    A shock to Dibu and a joy to my Prof Isaq Oloyede the jagaban of University of Ilorin. I could remember the old time then back in school when I was still a student of unilorin before graduated virtually everyone including profs and student were so scared of Prof Oloyede. He's so strict and disciplined. Congratulation once again Prof

  3. The best move ever by PMB, Lets hope they'd be a change in the system of Admission into The universities now.. I just hope The new chairman would make great adjustments
