JAC as a body sees this development as a vindication to us, as we have vehemently rejected Prof. Samuel Ogunwale Ogundiran whom we have accused of high-handedness, usurpation of powers of the institution Management, act of extortion, financial recklessness, etc with facts in some of the correspondences sent to Your Excellency. The Council under the chairman was fond of victimizing and intimidating both the staffers and management churning out obnoxious policies and regulations. The chairman would borrow from staff members for personal use and would not pay and any attempt to demand payment would lead to the demotion of such staff. When the tyrannical reign of the Council Chairman was brought to an end, every staffer was happy. By this singular act, Your Excellency has won our hearts the more, as you have acceded to our request on AOP Eruwa.”
