He criticized the abuse of authority and positions to take advantage of public resources for private benefit and pushed for a change in strategy to use opportunities for public service to make significant contributions to institutional growth.

He acknowledged the worrisome nature of these issues and expressed hope that, given time, there will be a concerted effort to address and overcome these challenges with a more focused trajectory.

He said in an interview with Channels TV, ”What we hear is the prevailing corruption in the sphere of governance. And many of it is already coming out. There is a lot of it that has been said and is not out in the public domain I can tell you for example now that, the President approved funds for Universities but some people are trying to arm-twist the VCs. It is terrible.
