics and similar tertiary institutions.

. making evidence of entrepreneurship activities as a pre-requisite for accreditation of programmes with effect from the 2012 accreditation exercise.

. ensure that assessment forms reflect the mandatory introduction of vibrant centre for entrepreneurial development.

. introduce more practical contacts with the students to reflect the present realities in Nigeria’s economic development plan.

. encourage positive attitudinal behavior of trained technologies as espoused by SERVICOM.

. the IQA mechanism in the polytechnics should be upgraded and made functional.

. open up the process of curriculum review to involve the industries and other relevant professional concerns to participate in curriculum development and review. Such a symbiotic relationship will afford industries the opportunity to understand and appreciate the problems facing these institutions with a view to rendering possible assistance when and wherever appropriate and/or possible.

. strict compliance with NBTE’s directives that all polytechnics in Nigeria should adhere strictly to the 70/30 percent ratio in favour of Science, Engineering and Environmental based courses, else such an institution would be classified as a Business Centre.

. institutions are also mandated to have a minimum of 10% of GNS courses in their various programmes.

. management and staff should exhibit teamwork and team spirit in the realization of set goals.

. the domestication of entrepreneurial skills should be the concern of all departments in these institutions.

 

. the Academic Planning units should be populated by professional planners to ensure strict strategic planning and implementation.

. Federal Government should provide funding for establishing and running of Entrepreneurship education programmes and Centres in institutions, and encourage the regulatory bodies such as NAFDAC to support student entrepreneurs in obtaining certification which would enable them patent and commercialize their products and sell to their immediate community.

. institutions should also come up with proposals/projects that will attract grants and funding from funding agencies.

. Chief Executives of institutions should be sensitized on the need to support Entrepreneurship Centres in their various institutions, and ensure that funds are accessible. In addition, they should encourage students patent and commercialise their products as a motivational strategy.

Publicize students’ innovation through media reporting, student project competition, seminars, workshops and community outreach.

Having once worked in the College in 1983 as a Clerical Officer before academically improving himself and coming back as Lecturer III in 1993, Dr. Adebakin represents a symbol of the dream of the up and coming generation, that with hard work, focus and determination, one can rise to the peak of one’s career.

 

Dr. Adebakin is poised to introduce a breath of fresh air into the College Administration and deploy his dexterity in organizational management as well as his academic and business management skills to complement the efforts of the present administration, as the College faces the challenges of an increasingly complex and rapidly evolving global operating environment

LADIPO CALLS FOR MUTUAL RELATIONSHIP IN INSTITUTIONAL MANAGEMENT

 

Passport

LADIPO CALLS FOR MUTUAL RELATIONSHIP IN INSTITUTIONAL MANAGEMENT

Polytechnics and Colleges of Technology Registrars have been called upon to be more innovative and engender a mutual working relationship with their chief executives.

This call was made by the Rector, Yaba College of Technology Dr. (Mrs.) Margaret kudirat Ladipo at the 58th Regular meeting of the Conference of Registrars of Polytechnics and Colleges of Technology in Nigeria (COREG) held at Yaba College of Technology, Yaba, Lagos.

In her keynote address, she charged Polytechnic Registrars to be innovative especially when it comes to entrenching global best practices for the good of polytechnic system.

“Therefore I urge you as adviser to the chief executives of your institution to continue to be more innovative especially when it comes to entrenching global best practices for the good of the polytechnic system; Your chief executives needs your support to help them achieve their mandate, they need loyalty and most time they need to count on you” She stated.

She implored the registrars to also have harmonious relationship with the academic staff in order to achieve the vision of Polytechnic education adding that, without a smooth and efficient registry there is no way the polytechnic system can achieve much.

Having realized the importance of registry in the education management, Ladipo said the college will continue to empower the registry unit through the provision of necessary infrastructural facilities, manpower development and computerization of records.

The Chairman COREG, Malam Labaran Ibrahim in his address, said that COREG is not a labour organization or a trade union in the polytechnic system; rather it is an association of Registrars formed in 1978 to serve as the platform for them to interact among themselves.

