Federal and State Governments have been called upon to exempt all universities from the Treasury Single Account, TSA, in order to stimulate development.
Vice Chancellor, Plateau State University, PLASU, Prof. Doknan Sheni, made the call on Wednesday in Bokkos during the matriculation of the university’s newly admitted students for 2015/2016 academic session.
Sheni lamented the frustration of management of universities in their quest to bring about development in the institutions giving the bureaucracy involved in accessing funds.
“The TSA is a good policy but not good for universities in terms of their desire to bring about infrastructural development for conducive environment for studies.
“We hope the federal Government will have a rethink over the inclusion of universities so as to give us the needed atmosphere to operate without hiccups. ’’ he stated.
The Vice Chancellor disclosed that the recent accreditation of PLASU by NUC was a stimulant toward enhancing the development of the institution.
According to him, “university education today has become a very important and necessary component in the drive toward laying a solid foundation for both the socio-Political and economic development of the nation. ’’
“This account for the growing competition among the youths in search for the Golden Fleece, which is faced with the challenges of getting the needed facilities and equipment with which to train them, ’’ the VC
pointed out.
Sheni admonished the students to have it at the back of their minds that they have come to the university to obtain knowledge with which they would use to development the country and so must be serious and committed.
He warned them against involving themselves in cultism and other vices, which he said the university does not tolerate.
The VC said that the university under his leadership has adopted a policy of providing both employment and training opportunities that reflect the diversity of the state of optimum result.
However, a total of 744 students were inducted out of 1, 150 students admitted for the 2015/2016 academic session.
