  Oba Oluwole Adebolaju Adugbole III, Oloye of Oye, said, the fate of Nigerian universities is in the hands of the elite. “If the graduands of each school could contribute N10, 000 yearly for the upliftment of their alma mater, it would go a long way to solving most of the problems facing tertiary institutions.”

  Speaking on the new VC, Mimiko, said, “with the experiences Prof. Omole had garnered in the private and public sector as well as the backings of his friends and colleagues, he would surely take the school to its desired height.”

   The governor informed that there are over 33,000 Nigerians studying diverse courses in different universities across the globe and their parents spend over N75 billion yearly on them.
  “ If our schools are what they should be, this huge sum would have contributed to developing our economy. If we must be like other developed economies of the world, then education must be given a pride of place; it is for this reason that I am building mega schools, restructuring the curriculum and paying great attention to ICT,” he said.
