According to a report by The Punch newspaper, Abanikanda  was quoted to have said since 2011 , the state government had not executed capital projects in the university.

The  State University which  has its main campus in Osogbo  with other campuses  in Okuku, Ejigbo, Ikire , Ifetedo and Ipetu Ijesa, the ASSU chairman stressed that nearly all the projects done were either funded by TETFUND or donors .

He said , “Throughout the eight year tenure of former governor Rauf Aregbesola, the state did not fund any capital project in the university. The impression of the then governor was that the university was coping , but the poor students were the ones being made to pay exorbitant fees .”
