OAU Stops Automatic Employment For First Class Graduates

OAU logo

The Vice Chancellor, Obafemi Awowolo University, Ile Ife, Prof. Bamitale Omole, yesterday said the university would no longer offer automatic employment to graduates who make First Class degree. Omole was addressing journalists in Ile Ife at a news conference to mark the 41st convocation ceremony of the institution. He said graduates who make First Class should forget about automatic employment as there is no more vacancy as a result of the current economic situation in the country. He noted that the idea of giving automatic employment to First Class graduates by the university was designed in the 1980s to retain them because they were not always willing to remain in the academics.
“The truth is that our First Class graduates should forget about automatic employment considering the dwindling resources and given the large number of students who obtain first class grade now. It is no longer possible for us to offer them automatic employment,” he said. Do you think is a good decision?
