“FUOYE governing council remains committed to credible, transparent, fair, and just processes; and is open to suggestions and corrections that will help to deliver on this sensitive assignment.

“Both Yahuza and the vice-chancellor, Prof. Kayode Soremekun, wish to appreciate the diligence, steadfastness, commitment, and patriotism of council members and friends of FUOYE.

“Since FUOYE is handling the process of appointing the vice-chancellor for the first time, human errors are bound to occur in what is essentially a learning process.

“The governing council will reconvene on December 17 to discuss the way forward.

“This is to further underscore council’s unflinching resolution to deliver credible, transparent, fair and just process which will result in the emergence of a new vice-chancellor,” Ademuyiwa said.
