In 1980, Dr. Olusola Saraki told the Senate, then sitting in Lagos, that it was alleged in a story published by the Nigerian Tribune and credited to Dr. Tai Solarin that somebody diverted the sum of N2.8Bilion from the Central Bank of Nigeria account in London into his private account in Midland Bank. That was a huge sum of money at that time. Nigerians were angry. The country became tense. The Students’ Union led by the vibrant University of Ibadan branch organized with others to march on NNPC in Lagos and burn it down. The Executive President, Alhaji Shehu Shagari, promptly appealed to Nigerians and the students to be calm. He set up an Enquiry. Consequently, the students went back home. I was the lawyer for the Government in the N2.8billion Enquiry. I took the opportunity to demand from the Federal Government that a Federal University should be established in Ado-Ekiti. The Government agreed.
