The 28th annual conference of the Association of Vice –Chancellors of Nigerian Universities, AVCNU, scheduled to hold at The Federal University of Technology, Akure, Ondo State between October 6th and October 10th 2013 has been postponed.
According to the Chairman of the Local Organizing Committee, Professor Adedayo Fasakin, the postponement, is due to the fatal plane crash involving some officials of the Ondo State Government and family members of the late former Governor of the State, Dr Olusegun Agagu. He said the Local Organizing Committee took the decision to postpone the conference indefinitely in consultation with the Committee of Vice-Chancellors (CVC).
“As a result of this monumental tragedy the AVCNU and the organizing committee decided to put the conference on hold in accordance with the prevailing mood in Ondo State occasioned by the tragedy and as a mark of respect for our departed compatriots. A new date will be announced later after due consultations with relevant stakeholders. ” Professor Fasakin said in a statement issued in Akure on Thursday.
