The new Vice Chancellor of Ajayi Crowther University, Oyo State, Professor Dapo Asaju, has assured that the university’s medical school will begin soon.
Professor Asaju, who made the disclosure during welcome service held in his honour, at the university chapel on Friday, urged a Chief Medical Director friend, who was in attendance, to begin work on the project immediately.
The new VC, accompanied by his wife, said he had been offered the same position five years ago but turned it down, adding that he would do his best in moving the university forward.
“I knew nothing, saw nothing and heard nothing,” he said, adding that he would call a meeting to generate ideas on how to move the university forward.
The Bishop of Crowther Diocese, Reverend Kemi Oduntan, in his sermon, while admonishing the new VC to build on the existing achievements of the immediate-past VC, urged him to use King Solomon’s wisdom.
The ceremony was rounded off by a special prayer in the new VC’s office.
