In order to find a permanent solution to the problem at the troubled Osun State College of Education, Ila, the panel appointed by Governor Ademola Adeleke will convene on Monday.

In a statement released on Thursday, Olawale Rasheed—who serves as the governor’s spokesperson—made this announcement.

Elder Peter Babalola, who is the chairman of the College Governing Council, had earlier this week suspended Prof. Jimoh Afolabi, the provost of the college, for alleged financial theft, as reported in the Daily Post.

The state government has stepped in to establish a three-man commission to investigate the dispute and provide long-term remedies because of the disagreement.

Head of the panel, Alhaji Kazeem Akinleye, is also the chief of staff to the governor. The panel is worried about how the parties engaged in the situation have handled it so far and has ordered a halt to any further media appearances related to the matter until the assignment is finished.

The statement claims that the government is worried about the harm done to the college’s integrity and image, in addition to the undue personal insults caused by the media appearance.

The panel wants to reassure the public that it would be fair and firm in its assignment before Monday’s meeting. The committee restated the governor’s order that “no sacred cow scenario” and “no cover-up” would be tolerated.

The public can be confident that the panel will report anyone found guilty to the proper authorities for punishment, according to the statement.
