Injustice has been done in the past.

I made a statement that I’m going to bring the case before you. I have an assignment and a vision and I’m committed to that vision. I’m not going to relent on that vision but if anything crops up from behind to stop my advance movement, I will deal with it.

Prof Oyewole also said that there was a council meeting just some few days ago and at that council meeting we were surprised that within seven months, we had been able to assess 37 professorial candidates and then we presented them.

I told them that the issue of somebody being assessed for professorial position for one year, two years will not happen in my time.

The management of FUNAAB has also warned that any students found guilty of plagiarism will be expelled from the school.
