Ekiti State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi, has lifted the suspension order on the Provost, College of Health Sciences and Technology, Ijero Ekiti, Dr Olajumoke Adebayo.
The recall followed the report of the probe panel constituted by the governor to look into the remote and immediate causes of the fumigation exercise carried in the school by men of the Federal Fire Service which resulted in hospitalisation of some students in May.
Adebayo lauded Fayemi and the Professor Kehinde Oluwadiya-led Governing Council of the institution for her reinstatement 10 weeks after the fumigation exercise, which disrupted smooth running of activities in the college.
She also restated “commitment to improvement in the academic quality in the college and realisation of the much-desired plan to upgrade the institution to a polytechnic.”
The provost, according to a statement by the Public Relations Officer, Enoch Akintayo, titled, ‘COHESTI provost lauds Fayemi, governing council, restates commitment to proposed upgrade to polytechnic status, improved academic standard, increase in IGR’, spoke during a meeting at the school.
Adebayo lauded the college’s Affiliate Committee for efforts towards increasing the institution’s internally generated revenue with a view to making it self-sustaining.
