FUNAAB Begs FG To Retain Management Courses



The vice chancellor of Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB), Prof Kolawole Salako, has appealed to the federal government to rescind its decision to abolish the College of Management Sciences (COLMAS) in the institution.

The vice chancellor, who noted that the university was no longer admitting students for management programmes, however, expressed regrets at the government decision.

“We definitely have no option than to comply with the policy. We complied immediately when the federal government pronounced it and we’ve stopped admitting students for courses in management sciences.

“However, those students who are currently running such programmes in the college must, however, be allowed to graduate,” he said.

Salako said that the government decision would affect the students and lecturers of COLMAS, as the students might not be able to make historical reference to the college as their alma mater, while the lecturers would have to seek employment elsewhere.

He said what the university authorities needed to do was to modify the curriculum of COLMAS to reflect a bias toward agriculture.

“There’s no law that says that even an accountant cannot study agriculture. All we need to do is to modify our curriculum to give orientation to our students to appreciate agriculture.

“That is the essence of being a specialised university. The federal government should revive the college and we shall modify our curriculum to fit in properly,” he said.
