Enters a New Vice Chancellor for Crown-Hill University, Eiyenkorin

On January 23, 2023, the newly appointed Vice Chancellor of Crown-Hill University, Eiyenkorin, Professor Jeleel Olasunkanmi Ojuade assumed duty on Campus with a colorfully organized Official Inauguration as the 3rd Vice Chancellor of the relatively young University. In his maiden address to the staff and students of the University, he pledged to run a ‘student-oriented administration’ and use his connection and wealth of experience to further move the institution to the next level.

In his words of encouragement to his audience that also had visitors and friends of the Vice Chancellor and the University, Professor Ojuade appreciated the Proprietor and Chancellor of the institution, His Imperial Majesty, Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Ojaja II for his unwavering contribution towards the growth and development of education in Nigeria. He also lauded the pioneer efforts of his predecessors for laying a solid foundation upon which he pledged to consolidate.

Specifically, to the students, he had this to say, “…we are acting in your best interests. We shall engage in constructive and productive dialogue and discussions to move the University forward. Your voice will be heard. We shall run an administration that is student-centric. Let me just say that beyond the seeming dark clouds lies silver linings”.

To his predecessors, both the first (pioneer) Vice Chancellor, Professor Olorunmaiye and the second (immediate past) Vice Chancellor, Professor Deboye Kolawole who was at the event, he applauded their pioneering and trail blazing efforts. In his words, “They have succeeded in laying the solid foundations for Crown-Hill University, Eyenkorin. If I stand taller than my contemporaries, it is because I am standing on the shoulders of these great men. I say thank you sirs”.

Professor Ojuade pledged to do everything within his capacity, during his tenure, to move the the University forward and make it a reference point, especially in the areas of teaching, research and community service.
