He urged the Governing Council to pay close attention to the instructional and curriculum aspect of the University.

“I know that invariably you are bogged down with petitions, governance and infrastructure issues with less space to be engrossed in the teaching and learning process. You should be interested in the quality of the graduates that are coming from your institution. Be interested in whether your graduates are getting or not getting jobs,” he said.
