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.
“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.