He also stated that COREG was formed in order to promote and facilitate cooperation among members and their Rectors in particular.

According to him “COREG recognize itself as one of the stakeholders in the tertiary education sector in the country and therefore strive to contribute its own quota towards the steady growth and development of the sector.”

He said further that COREG’S meeting is being rotated among members institution to pave way for the opportunity to experience the cultural heritage of the state in which the meeting is being held

The host Registrar, Biekoroma C. Amapakabo, in her welcome address said Yaba College of Technology as the first and foremost tertiary institution has proved her worth by making “Excellence” her watchword.

She enjoined her fellow registrars to always seek for exposure on issues of institutional administration outside their routine use of extant regulation stating that the quality of a Registrar has very serious implication on how the polytechnic fairs.

Amapkabo charged them to be well equipped for the discharge of their duty adding that “Capacity development is the key to successful registrarship”.

Arising from the meeting, COREG unanimously resolved as followings:

Condemns in its entirety the prevailing insecurity of lives and property of innocent citizens in some parts of the country. COREG notes the various efforts of government on the issue and urges it to take more steps to bring the situation under control.

Condoles with the families of those who lost their loved ones in the ill-fated DANA plane crash and calls on the government to ensure thorough investigation of the incident, while all airline operators should be made to comply with international Aviation Safety Rules and Regulations.

Commends the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) for the tremendous successes recorded in the conduct of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) since its introduction and urges the Board to embark on aggressive enlightenment of candidates on the choice of institutions and the intending JAMB e-examination.

Appreciates the proactive role of the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFUND) in the development of infrastructure and human capital in the nation’s tertiary institutions and reiterates its call on TETFUND to extend its long term sponsorship of academic training to Non-Teaching Staff of Tertiary Institutions.

Commends the Petroleum Trust Development Fund (PTDF) for the giant strides made in capacity building in science and technology in the tertiary institutions and calls on the agency to sustain and consolidate the achievements for the benefit of all Nigerians.

Urges National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) to expedite action on the review of the staff manual of the Federal Polytechnics.

 Examines the enormous responsibilities of the Registrar, Bursar, and Polytechnic Liberian as Principal Officers in the tertiary institutions and considers their current remuneration inadequate and urges government to address the situation by placing them on enhanced consolidated salary scale.

Observes the agony pensioners are subjected to, in the country and commends government for instituting a probe panel into the management of pension funds. It therefore urges government to ensure that those involved in the scam are appropriately sanctioned.

YABATECH OUTSHINES LAGOS SCHOOLS….. WINS GOVT ENVIRONMENT AWARD

Apparently living to its slogan, Yaba the great, the first is still the best”, Yaba College of Technology in the course of preserving the nature within its academic environment has won the Lagos State 2012 Tree Planting Award for the second time thereby outshining all institutions in the state.

The award was presented to the College at the fourth anniversary of tree and planting exercise tagged “Operation Green Lagos” by the Governor of Lagos State, Babatunde Fashola, for being one of the tertiary institutions with the best nurtured trees supporting the Lagos State government in actualizing the objectives of its operation Green Lagos.

The Rector, Margaret Kudirat Ladipo in her address, said Yabatech share the passion of the Lagos State Government on tree planting project, as they acknowledge the benefits inherent in tree planting which includes provision of shades, air environment, desert encroachment and erosion as well as reduction of noise and light glares amongst others.

According to her, “we maintained this passion all the year round in Yaba College of Technology as we continue to nurture the trees planted, everyday of the year. So to us, July 14 represents the commencement of another cycle in the everyday process of preserving our environment.”

She lamented the level of assault on Nigerian environment through indiscriminate ways trees are being pulled down without replacement which exposes the environments to inherent dangers.

She urged Nigerians to keep the lands very green and safe by planting trees for the sustenance of a green environment that portrays a sense of orderliness and serenity which could be likened to the provision of essential urban infrastructure; she averred.

