I have read with dismay the online vituperation leveled against a man close to God’s heart. Of course, I ain’t perplexed with the ballistic missiles of defamatory vilification thrown at a man who has brought innovative developmental strides to the more than 40 years old institution.
As a former student of his, I can vouch for his pedigree and integrity. His only crime was to stop the sharp practises and corruption that’s bedeviling the institution – the reason for the incessant attacks on his personality and formidable works he has done.
Although, no man on earth is perfect, but show me a better administrator of OSCOED, past and present, show me a better Leader who has developed the institution greatly. I challenge you to name anyone, both living and dead.
Additionally, it might interest you to know that KK as he is fondly called birthed the idea of transforming the institution from College of Education to a University. He has not only dreamt but have made spirited and progressive efforts alongside notable Ijesa indigenes to actualizing his goals. This will be blind for his traducers to see. They’re hell bent on nailing him.
The allegations of mismanagement of funds and selling of the school properties have not been proven up till this moment. If these allegations are true, I dare them to invite the EFCC, ICPC or DSS to beam their searchlight on the past and present financial activities of the school, with a thorough auditing to that effect.
Propaganda is their way. They are trying hard to truncate his perceived second term bid. Politics is local and propaganda is their modus operandi to weakening him in order to cause him depression and give up race. This can’t work for a man like KK. He is a Lion and has tough skin for inglorious acts like this.
This issue is dead on arrival. Let his vilifers try harder next time.
