In the interview, whilst addressing some issues on campus, Professor Olalekan Aransi stated that the welfarism of students would remain paramount in his heart during his tenure, in his words, ‘‘I will discharge my duty and ensure that welfarism of students takes my number one agenda because if the student are in good condition, there won't be break or strike and good products will be produced along the line as supports will be sought for from far and near for the embracement‘’. He also disclosed the support of the Alumni association of the university to give some materials to students.

While taking about the need for cordial relationship between the DSA, the management and the students’ union, the new Dean stated that he has met with the suspended president of the Union and his cabinet and they promised​ to give support to the administration to foster peace in the university community.

Talking about student security and the frequent attacks​, Professor Aransi promised​ to look into this amidst other issues as reports were filed, cases upon cases, and proper consultation has been indicted with the security unit of the university to put an end to the frequent occurrences​.

Whilst talking about the allocation of rooms to finalists and fresh students, he pledged to do justice to it as the university management needed to look into the number of students admitted yearly.
