He thanked the Council of the University of Ibadan, all stakeholder in the UI project, global friends and well-wishers, and every other person, who have in one way or the other, supported him during the ‘long battle’ for the race of the Vice Chancellorship; with an addendum that, ‘not I alone that you supported; rather it was the University of Ibadan, our heritage, that you supported.’

He promised to serve the institution better, and to lead the process of ‘fence mending’ needed for a healthy and robust relationship in the University community.
