He says it would have been a wise thought for Kogi Governor to handpick one out of the twelve Igala Professors that vied for the Vice Chancellor of Federal University Lokoja, as pioneer VC Custech to bring a little balance to the state, rather the Governor still went for his kinsman despite the fact that the VC of Kogi State University is an Ebira.
He says the people of the State are not unaware of recent appointments both at the State and Federal levels that favour only the Ebiras, leaving the Igala race relegated and grossly marginalised,this action is capable of creating ethnic disharmony.
Similarly, Comrade Okai puts it to the Governor that there are several complaints from the various Ministries, Departments and Agencies as well Parastatals,as Senior Igala, Bassa and other civil servants of another ethnic backgrounds are being relegated, demoted and replaced by their colleagues from Ebira junior counterparts.
He warns that this a very bad leadership precedents being set by the Governor.
Furthermore, while congratulating and wishing the newly appointed Vice Chancellor of Federal University Lokoja a successful tenure, Comrade Okai berates the role Governor Bello played in the disqualification of the 12 Igala Professors and the whole process.
This is coming at a time the Igala where crying of being marginalized and sidelined, the Govenor who was expected to manage the situation rather than taken the glory of disqualification of igala professors.
Professor Olayemi Akinwumi is the new and third Vice-Chancellor of the Federal University Lokoja, he urged him to carry every one along, including those who contested against in the race for the top position in that institution.
