Public Relations Officer of the university, Toba Adaramola, said the programme was initiated in 2020 as part of the university’s plan to prepare students for leadership positions.
He said Odusanya came second among the 10 students that participated in the examinations for the selection while Adeyemo came third. “He has the privilege to run the university for one day.
The ‘breakfast hall’ he commissioned was an initiative of the second one-day vice chancellor in 2021.
