In a press statement signed by Chief Olubunmi Ajibade, the Director of Information and Corporate Affairs of EKSU, the management stated that “there was nothing of that nature, Ajibade said the Pro-Chancellor has been carrying out his assignments assiduously to make the university one of the best in Nigeria”.
Adesina, a senior lawyer and past General Secretary of the Nigerian Bar Association last week presided over the 129th governing council meeting of the university where he gave a report of his one year in office. He was appointed in September 2017 for a four year tenure, after which there could also be re-appointment for another four year tenure.
Since his appointment, the university has witnessed stability and progress in diverse ways.
He was able to secure the long awaited accreditation of the university’s College of Medicine which had hanged for years. He is presently working on investors to build a 30,000 capacity halls of residence for the students, and also linking the university with top rate universities in Europe and United States of America. His handling of union issues based on mutual trust between the union leaders, the university management, and the governing council has ensured a limited disruption of academic activities of the school.
Ajibade said the press statement became necessary so as to “disabuse the minds of unsuspecting members of the public that might have been influenced by the fake rumour”.
