How UNILAG Suspended VC, Ogundipe Was Reinstated 


iexclusive News Nigeria reports that the suspended Vice-Chancellor of the University of Lagos, Prof Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, has been reinstated by the Federal Government.


His reinstatement as the Vice-Chancellor of UNILAG followed President Muhammadu Buhari’s approval of Report of the Special Visitation Panel to the institution.


The Director, Press and Public Relations, Ben-Bem Goong on Wednesday said the findings of the panel showed that the removal of Professor Oluwatoyin T. Ogundipe as the Vice Chancellor did not follow due process.


Prof. Ogundipe was not granted an opportunity to defend himself on the allegations upon which his removal was based.


The statement read in part, “All allegations made against the Vice Chancellor and the management of the University before and after the Constitution of the Special Visitation Panel should be referred to regular Visitation Panel for thorough investigation and necessary recommendations.


“The process adopted by the Council in the appointment of Professor Omololu Soyombo as Acting Vice-Chancellor of the University was inconsistent with the provisions of the Law relating to the appointment of an Acting Vice-Chancellor.


“The Governing Council of the University of Lagos Chaired by Dr. B. O. Babalakin is hereby dissolved.”
