Reacting to a report on his encounter with the lecturers at the university on Monday, Sambo said his responses were not properly captured in the Daily Trust report of the event and that he was not expecting the dons to praise the present administration.Sambo said in a statement by his media aide Umar Sani that, “Contrary to the insinuation by your medium, the vice president was aware that he was speaking to an academic community and was not in any way expecting either praise singing or sycophancy, therefore, for your paper to conclude that there is perception of praise singing was a mere misconception.”
