While referring to the controversy trailing his statement that “Staffs are his priority,” the Vice Chancellor said “what is the problem with that? Why are you competing with your lecturers?” Prof Olayinka at another discourse re-emphasised his disgust at the controversy when he said “I said staffs are my priority, and so what?”
