The Alake and Paramount Ruler of Egbaland, Oba Michael Gbadebo has written to the federal government, protesting plan to close the College of Management Sciences, COLMAS, in the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta. The Vanguard reports.
The letter was sent to President Muhammadu Buhari and his Vice, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo (current Acting President), on May 15, 2017 through Olusegun Williams, member of representing Abeokuta South Federal Constituency in the national assembly.
Recall that the federal government through the minister of education, Adamu Adamu, earlier directed that specialised universities should stop running management courses.
The ruler wrote: “As the Alake and Paramount Ruler of Egbaland, I have been inundated with visitations, protests and all sorts of complaints from stakeholders from the academia, business community, parents, students and other concerned individuals within and outside Ogun state.
“These contacts and interactions with the concerned stakeholders, had enabled me to even feel more worried about the situation which I believe requires a most urgent reversal.’’
