Author Topic: AAUA Pro-Chancellor Initiates An Essay Competition for Staff And Students  (Read 436 times)


  • Guest
The Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of Governing
Council, Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba
Akoko, Ondo State, Nigeria, His Excellency,
Ambassador Oladele Akadiri, OON, has
instituted a N1million anti-corruption essay
competition for staff and students of the
Institution as part of measures to engender
transparency and due process in the nation.
He made the pronouncement during a three-
day workshop, entitled, “Building University
Culture in Adekunle Ajasin University” held
recently on campus.

The Pro-Chancellor proposed “Can Corruption
and Indiscipline Be Eradicated from Nigeria? If
So, How? And What Role Can Adekunle Ajasin
University, Akungba, Play in Such an
Undertaking?” as theme for the essay

Ambassador Akadiri, who described such
intellectual engagement (Essay Competition)
as an indispensable element of University
Culture, said, “I am proposing a competitive
academic exercise on campus, in form of an
essay that would be open to all students and
staff, or a thesis, or a dissertation.

And the exercise could take off in July and end
in September this year, so that necessary
awards could be given to the winner and two
runners-up in October, 2015, all totaling
1,000,000 (one million) Naira, at my own

The Pro-Chancellor asked the University
Management to set up a three-man Committee
to establish the necessary ground rules and
standards for the competition.

While noting that AAUA is already noted for
academic excellence, the Pro-Chancellor said
the University and other universities in Nigeria
must inculcate Moral Culture – transparency,
honesty and absolute integrity – as a way of
life “in these days of Universal Corruption and
pervasive indiscipline in our country”.

Ambassador Akadiri said, “On an equal footing
with academic excellence, honesty and
integrity must find a permanent home at
AAUA, to such extent that, when employers of
labour are out in search of incorruptible staff,
Akungba will become their first port of call.”
