Governing Council takes steps for Upgrade of FSS Oyo


The Chairman and members of the Governing Council of the Federal School of Surveying, Oyo in Oyo State are expected to fine tune some critical decisions taken in their previous meetings for possible upgrade of the school and the appointment of a substantive Registrar. Administrator O. O. Oyedele has since been acting and he is expected to be confirmed by the council.

The FSS which was established in 1908, about 113 years ago is the only school offering only surveying and geo-informatics and related courses in the country.

The Surveyor General of the Federation (SGoF), Surv. Samuel Adeniran Taiwo who is the Chairman of the council, while giving his opening speech at the meeting said that through their activities, histories were being created daily and that it was wise for them to continue to make useful contributions for the advancement of the school for posterity to judge them well.

He charged members of the council to work assiduously towards further development of the school hence there were many issues to resolve to achieve progress. He explained the significance of making contributions consciously for concrete achievements.

He disclosed that the council earlier had an emergency meeting to deal with some issues of urgency as he welcomed new members of the council wishing the former well in their future commitment.
