Governor Fayemi offers to lecture at Ekiti State University

The Governor of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi, has on Saturday offered to teach some post-graduate courses at the Ekiti State University, Ado-Ekiti.

The State Governor made this known at the 17th convocation lecture of the University in Ado-Ekiti.

Gov. Fayemi, who holds doctorate degree in War Studies from the King’s College, University of London, revealed that he has begun discussions with the Vice Chancellor of the university and also with the Department of Political Science on his readiness to impart knowledge to the students.

He said;

“Apart from occupying the position of the Visitor of this University, I also want to play a more active role. 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.”

“I am not unaware that the major complaints of public institutions centre on inadequate funding. 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,” Fayemi added.

Fayemi had earlier lectured at the Police Training College.

The Vice-President of Ghana, Dr. John Mahama, at the event, challenged Nigeria to use its abundant human and natural resources to lead other African countries to economic prosperity.

Hw wil u mark? Together with recording test & exams? I do think u ar not serious as a governor! Arise!

  2. Nigeria is in really mess. Dat’s why anybody can wake up one day and say or do anything he wishes. If he is so much engross wit being a lecturer, why did he contested 4 governor? If he is serious about this, he is now trying to tell us how unserious and uncommitted our so called government officials are. How can he manage the affairs of the entire state including lecturing?

  3. Why not if Gov Fayemi can be part time gov and part time professor/lecturer. That leaves him little time to do what Ibori, Ohakim, Tinubu did as governors – stealing/laundering government money. Pls Gov do not be discouraged. After all what do lecturers do – other than selling hand outs to helpless students.

  4. He is not a serious fellow, Yoruba say” Ofi ete sile onpa lapalapa. No good road no social amenities in Ekiti, Fayemi never think of that. Since is not doing anything in the office. Can Fashola busy man said that. He remove a woman that is doing well in poverty alleviation and replace her with criminal. Foudation of failure.

  6. I really am sick and tired of this man called Fayemi. Your lack of ineptitude on how To run this state and your gross vulnerability in dancing to the gallery with state funds Ȋ̝̊̅§ alarming. After awarding road contracts,streetlights that cost Oni 200 million to complete Ȋ̝̊̅§ costing U̶̲̥̅̊ 897 million.. Fapohunda think twice,jobs ® non existent and U̶̲̥̅̊ want to go lecture effectively reducing available jobs despite being the Governor? U̶̲̥̅̊ must be delusional.
