The Chief Press Secretary (CPS) to the governor, Mr Yinka Oyebode, stated this in a statement he released to journalists in Ado-Ekiti.

According to the statement, the most senior officials are to take over the running of the institutions pending the appointment of substantive heads.

He said that in the case of EKSU, the Deputy Vice- Chancellor (Academics), Prof (Mrs) Olubunmi Ajayi, should  take charge in an acting capacity.

He said this would be  pending the appointment of a substantive Vice-Chancellor by the institution’s Governing Council.

The CPS  said the governor had  also approved the appointment of Mrs Folakemi Falore as the Sole Administrator for the College of Health Sciences and Technology, Ijero-Ekiti.

“As approved by the State Executive Council, the Governing Councils’ immediate task is the implementation of the approved recommendations of the White Paper.
