The Governor of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi, has told pro-chancellors that the people appointed as vice-chancellors must speak truth to power.
Governor Fayemi said this in a statement by the spokesman of the Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF), Abdulrazaque Bello-Barkindo, on Thursday, March 11. According to the statement, the governor spoke at a meeting with pro-chancellors of state-owned universities in Abuja while deliberating the challenges faced by the schools.
Governor Fayemi said, “They need to be able to bite the bullet, and not just be a yes person. We need to work together to confront these issues. We are running glorified secondary schools as universities by this system and you have to help us in insisting that the institutions too, do the right thing.”
