Vanguard reported that some vice-chancellors of several universities who did not want to be named insisted that the institutions were ready for academic activities.

The vice-chancellors of the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, Prof. Felix Salako, openly disagreed with ASUU’s position.

Salako said:

“It is also glaring even to the blinds that FUNAAB management kick-started the second round of fumigation of every nook and cranny of the university, including unions secretariat, two weeks ago.”
