  1. I don’t know but his sacking is related to the recent cult clashes then Wike is wrong.

    These problems are not in anyway created by the vice Chancellor but has been inherited years long.

    You can’t just give matching order to what u one time are part of or knows it existed like obasanjo did in 1999 (Emerole 1999)

    Even the new vc can’t stop it because the problem is fundamental.
