Few days after it was shut down due to controversy surrounding the appointment of an Acting Vice Chancellor, the Kwara State University (KWASU), Malete, has been reopened.
The Kwara State Government had on the 27th of May, 2019 announced the appointment of Kenneth Adeyemi as the Acting VC of the university while the tenure of the incumbent VC, Prof. Na’Allah was yet to end.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) report that the VC has advised the staff and students of the university to take their minds off the crisis and be focused on achieving KWASU’s world-class ambitions.
Meanwhile, the VC, in his statement with NAN, said though the calendar of the institution has been slightly altered, its annual convocation would still hold on the 8th of June, 2019.
“The university calendar has been slightly revised, but the 2019 convocation is still June 8, 2019. This year’s convocation will be done at the brand new indoor sports hall, with enough seating capacity for guests.
“I know you all share in the excitement that the 2019 convocation will combine with a 10 year anniversary of your great university,” the VC stated.
