Benue State University Cuts Costs to Sustain Research, Teaching

The Governing Council of Benue State University has resolved to take proactive measures to cut down cost for the sustenance of teaching and research in the institution.

The decision is contained in a statement issued by the Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of the Council, Prof. Ode Ojowu, made available on Thursday in Makurdi.

The statement quoted Ojowu as saying that contract staff whose tenure had expired would no longer be renewed, except contracts that were based on citizenship or critical needs.

He stated that employment into the university which was not required for accreditation purposes would be suspended forthwith and urged the school management to work out modalities to curtail overhead expenditure.

He said university funds would no longer be used to sponsor foreign trips of staff until further notice and appealed to those concerned to bear the cost.

He added that the measures would last, pending improvement in the financial situation of the university.
