He eventually gave the leadership to Mrs. Adelusi, A.I.

The only challenge faced by the department was the non-availability of space, which was promptly addressed by the management during the last accreditation exercise. The management comfortably provided a building for the department which allows the department to have a reference room for the use of staff and the students. The reference room serves two purposes in the form of a mini library and taxation laboratory.
The department will be appreciative of the management if he can provide a photocopying machine which will assist in the service delivery of the department. Happy 39th convocation celebration and 40th anniversary
