The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Ilorin, Prof. Sulyman Age Abdulkareem, has assured the entire University community that he would take the University to a greater height in terms of academic advancement, human capital development and provision of necessary infrastructures.

Prof. Abdulkareem stated this last Monday (October 16, 2017), when he addressed the staff of the University, who gathered at the Main Auditorium to usher him into his office amidst jubilation.

He expressed his gratitude at the reception accorded him by the staff members, pledging not to disappoint them but work towards sustaining the successes of his predecessors and building on them to make the University greater.

 “I will not disappoint anyone of you. You can count on my support and I also need your support. I will work for you and I want you to work for the University. Let us mind our business and operate optimally”, Prof. Abdulkareem said.

The Vice-Chancellor added that the money of the University would be judiciously spent, saying that he would never sit on anyone's money for a minute as he pleaded with the staff to be patient with him.

Noting that everyone is important in the place of work no matter the nature of their assignment, Prof. Abdulkareem submitted that anyone who is dedicated to his work would go places in life.

He said, “I want you to operate at whatever level you are. You can be sure that I will treat everyone with utmost respect but I also want you to treat your work with respect. I am afraid of God and I will not use this opportunity I have as Vice-Chancellor to oppress anyone”.

The Vice-Chancellor then proceeded to meet with the staff of the Office of the Vice-Chancellor, where he commended them for the work they have been doing and pleaded for their support to take the University higher.
In his first official meeting with the Principal Officers of the University, Prof. Abdulkareem, who thanked God for helping the university thus far, also noted that the University has been getting better and stronger. He requested for the support of the Principal Officers and expressed optimism that new opportunities have come to develop young minds that will lift the nation.

The Vice-Chancellor also observed that his predecessor, Prof. AbdulGaniyu Ambali (OON), enjoyed very cordial relationship with the management team and appealed to the Principal Officers to extend similar support to him so that he can excel in his new position.

Promising to operate an open door policy, Prof. Adulkareem said that he would welcome constructive criticism and advice from all.

Earlier, the Registrar, Mr. Emmanuel Obafemi, who spoke on behalf of other Principal Officers, pledged to do everything possible to ensure the success of the new administration.
Mr. Obafemi expressed optimism that the University of Ilorin will be better than it was by the end of the five years' tenure of Prof. Abdulkareem's administration.

The Principal Officers that ushered the new Vice-Chancellor into his office included the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic), Prof. N. Y. S. Ijaiya; the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (MS), Prof. A. Y. Abdulkareem; the Registrar, Mr. E. D. Obafemi; the University Librarian, Dr. Issa Abdulwahab and the Bursar, Mr. Saka Abiodun Yusuf.
