While speaking to FUO Media Team, Mr. Sunday Olawoye, Co-ordinator and spokes person of the group said their visit was prompted by the impressionable presentation rendered by the FUO Vice Chancellor, Prof. Mobolaji Aluko at University of Port Harcourt recently during the Audit Exercise organized by the Federal Ministry of Education to evaluate how TETFUND disbursed funds were used by University administrators in the South-South.
He added that the Association also was moved to use the opportunity to see first-hand these laudable achievements within the short time of the Institution’s existence.
