Despite the ongoing strike action by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, the Vice-Chancellor of the Federal University, Oye-Ekiti (FUOYE), Prof. Kayode Soremekun has insisted that the school would hold its virtual matriculation scheduled for August 28.

When the strike commenced earlier, the Ibadan Zonal Coordinator of ASUU, Prof Ade Adejumo had faulted the virtual matriculation of Osun State University in Osogbo and described it as a scam.

Still, the VC of FUOYE is bent on holding the virtual matriculation. When speaking with reporters, Soremekun said he was not answerable to ASUU and that he had the right to run the university.

The professor further said that about 6,000 students had been admitted for the 2019/2020 academic session across various disciplines in the university.

"We are having virtual matriculation on August 28 for the 2019/2020 academic session. It will be virtual in the sense that we will put all the students on alert and in order to avoid the crowd crush, only the principal officers, Dean of Students Affairs and the Vice-Chancellor will be there", he said.
