Ogbia Clan Chairmen Forum Ijaw Youth Council (Worldwide) has pledged to work closely with Federal University Otuoke to tackle any form of insecurity that may arise within its campus and environs.
The group made the pledge when they paid a courtesy visit to the Vice Chancellor, Federal University Otuoke, Prof. Mobolaji Aluko in his office at Otuoke on Tuesday, 2nd September, 2014.
Speaking on the aim of the visit, the leader of the group, Comrade Mac-Ake Prince noted that IYC is poised to synergize with the University to ensure adequate policing of lives and property in the new Institution.
Comrade Mac-Ake solicited for more admission and employment slots to the youths of Ogbia which according to him will help reduce criminality in the area. The IYC leader further said the present leadership of the council is working out modalities to set up a foundation to develop science and technology based learning in order to equip them for future employment opportunities.
Responding, the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Mobolaji Aluko stated that the Institution is guided by rules and regulations which must be adhered to in matters relating to admissions, and employment.
He however noted that the University management will critically analyse their requests and duly address them.
Prof. Aluko who welcomed the collaboration on security advised the delegates of the youth body to look out for other opportunities in other Federal establishments where Bayelsa quota has not been optimally utilized.
The Ogbia Clan Chairmen Forum of IYC is made up of four clans of Oloibiri, Anyama, Abobiri and Kolo.
