“He has played and he is still playing a lot of significant role towards the development of Kwara State Students. We are very sure that his position as now the SA on Students Affairs will go a long way to bring peace to the society and the generality of the student body.

“We are very much delighted and we commend the government, Comrade Bisi Fakoyode is a father and a guardian to us. He is one who can tell us this or that and we will accept but on this issue of suspension, it more or less an internal issue.
