Governor Fayemi Meets FUOYE Management




Kayode Fayemi, Governor of Ekiti State, has met with the management of the Federal University, Oye-Ekiti (FUOYE).

Naija News understands that the Governor’s meeting with the management of the school is not unconnected to last week’s crisis which led to the death of two students of the institution.

The Governor in his meeting vowed to get to the root of the incident, with a view to ensuring that such does not to reoccur.

While addressing the management of the institution at the Governor’s office in Ado- Ekiti, on Friday, the Governor stated that the crisis might have resulted from a communication gap between students and the school management.

Fayemi in his meeting that he was represented by his Chief of Staff, Hon. Biodun Omoleye, said the unfortunate incident was avoidable if the students had channelled their agitation to the school authority.

Omoleye said the management of the institution could have taken up the matter and appropriately resolved it.

The Governor, however, condoled with the school management and families of the two students that lost their lives in the process.

In his remarks, the FUOYE’s Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Fashina agreed that the ugly incident could have been avoided if the students had not regrouped after the initial demonstration in the morning.

“They shouldn’t have regrouped in the afternoon. It happened outside the University. I was still in the office working. The student Union leaders told the Commissioner of Police that they wanted to do a guided protest,” he said.
