While praising the institution, Sanwo-Olu mentioned that the dismissal of the two lecturers, Dr. Boniface Igbeneghu and Dr. Samuel Omoniyi Oladipo, will serve as a deterrent to members of the school that might have similar tendency and will also redeem the reputation of the university.
“The school has maintained high discipline, as seen in the media reports about two days ago, where lecturers who want to bring down the image and name of the school, were sanctioned.
”The management of the school has been firm in ensuring that nobody is above the law. These are parts of the commendable steps which the school management has taken, to ensure the standards are sustained,” Governor Sanwo-Olu said.
