Several months after President Muhammadu Buhari sacked University of Lagos Governing Council Chair, Dr. Wale Babalakin (SAN), he has reinstated Prof. Oluwatoyin Ogundipe as the Vice-Chancellor with immediate effect.
Persecondnews had reported that in the aftermath of the crisis, Buhari instituted a visitation panel.
On Wednesday the government said following the report of the presidential visitation panel: “The removal of Professor Oluwatoyin T. Ogundipe as the Vice-Chancellor did not follow due process.”
“Mr. President after careful review of the report has approved all the recommendations of the Panel. Accordingly: Professor Oluwatoyin Ogundipe is hereby reinstated as the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Lagos.”
A statement by the spokesman for the Federal Ministry of Education, Mr Ben-Bem Goong said Buhari has also dissolved the UNILAG Governing Council.
“Mr. President hopes these steps will bring peace, stability, focus and direction to the University,” it said.
