  1. Wollega university is situated in good atmospher,fertile land,education seeker generation but where mind of changing the community toward dev,t is left behind and every things becoming political,changing all these potentials toward dev,t is expected.

  2. Hi Sir,
    Everything is ok with my University concerning engagements in learning, research and community services. But keeping the previous rank (1st) from the second generation is a must, rather the University should strive to bring its status to the 1st generation Universities. My second issue is concerning “Horro breed Cattle and Sheep” patent right registration. You know the case of Ethiopian ‘tef’, that Netherlands has ruled two Dutch patents for processing teff. After this thing was happened, the Ethiopian Government take the issue to the Court in The Hague, but the conflict about the Dutch patents has now ended with the verdict of the District Court in The Hague and patents are invalid. Such type problem raised because of negligence to have a patent right for all the endogenous resources of the country. This problem may also happen with the other endogenous genetic resources of the country. Remember also about ‘Anchote’ (Coccinia abyssinica), a unique specific root crop to Wollega. The other thing what I want to remined is, I want to see WU’s Senate Legislation as to other Ethiopian Universities, which are open to read online, even to download it. Thank in advance to take this issues to WU Senate.
