peace and tranquility during the waiting period when Dr (Mrs) Ayodele
Olaosebikan acted as Rector.

for the growth of an organization.

schedule of duties religiously.

“Thos who are in academic must teach well and must not skip lectures

cannot manage others if you do not manage yourself effectively,”
Olaosebikan added.

The Deputy Rector advised the new Rector to avoid sentiments and take
only actions that he can defend anywhere, any day and any time.

“Please shun hostility, extortion, partisan politics, discrimination
along ethnic, gender and religious divides, we all need each other.
Lets learn from South Korean who shun the three societal cancers.

“Today, South Korean stands very tall among comity of industrialised
nations globally.