In his keynote address, the Executive Gov. of Lagos State, Babatunde Raji Fashola said it is not enough to plant trees but importantly preserve the existing ones from those who wish to cut them for any reason.

He said “as much as development is desirable, expansion is inevitable, the development we crave for, is not a sufficient reason for us to jeopardize our present and the expectation of posterity. A meaningful development must have the green content for sustainability”.

The Honourable Commissioner for the Environment, Mr. Tunji Bello, who was represented by the Assistance Chief Scientific Officer, Mr. Olasunkanmi Sojimu said trees create vital habitat and promote biodiversity in that abundant forest do not just enhance lives but they save lives.

He Commended Yaba College of Technology on its belief in this laudable project of Lagos State.

Dr. Ladipo commended the entire College Community giving kudos to the Environmental Management and Beautification Committee of the College for a job well done.

Rector reiterates commitment to staff development at School of Technology 3rd Annual Lecture.

The Rector Yaba College of Technology Dr. (Mrs.) Kudirat Ladipo has reiterated the management’s commitment to improving staff development.

The rector made this disclosure at the School of Technology’s Third Annual Lecture series entitled ‘’The Impact of Technology on Economic Growth: Implementation of Academic Curricular’’.

Dr. Ladipo revealed that “one of the ways by which the polytechnic can perform effectively and remain relevant in the global arena in contemporary times is by bravely exploring the frontiers of knowledge through the institution of lecture series, workshops, conferences and seminars in engaging areas of discourse such as today’s topic; and on a regular basis.”

The rector posited that the promotion of flexible skills in teaching methodology would go a long way in expanding competency towards better positioning for productivity in a keenly competitive environment. According to her, ‘’In Yaba College of Technology we are very proactive in this area. Indeed in the past two years, not less than five hundred staff have benefitted from academic excursions such as this at different form and at no mean cost to the college.

On her part the commissioner for Education Lagos state, Mrs. Olayinka Oladunjoye who chaired the occasion said Lagos State Government under the administration of Governor Babatunde Raji Fashola has embarked on programmes that will enhance technology base in its educational system, intimating that centres have been created across the state in pursuance of achieving Millennium Development Goals in Education. She commends the organisers of the lecture series and appeal that the series be sustained.

Delivering the lecture, the Dean of the college of Food Sciences, Bells University of Technology, Ota, Professor Olugbenga Ogunmoyela called on federal government to effect radical reforms in the nation’s education curricular to enhance the creative potentials of Nigeria and its people. The don believes that a collaborative effort in manpower planning with industry input into curricular reviews was capable of spearheading the production of graduates whose training and knowledge are relevant to the needs of the community.

‘’A new radical approach is required. Hence with the political will, commitment and genuine transformational spirit to pursue the right education curricula, policies, strategies and partnership, we can unleash the creative potentials of our people, ‘’he said.

Emphasising the place of technological innovators on economic growth, Ogunmoyela said focus on research for development has shifted from classroom to the public arena where the needs of customers can be identified and produced for consumption.

‘’This means that technology has become a highly public enterprise and we now know better than to attempt to limit the frontiers of knowledge in a technologically driven generation, and in a world where traditional barriers of access to information have been broken’’, he submitted. 

Earlier in his welcome address, the Dean School of Technology, Yabatech, Mr. J. O. Adigun said that it is imperative to know that this year’s lecture title was carefully selected as an integration of the department strategic objective on Millennium Development Goals in education.

Our goal is to strengthen Unity and tolerance – Ladipo

Dr. (Mrs.) Margert Kudirat Ibiyeye Ladipo the rector, Yaba College of Technology has said one of her cardinal goals since assuming the post of chief executive of the institution is to promote unity, cohesion and mutual understanding among the members of the institution’s community as a means of creating a conducive atmosphere for transformational growth. The challenge before any serious administration she said must be how to lift the standard of education which had been her priority in the last two years.

