In order to consolidate the efforts of the University Management in the area of training, members of staff of both Bursary and Audit Units of Tai Solarin University of Education, Ijagun, Ogun State under the auspices of Bursary Staff Association recently organised a-day training for members of staff of both units which had as its theme "Repositioning the Financial Service Provider for Excellent Service Delivery".

In his keynote address, the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Abayomi Arigbabu commended the two units of the department for contributing to the financial standard of the University with a plea to continue to support his vision of placing the University on high pedestal.

He, however, described Bursary department as a key component to the actualisation of his vision, adding that his own theme for the training would rather be "Repositioning TASUED Bursary for Efficient Service Delivery".

The Vice Chancellor, therefore, appealed to the two units to work in tandem with the philosophy of the University.

While welcoming participants to the training programme, the University Bursar, Mr. Ifeoluwa Odusanya, noted that efficient management of financial resources was sine qua non to sustainable development of any university system in the country. He further disclosed that the University Management is on the verge of seconding accountants to various Colleges in order to instill probity and accountability in the University.

The Bursar, however, commended the University Management for the support given to the department in view of the importance of Bursary to the survival of the University.

In his goodwill message, the Deputy Vice Chancellor, Prof. Oluwole Banjo, urged the Bursary Staff Association to sustain the training and as well prepare members of the Association towards efficient service delivery.

In his response at the event, the Chairman, Bursary Staff Association, Mr. Sesan Ibirogba assured the University Management of the readiness of its members to support the aspiration of the Vice Chancellor towards achieving his vision and mission.

A seasoned Accountant and Guest Speaker at the training, Mr. Goke Isola later spoke extensively on Financial Statement Preparation and using IPSAS Analysis on the job.
