State of Economy: Oldest University in Nigeria Adjust Work Schedule for Staff
One of the popular tertiary Institutions in Nigeria, University of Ibadan has adjusted work schedule for the staff of the University.
TEC News gathered that the action was necessitated by the current economic situation in the country whereby the price of transportation is so high due to the removal of fuel subsidy by the federal government and the new work schedule is a temporary measure to navigate the situation.
