Describing them as some of the most important members of the University Community, the vice-chancellor noted that throughout the strike period, the staff were on the ground to provide essential services.

He also stated that tools and equipment needed to improve their productivity would be provided within the shortest possible time.


He added that the Management had also put in place a committee to identify and reward those who distinguish themselves in their areas of assignment, saying that "the University would have a Hall of Fame where photographs of such staff would be placed to serve as motivation for others."


The vice-chancellor, equally, called on them to discharge their duties within the rule and regulations of the University and report any act capable of breaching the peace and security on campus.


He warned that anyone found wanting in the discharge of his or her duties would be dealt with decisively.


In their different responses, some staff of the Directorate expressed their gratitude to the vice-chancellor for convening the interactive sessions, saying that it showed how much they were valued by the University.
