The governor of Ekiti state Kayode Fayemi has indicated interest in teaching graduate courses at the University of Ado Ekiti. Speaking in Saturday at the, Fayemi said he that he had begun making plans with the vice chancellor of the university and the Department of Political Science, to make good on the promise he made while campaigning to teach in the institution.
“Apart from occupying the position of the Visitor of this University, I also want to play a more active role,” he said. “Many will recall my campaign promise to teach in the university.”
“I have been in discussion with the school on plans to start a graduate course in my field of Peace and Conflict Studies. So very soon, don’t be surprised if you see me in your class.”
He also spoke on the issue of the university not having enough funds saying the institutions should meet its obligations regardless.
“I am not unaware that the major complaints of public institutions centre on inadequate funding,” he said. “While this is true, it would however be unacceptable to this government should the Ekiti State University be attracted to the temptation of using this as an excuse for failure to meet its obligations as required.”
