Prof. Sulyman Abdulkareem, the Vice-Chancellor, University of Ilorin (Unilorin), has promised that the institution would strive hard to provide equal treatment to individuals and groups in its admission and appointments.
Abdulkareem made the promise while receiving traditional rulers from Igbomiland as well as members of Executive Council of Omo Ibile Igbomina, who visited him on Wednesday in Ilorin.
The Vice-Chancellor appreciated the visitors for recognising the fact that the university was a public institution which belonged to all.
“There would be no preferential treatment to individuals or groups in terms of admission, appointment or promotion in the institution,’’ he said.
While welcoming advice from members of the team, Abdulkareem said he needed their prayers and support to succeed as the 10th Vice-Chancellor of the university.
Earlier, the National President of Omo Ibile Igbomina, Mr Timothy Adebayo, said the visit was to assure the Vice-Chancellor of the support of all Igbomina people.
Also in his remarks, the Olupo of Ajasse-Ipo, Oba Sikiru Woleola II, advised Abdulkareem to be a good ambassador of Igbomina land in running the affairs of the institution.
