First Bank Nigeria
It is no longer news that the prestigious University of Ibadan is in dear need of a Bursar as the highly revered office of the Chief Finance Officer is going to be vacant on the 18th of November 2015.
However, the new Principal Officer who would be responsible to the Vice-Chancellor for the day to day administration and control of the financial affairs of the prestigious University should not be older than 60 years as at the date of possible assumption of office, that is 19th November 2015, according to the requirements published by the institution in a newspaper advert..
The adverts also stated that applicant for the key managerial post must be somebody with vision, proven professional distinction, managerial ability, integrity and transparency in private and public life who should be able to provide the management of the institution with appropriate advise and support for all of the Institution’s financial transactions.
Another prerequisite is that applicant must have a minimum of twenty-one years post-qualification experience in a University or comparable Institution with a minimum of fifteen years cognate  experience after a professional qualification.
But we gathered that crisis is currently brewing in the university as there are  plots to install a less qualified and ineligible candidate for the position of bursar, a development that is currently causing disaffection from the aggrieved parties in the University.
However, our source in the University revealed that the candidate being considered for the position by the management of the school has only five years experience as against the 20 years experience advertised in the newspaper advert.
“Some powerful people in University of Ibadan are plotting to smuggle one of the applicants who has just five years of experience as the bursar, but it will be resisted. This attempt is corruption at its highest order in an ivory tower. University of Ibadan has a standard and we wont allow some people to mess it up.” A highly placed source in the University told our reporter. of 25th March 2015.
