Nigeria.”

policies’.

The statement also emphasized that “as a patriotic citizen of this great country, there is need for genuine interest in the affairs of the nation towards positive economic drive thereby necessitating the need to always pray for the people at the helms of affairs. Let us

“The current political and economic situation in Nigeria requires nothing but genuine concern from patriotic citizens irrespective of political, tribal or ethnic affiliations. There is an urgent need to shun hate/bias advocacy as well as campaign of calumny to furtherenhance the desired peaceful co-existence of the entire citizenry.”

The group however expressed its passage of ‘Vote of Confidence’ on the
leadership of Professor Abdulganiyu Ambali as the Vice Chancellor of the University of Ilorin stressing that his tenure in office has so far been monumental.

It further condemned some groups and their co-travelers trying to distract his attention from striving towards sustaining the leadership status of UNILORIN among the league of varsities in the country to desist from such dastard acts capable of truncating the much enjoyed peace and harmony on the campus.
“Ilorin is a peaceful community and UNILORIN is an epitome and symbol
of the unity in diversity for the entire Nigerians. The institution should not be draw back to the politics of yesteryears which cannot transform the neither institution nor the workforce towards positive and prosperous direction”, the statement added.
