Lampung Vice Governor Chusnunia Chalim is concerned about the arrest of the Chancellor of the University of Lampung (Unila) Karomani by the KPK because it happened in the world of education.
The Deputy Governor of Lampung then asked Unila to make improvements to restore public trust after the rector and top officials of the university were arrested by the KPK.

In order to restore public trust to Unila, according to him, corrective steps need to be carried out thoroughly.
"To enter university at Unila, children need a strict selection, something like this (bribery) really hurts us. So this must be a reflection and Unila must clean up thoroughly," he said.
According to him, the University of Lampung has been the pride of the people of Lampung because it has produced many regional leaders. For that, Unila must be able to restore its image by making changes after the rector was arrested by the KPK, tarnishing the world of education.
