The wife of the Ekiti State Governor, Mrs. Feyisetan Fayose, has commissioned the N70 million water factory built by the university, describing the entrepreneurial policy of the institution as outstanding.
The VC disclosed that the business innovations will help in shoring up the internally generated revenues of the institution.
Bandele revealed that the university has also commissioned its block industry while tremendous and appreciable works have been done on its bakery factory, which he said will commence operation soon.
The VC said: “In pursuance of strengthening the internationalization agenda of this university, we are into Memoranda of Understanding with the University of California, Faculty of Agriculture, Auburn University, Alabama, USA and University of Nottingham University, UK in agriculture, engineering and sciences.
“The collaborative efforts would give opportunities for staff exchange in engineering, science, mathematics and agriculture and also encourage bulk lecturing where an academic staff could come from abroad and lecture EKSU students”.
Bandele said the dream of making EKSU a full-fledged residential institution was gradually being realized with the 20,000-bed space hostels being constructed that would accommodate large number of students’ population
