This was contained in a statement released by the school’s Head of Public Relations, Williams Olufunmi.

He noted that the university employs no fewer than 500 indigenes of Ondo alongside others around the world, adding that they contribute substantially to the socio-economic growth of the state.

The Vice-Chancellor said he was in the office of the governor to inform him of his assumption of office as the fourth Vice-Chancellor of Elizade University and to sympathise with him over the demise of his predecessor.

Ijadunola also visited the Alara of Ilara-Mokin, Oba Abiodun Aderemi Adefehinti, and the Deji of Akure, Oba Aladetoyinbo Aladelusi.
