READ ASIWAJU YINKA FASUYI'S REACTION AS GBOYEGA OYETOLA SIGNS ILESA UNIVERSITY BILL INTO LAW



*.T'ani a tun gbega O, Bi ko se Baba l'oke!*

*T'ani a tun fi gbogbo opee awa fun!*

*Olorun t'o da awon oke igbaani!*

*Eyin ni a fii ope awa fun!*


Remember the Professor of Medicine; a former Executive Secretary of National Universities Commission (NUC); a former Vice Chancellor of a Federal University; a former Honourable Minister of Education; a former Honourable Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources; a former President of the Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC); and a former Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Prof Jubril Aminu when he visited the then Oyo State College of Education, Ilesa in 1988, marvelled at the then infrastructural facilities at the College and remarked based on his conviction, thus "THIS IS A UNIVERSITY SITTING IN A COLLEGE" but unfortunately the geographical location of the College could not allow him to politically justify the upgrade of the then College to a University.
