ASUU Condemns Unilag Vice Chancellor’s “Purported Removal”

The Academic Staff Union of Universities, University of Lagos branch, has condemned the “purported removal” of the institution’s Vice-Chancellor, Professor Toyin Ogundipe.

The Chairman of the union, Dr Dele Ashiru, said the Chairman of the Governing Council, Dr Wale Babalakin, was behind the plot.

Ashiru said, “His removal is illegal and uncalled for. Our union condemns in the strongest term the purported removal. It is the machination of the pro-chancellor to destabilise this university.

“We reaffirm our confidence in the leadership of Professor Toyin Ogindipe as Vice-Chancellor of the university.”

The UNILAG management and the governing council have been embroiled in a tussle which led to the postponement of the varsity’s convocation.

On Wednesday, it was reported that Ogundipe was removed after a meeting of the governing council in Abuja.

The varsity’s Registrar, Azeez Oladejo, signed a statement confirming the development.
