Rector advises Yabatech lecturers to start night classes
Omokungbe, who is the first graduate of Yabatech to become the Rector of the institution advises lecturers to start 7p.m. to 9 p.m. lectures.
The Rector gave the advice during the inauguration of the Common Room established by members of the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics in Yabatech.
Omokungbe said the facility is meant to unite lecturers from different departments and encourage inter-departmental collaboration adding that lecturers could take off from the common room for their night lectures.
“I want to thank you, the executives and members, for setting up this common room, and I urge you to put it to good use.
“Don’t let sentiment destroy this place; let us continue to rub minds together here.
“When we meet in common room like this, the idea of collaborating together begins to come up, and our job will be much easier.
“In the past, you can hardly see lecturers from Food Technology Department, those in science around; but with this, we can see ourselves and look after ourselves.
“Sometimes, you will not see some people for like three to six months; but with this arrangement, you can keep your relationships and know the whereabouts of your colleagues'.
“So, I don’t know if the union intends to open it to 9.00 p.m., because if you do that, then the 7 to 9 p.m. lecture becomes more interesting; you can take off from here, since alcohol will not be sold.
“Lecturers can take off from the common room and go to the lecture room, I hope that will be done soon,” he said.
