Newly appointed Vice Chancellor of the University of Ilorin, Kwara State, Professor Wahab Egbewole, SAN, has promised that his administration will be fair to all Unilorites.
The professor of international law and jurisprudence said his incoming administration will be fair to all in its dealings and fair in all circumstances.
A statement released on Sunday in Ilorin by the University’s Director of Corporate Affairs, Mr. Kunle Akogun, quoted the newly appointed Vice-Chancellor as saying that “the University of Ilorin is bigger than all of us, and we want to extend our hands of fellowship to all our colleagues who have also applied for this position.”
He appealed to them to join hands with the incoming administration to do the job collectively and in an all-encompassing manner.
Professor Egbewole commended the University Governing Council “for carrying out a very thorough and meticulous exercise” that resulted in his appointment and assured the Council and the University community “that this appointment is for all of us as we will continue to put the University first to put in all our enterprises.”
He therefore appealed for the unwavering support of all Unilorites “in carrying out the difficult tasks ahead.”
Prof. Egbewole said, “Our students are our pride, and we will continue to operate a student-friendly regime with emphasis on improved work ethics and zero tolerance for corruption in all its ramifications.
“We pay tribute to the workers of this great University for their tireless efforts to ensure that our system continues to operate despite the challenges.
“We will continue to give premium to the training and retraining of the workforce while the welfare of the workers will be given priority.
“Our efforts to improve the quality of research will lead to some innovations in that regard, and we appeal to the relevant staff to see us as partners in the process with a view to ensuring improved capacity and improved delivery .
“We want to appreciate the Vice-Chancellor Prof. Sulyman Age Abdulkareem and pray for a peaceful transition to move our University to the next level.”
