Excited UI Workers Fry Akara To Celebrate VC’s Exit

As Prof. Idowu Olayinka finished his five-year tenure as the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Ibadan (UI), excited staff have embarked on different activities which includes frying of Akara and sweeping of the institution to show how relieved they feel as his tenure is over

Workers of the institution embarked on several activities which suggested they were relieved by the exit of the VC who had completed his five year tenure.

According to OyoInsight, workers of the institution kicked off celebrations with a Thanksgiving before proceeding to the VC’s office at the Tekena Tamuno building where they swept the entire place.

The UI workers then proceeded to the main gate where they swept the entire area extending up to the main road, after which they burnt all the brooms used during the sanitation exercise.

Dramatically, after leaving the road, the joyous workers then fried beans cake commonly known as akara, to mark the auspicious moment.

Olayinka’s five-year tenure as the vice-chancellor of the institution was reportedly fraught with battles with workers union over the running of the institution’s affairs.

The Senate of the University of Ibadan (UI) on Monday elected the institution’s deputy Vice Chancellor, Professor Babatunde Ekanola as Acting Vice Chancellor (VC) of the university.

At a Senate meeting held on Monday morning, Ekanola won with 275 votes to defeat four other nominees.

Ekanola, who is expected to be the institution head for the next six months, will assume office December 1, 2020.
