“I have no intention to interfere or have any interest in the choice of who would be vice-chancellor. We have put in the committeemen and women of impeccable character that have distinguished themselves and are willing to do for us a good job,” he said.
The Governor also promised to assist the Committee of Vice-Chancellors of Nigerian Universities to get back the title documents of its property situated at Idowu Taylor Street, Victoria Island in Lagos, saying the property would be released to the Committee at no cost.
He said Lagos State Government will support the Committee on its forthcoming 60th-anniversary celebration holding next year.
