The Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, Federal University of Technology, Owerri, has sent congratulated the university’s Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Nnenna Oti, as she assumes office on Monday.
Oti is the 8th and first female substantive Vice-Chancellor of the University.
The Chairman of FUTO SSANU branch, Comrade Uchenna Nwokeji, said the VC’s lifelong firsts had led her towards emerging as the first female VC of the university.
He said, “We urged you to draw from the milk of human kindness in you and graciously enthrone a culture that recognises and improves the overall welfare and wellbeing of all FUTO staff, including career advancement and promotions.
“As you assume office, we believe that this is not the time to excessively celebrate. Your time of celebration will come at the end of your tenure, when your scorecard will be for the world to judge. Therefore, roll up your sleeves and get ready to labour for all to fulfill your mandate which is to take our FUTO to the next level.”
