The Executive Governor of Kwara State, Abdulfatah Ahmed has finally caved in to pressure at an emergency meeting with the Governing Council of the Kwara State University (KWASU) where he directed the authorities to go ahead with its affairs in line with due process.
Report revealed that the Governor had last week approved the appointment of Prof. Kenneth Adeyemi as Acting Vice Chancellor for the university and ordered the incumbent VC, Prof. Abdulrasheed Na’Allah, whose tenure ends in July 27, 2019, to proceed on terminal leave, a development which triggered serious uproar.
Gov. Ahmed’s decision caused disruption in the institution with the student union, university community and stakeholders expressing dismay over the development.
Consequently, the university was closed indefinitely as a result of the heat generated by the Governor’s directive.
However, a statement issued on Monday to newsmen from the university management stated, “All pending issues surrounding the institution’s crisis have been resolved. The Executive Governor of Kwara state and the Visitor to the prestigious university in his wisdom has resolved all the issues causing the crisis.
“More so, he gave a directive to the Governing Board to go ahead with all necessary process as provided in the KWASU Gazatte 2009. Present at the meeting were the outgoing VC, the Commissioner for Tertiary Education, Barr. Abdullahi Alkinla, the Chairman of the Governing Council, Prof. Saka Nuru, Alhaji Kola Yusuf and Hon. Oba Aluko who are both members of the council.”
