Stating this in his welcome address on the occasion of the Oversight Visit to the college by the Senate Committee on Education, the Provost said the monthly overhead for the college is N6 million, including direct teaching.

He explained that fuelling the electric generators alone gulped close to two million a month, this is in addition to paying for conferences, workshops and seminars, teaching and examination materials, maintenance and travelling allowance among others.

He added that since April, 2007, the federal government stopped paying the salaries of the security and cleaning staff, important as the services are to the college. “We have now been told to source money to pay peculiar academic allowances, while our internally generated revenue (IGR) which is expected to supplement all these is nothing to write home about.”

He further noted that their only source of IGR was the Directorate of Continuing Education, saying as a part time outfit, all services rendered by resource persons are paid for. “At the end of the day, only a small fraction of the total amount received is left as revenue for the college.”

Responding, the Chairman, Senate Committee on Education, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar Bagudu, said the committee has noted the problem and assured that the problems would be addressed accordingly.
