The University of Ilorin has inaugurated its Communication Committee with a view to supervising and improving on the communication facilities on campus.
While inaugurating the committee, the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, said the university has invested heavily on communication facilities but the impacts have not reached a desirable level. He described how communication has changed the world and how positive and negative it has resulted in revolutions both in the past and in the contemporary times.
He stressed that communication should be strengthened to fast-track development and tasked members to take the assignment seriously.
In her address, Chairman and former acting Dean of Communication and Information Sciences, Dr. (Mrs.) O. V. Mejabi, assured the Vice-Chancellor of the preparedness of her committee to discharge the given mandate.
She noted that to facilitate communication among key officers of the university, 50 Starcomms phones had been distributed while a higher number would still be given out, stressing that the telephones should be on the secretariesâ€™ desks, rather than those of their principals and that there should always be people to receive calls.
