A statement signed by the College’s Public Relations Officer, Mr. Sola Samuel Ojewole further described the news as misleading, baseless, unsubstantiated and fallacious, adding that it may have political undertone to tarnish the good image of the College and belittle Governor Seyi Makinde, the visitor to the College, who is adjudged the best performing Governor in the whole of South West.
The Statement strongly warned private radio stations to desist from being used by oppositions, looking for unreliable loopholes to run down the government of the day trying it’s best to move the state forward.
It would be recalled that the said Private Station has been granted interview by the College for over three hours and the matter was extensively and exhaustively discussed to their satisfaction.

The statement pointed out that fourteen (14) different academic programs are being offered by Oyo State College of Health Science and Technology, Eleyele-Ibadan and each of them is accredited by the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) and licensed by appropriate professional regulatory Bodies
The statement advised any student having issues with the college to go to appropriate quarters to seek redress and avoid being used by the opposition through any Private Radio Station seeking relevance unprofessionally in the 21st Century
