Vice Chancellor of the University of Ilorin, Professor AbdulGaniyu Ambali has canvassed the support of all Nigerians for President Muhammadu Buhari, with a view to addressing challenges facing the country.
The VC stated this during a media interactive session in Ilorin yesterday, noting that with his antecedents, the new president has rekindled hope in Nigerians that the country would soon take its pride of place in the committee of respected nations.”
Ambali also warned Nigerians not to see President Buhari as an island, saying he alone could not correct all the national ills single-handedly.
“The president needs our cooperation. We are the ones that elected him based on his antecedents and we have hope in the coming administration but he can’t do it all alone,” he said.
The UNILORIN helmsman further stressed that “the fact that the president had decided that he would choose his ministers by himself means that he would choose those that have the same dream with him to work with him.”
He, however, dispelled the rumour making the round that a female student of the university was raped to death on campus, saying that the rumour was “baseless, unfounded and far from the truth.”
Prof. Ambali said that although the university recently lost a female student who was a sickle cell patient, her death had no connection with any rape incident.
The vice chancellor pointed out that the death of the lady, who had been hospitalised for some time, only coincided with the period people were peddling rumour about rape cases.
“Let me inform our dear parents and Nigerians through you (the journalists) that there is no iota of truth in the rumour. We have a very robust security system with modern way of policing together with our own traditional outfit. Since we started the synergy between the two we have been getting positive results. So, the rumour is not true.”
He therefore assured that the university had put in place adequate security measures to address related issues through regular advice to students, on the campus radio station and other media outlets, not to walk alone, to be careful of where they go, to restrict their movements within the recreation centres and to stay within the school environment.
