The Osun State Government has clarified that Dr. Folorunso Alakija remains the Chancellor of Osun State University after the dissolution of the Governing Council of the University.
In a statement by Governor’s Spokesperson, Mallam Olawale Rasheed, the State Government opined that the dissolution of the Governing Council does not affect the position of Dr. Alakija who is contributing immensely to the growth and development of the University.
The statement indicates that the position of the Chancellor is not part of the Governing Council and so the dissolution of the Council has nothing to do with the Chancellor.
The Government notes with appreciation the ongoing multiple support from Dr. Alakija to the infrastructural growth of the University as well as her selfless humanitarian and philanthropic assistance to the human, physical and academic development of the university.
