“I want to pledge before this august audience and the council, she hasn’t told me what she wants to do but whatever she tells me, she can consider it done.

“If she wants to go into housemanship, residency or even a PhD in medicine, we will support her. It is very important to us that we restore the values for which we are known in Ekiti.

“We are not a state of stomach infrastructure. We are the centre of excellence in this country and when it comes to intellectual capital, we really should restore our very first place and that’s what the government in Ekiti is about.

“It is about promoting the knowledge economy and celebrating the very best of us who have a lot to teach the rest of us because I know medicine is not a tea party. For her to have impressed all of her lecturers and broke all of the records here which excellent people have set here, I hope the college will retain Aarinola. Having produced her, it is only fair to let Ife have her, Fayemi said.
