The Coordinator of the students body, Wole Olubanji, said many petitions had been written against the vice chancellor, saying they had enough evidence to substantiate their allegations against him.

They alleged that Prof. Omole administration has earned over N30bn from subventions, more than N1.5bn from school fees, billions of naira from ore-degree program besides funds received from special agencies such as World Bank, TETFUND etc and money from internal sources but refused to provide an enabling and conducive environment for the learning.
