Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has announced the appointment of Professor Olanrewaju Olaniyan as the Vice Chancellor of Emmanuel Alayande University of Education, Oyo.
He made this announcement on Wednesday while receiving the reports from the Chairmen of Ladoke Akintola University Teaching Hospital and the Emmanuel Alayande University of Education Planning and Implementation Committees at the Executive Council Chamber of the Governor’s Office, Secretariat, Agodi, Ibadan, the state capital.
Makinde, while speaking, said that workers of the institution should not entertain any fear as his administration would not sack any staff of the institution.
He appreciated the chairmen of both committees, Professor Juwon Arotiba and Professor Ayodeji Omole and their members for doing good jobs.
“We want to, once again, thank Professor Deji Omole. The journey started before I became the governor of Oyo State. Let me put in proper context what you have had to do to get us to this point.
“However, I know that with the brief discussion I had with the representative of the National Universities Commission (NUC) this morning, we may not be able to sustain that for long. We may also take away the responsibility from the people that are saddled with the task of managing the tertiary institutions in Oyo State,” he said.
