The Ekiti State Government has accepted the resignation of Prince Dayo Adeyeye as Chairman, Governing Council of the Ekiti State University, Ado Ekiti (EKSU) and has consequently appointed Dele Adesina as his replacement.
According to a statement signed by the Secretary to the State Government, Dr (Mrs) Modupe Alade, the government thanked Adeyeye for his contributions to the university and wished him well in his future endeavors.
Meanwhile, the appointment of Mr Dele Adesina (SAN) takes immediate effect.
Recall that the former Minister of Works resigned as Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of the Governing Council of the Ekiti State University, Ado Ekiti on Thursday.
When called on telephone, Adeyeye confirmed his resignation but kept mum on why he took the drastic action.
Some pundits were, however, of the opinion that Adeyeye must have preempted the governor, Chief Ayodele Fayose that he may sack him over controversy surrounding the emergence of the governor’s deputy, Prof Kolapo Olusola as the PDP sole governorship candidate for the 2018 election.
