The people of Baruten, kwara north area have expressed ill feelings and great sadness in administration of Mallam Abdulrahaman Abdulrazaq led government of kwara state over recent appointment of Professor Akanbi who they claimed is an Ilorin man as substantive vice chancellor of the state owned university .

In a press statement sent to this medium through Baruten Patriotic Agenda , the people frowned at sudden breaking of gentlemen accords among the three regions of the state by Mallam Abdulrahaman Abdulrazaq .

The statetment signed by the group president secretary and publicity Secretary of the group reads :

"The Baruten Patriotic Agenda (BPA) which remains one of the leading voice in the fight for the freedom of the Baatonum people wish to express our disappointment and sadness to the Kwara State Government ably represented by Governor Abdurahman Abdurazaq over the non confirmation of Professor Mahmud Sakah as the substantive Vice Chancellor of the University, we wish to state categorically that it is unfair and does not represent the gentleman accord of peaceful coexistence and cooperation that the 3 Senatorial zones have adopted over time.

It was only humanly conscientious to have confirmed him or give the position to a Kwara Northerner which would have been fair enough to us.

This recent position of His Excellency only points to the fact that Kwara state haven't really moved away from the days of oppression, fair selection and freedom.

We want HE to carefully reassess his position if possible or rather take heed of the kind of advise he accepts from those who supposedly seem to be his friends.

On a final note, the confirmation of Professor Mahmud as the substantive Vice Chancellor would have greatly encouraged the younger Baatonbibu to know the value and worth of education, being educationally less advantaged as a result of this nature of marginalization over time.
