By Kaosara Olayemi Oladimeji
Kwara State University, KWASU, Malete has distanced itself from the banner held up by the KWASU branch of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) at the solidarity march for the Nigerian Labour Congress, NLC, on Tuesday.
The KWASU management urged the public to dismiss the opinions expressed in the banner.
The directive was contained in a statement signed and released by the institution’s registrar, Dr. (Mrs.) Wasilat Sallee.
“The views expressed in the banner do not represent the views of KWASU Management and should be disregarded.
“The University, since inception, has enjoyed the support and goodwill of its proprietor, the Kwara State Government. The University has many capital projects undertaken by the Government.
“Recently, the Government under the able leadership of Alhaji AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq committed huge funds to the completion of the Osi and Ilesa Baruba campuses of the University.
“The University has also been assured of intervention funds once the dwindling finances of the Government improve.
“The University appreciates all these gestures of the Kwara State Government and will continue to support the efforts of the Government in positioning the University for local and international competitiveness” the statement read.
