The University Management has engaged the stakeholders of the Cattle Production Ventures (CPV) in a constructive dialogue culminating in a mutual agreement after the reported case of sharp practices perpetrated by one Mr. Yomade Olugbile at the Ventures.

During the session held on April 17, 2024, at the Postgraduate School Auditorium, the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Babatunde Kehinde reiterated the University’s dedication to addressing the concerns of the CPV stakeholders.

The primary objective of the meeting was to foster a collaborative discussion among CPV stakeholders to devise equitable and sustainable solutions to the reported irregularities at the Ventures.

In his Address, the Vice-Chancellor stated that the stakeholders were in business with a University that holds integrity high, adding that the CPV was established not as a revenue-generating Unit but as a means of community engagement, bridging the gap between academia and society.

Regarding recent challenges within the CPV, Prof. Kehinde disclosed that upon receiving reports, thorough investigations were conducted, leading to legal action for appropriate redress.

Furthermore, he underscored the importance of engaging with affected parties directly, leading to the consensus reached during the meeting.

Following deliberations with stakeholders, it was agreed that the University would prioritise the resolution of grievances for individuals who adhered to official registration procedures, before addressing cases involving alternative channels.

Meanwhile, an 8-Man Sub-Committee was constituted to be chaired by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Development, Prof. Kola Adebayo, to further look into the resolution of grievances.

Present at the meeting were the Acting Registrar, Mrs. Oluwatoyin Dawodu; University Librarian, Dr. Abayomi Owolabi; Director, Veterinary Teaching Hospital (VTH), Prof. Olufemi Ojo, and the Director, Institute of Human Resources Development (INHURD), Prof. Oladele Talabi, as well as Prince Tunde Gbadebo.

Others were the Chairman, ASUU-UNAAB, Dr. Oluwagbemiga Adeleye; Chairman, Cattle Production Ventures Interim Management Committee, Mr. Olufisayo Amubode, including many stakeholders within and outside of the University.
