Expert Decries Ineffectiveness Of Old Varsity Workers

A former chairman, Association of Registrars of Nigerian Universities, Dr Omojola Awosusi has decried the ineffectiveness of old administrative staff of universities.

A renowned administrator, who noted that the role of administrators in the university was critical, stated that some of the old workers were being paid without doing the job.

Awosusi, who was a former Registrar of the Ekiti State University, Ado Ekiti, said this at the 5th annual registry lecture series of the Elizade University, Ilara Mokin, Ondo State.

The lecture was titled, ‘Pathway of overcoming challenges of the university system in the 21st century: university administrators and the imperative of the value addition.’

The guest lecturer described a university administrator as a person who is ubiquitous and involved in everything and anything in the university system.

He said, “Every staff of a university must be encouraged to add value to the system. Each institution must add value to its system in terms of ICT infrastructure, research facilities, teaching and learning deliverables. Each university must invest in staff training, especially that of non-teaching staff. What is neglected could be what will be affected.

“In every university today, there is a disused old registrar or bursar being paid for doing nothing. The NUC should mandate the adoption of an Electronic Document Management System by all universities.