This was revealed at the interactive family meeting between the management and members of staff of Yaba College of Technology recently. She declared that her stage of administration has always maintained an open door policy.

According to her, “within the last two years we have voted huge resources for staff development. This is in line with our firm belief that regular training improves the individual’s knowledge base. I am happy to note that many of our staff are presently studying for their masters and PhD degrees. This has been yielding a positive results as the number of staff with PhD has increased impressively in the last two year ‘’I want to assure the staff that management will continue to encourage them to succeed in this endeavour.

To foster staff and students welfare the rector stated that the continuing challenges of office and classroom constraints will soon be a thing of the past in that before end of the first quarter of this year, the 7 storey building and school of science building constructed through TETFUND intervention would be commissioned for use by staff and students.

These are in addition to the CED building Foundry building of the school of Engineering and the security office already commissioned for the same propose; she added.

Also speaking further, Ladipo said that plans are in the pipeline to construct a 1,300 capacity auditorium and a complex for School of Technology. The 1,300 capacity auditorium when completed will house a gallery’s and a 4 floor building for staff offices with studios and classrooms attached to it.

Rehabilitation of the students hostels has also been completed for students convenience and to enhance their academic and social well being in the college.

The rector also revealed that the Academic Planning Unit (APU) was set up in line with management decision to reposition academic activities in the college.

The role of the academic planning unit in any institution is key to the development of academic programmes, she ascerted. The rector informed staff that an Anti-corruption & Transparency unit had been set up in line with the Federal government directive.

The unit, the rector said, is expected amongst other things to identify and curb corrupt practices and procedures. It will also receive and investigate complaints of corruption from the college community and carry out enlightenment campaigns for staff

She solicited for the support of every staff on the up-coming accreditation exercise to ensure that all programmes scale the accreditation hurdle.

Rector Warns Students on 75 Percent Class Attendance

The management of Yaba College of Technology has warned the new intake of the college on the attainment of 75 percent class attendance in a semester as parameter that qualifies   students to seat for any examination in the college.

The warning was given by the Rector of the college, Dr.(Mrs) Kudirat Ibiyeye-Ladipo at the 2011/2012 academic session matriculation ceremony held at the institution’s Sports Complex.

The caution, she said , was to disabuse the minds of all students that class attendance at lectures is not essential; adding that it is a must that students attend 75 percent of all lectures in order to qualify to write the examinations at the end of the semester.

Dr. Ibiyeye-Ladipo stated in clear terms that the students are required to obey college rules and regulations, dress properly and demonstrate exemplary behaviour at all times and on no account should any student or group of students take the law into their hands.

The rector emphasized the laid down procedures and effective channels of communication for taking care of their grievances through their elected Student Union executives, the office of the Dean Students’ Affairs, class advisers, heads of department and deans of school.

“The college has a high reputation of zero tolerance for all forms of anti-social behaviour and indecent dressing”; she stressed.

Dr. Ibiyeye-Ladipo, however, lamented that only about four thousand new intakes were being matriculated out of 106,000 candidates that applied to the college and implored the successful candidates to count themselves lucky and not misuse the rare opportunity.

She stated that concerted efforts was being made to improve the college carrying capacity through the construction of more structures for lectures in 2012 that will provide additional sitting space of not less than two thousand five hundred in line with the federal government’s direction of improving access to education.

‘One of the proposed structures is a lecture auditorium with a sitting capacity of one thousand three hundred which is to be provided this year through TETFUND special intervention. Approval was received from the immediate past college Council in 2011 for the conversion of a 500 – lecture theatre single floor project to a four-floor project to provide additional office, classroom and laboratory accommodation  towards improving carrying capacity’; the rector revealed.

Dr. Ibiyeye-Ladipo, therefore, urged the new students to make the best use of the golden opportunity presented to them through their admission, stating that they were indeed privileged to have been admitted after the keen competition through JAMB and the rigorous post-JAMB screening by the college.

She also appealed to them to remain focused and make a success of their stay in the college.
