Oyo State University, Fresh Hopes

The executive governor of Oyo State, Abiola Ajimobi, during a town hall meeting held recently in Saaki, Oyo State, has reassured the citizens of the state that have been clamoring for a state university that their wishes will soon become a reality.

The governor made it clear that strategic locations throughout the state will get campuses of the institution situated in them when the university finally kicks off. This is a development that has been long due. The current government in the state once said that the university will become a reality before the end of this year. We hope this promise will not be reneged upon.

However, the governor has told the people of Oyo State that they should bear it in mind that this will not be an easy task, especially cost-wise, as it will be costing money in the neighborhood of 5 billion naira to make this kind of project materialize.

We wish the citizens of Oyo State luck as they continue to wait – not much longer, we hope – for their long-awaited university. The Main campus of the institution, when eventually founded, will be located in Ibadan, the governor said.


  1. My sincere advice to Governor Ajumobi is to spread his development programme including the main campus of Oyo State University and not to concentrate the development only in the capital city. This is to give sense of belonging and spread development around the state. There is also the need to plan the city and even the various towns in the state, the way Abuja is planned. There is also the need to use Ikere Gorge to generate power to boost the power and industrialise the state. God bless the Governor, God bless Oyo state and Nigeria. Amen.

  2. Oyo state university will be a great proud of oyo state, all dese is wot will ar clamourg 4. So oh people of oyo state lets join hands 2geda and pray ahead 4 success is dis project. Great oyo state.
