The Registrar, Federal University Lafia (FULafia), Dr. Idris O. Othman, has called on staff to adhere strictly to the university’s core values of integrity, innovations and excellence.
Idris, who stated this while speaking to FULafia Bulletin at his office, disclosed that his success as a University administration manifested in his ability to make workers embrace the university’s core values and made them serve as their guiding principles of operations.
He said: “Right from inception, we have tried to set and maintain standard in terms of building self esteem of administrative staff through engaging them to University activities at committee level. We train and retrain staff so that their orientation and attitude would fit into what we expect of the university’s staff.
“Compared with workers in other universities, our staffers have come a long way in achieving our university’s core values, especially in terms of appearance, attitude and job performance. But we were not there yet. There is need for improvement, specifically in the area of minutes writing and production.”
He pointed out that how the recent university’s employment scam in FULafia was handled by its administrators had portrayed their dexterity in handling crisis situation.
“Above all,” he said, “the Management has shown that FULafia is not ready to compromise on its values and standard. It clearly showed that the University is out to curtail all forms of vices.”
He advised members of staff not to compromise their integrity and work hard to develop the budding University.
