This will be sustained with modern innova on for more eﬃcient service delivery”, he added. Prof Banjo further hinted that the management is going paperless while urging members of staﬀ to key into the policy so as not to be left behind. “Training would soon be organised for Chairman and Secretaries of University Committees on online administration of meeting processes and procedures in line with our paperless vision”. The Vice-Chancellor noted that under his stewardship, members of staﬀ would continue enjoying conducive working conditions with appropriate training.
