OSOGBO—The governor of Osun State, Mr Rauf Aregbesola, has set up a five-man visitation panel for Osun State University in a bid to find a lasting solution to the lingering leadership crisis at the State University.
The governor, during the setting up of the committee at the Executive Chambers of the Governor’s Office in Osogbo, admonished universities in Nigeria to be problem solvers.
The board of the governing council of the university had recently placed the three principal staff of the university, the Vice Chancellor, the Registrar, and the Bursar on indefinite suspension.
The visitation panel is to be headed by Prof. Adebiyi Daramola, while Prof. Jacob Ladipo, Prof Omotoye Olorode and Mr. Babatunde Adebayo are members with Mrs. Oluwakemi Kolawole, as secretary.
The governor pointed out that the panel shall investigate the basis of the simmering crisis and the misunderstanding between the Management and the Council in the university with a view to finding a lasting solution.
