The rift between the University of Lagos (UNILAG) administration and Governing Council deepened on Wednesday with reports the Council had allegedly voted to remove the institution’s Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, from office.
The Nation learnt the Council took the decision during its meeting in Abuja on Wednesday.
The Council Chair, Dr. Wale Babalakin, moved the meeting to Abuja following ASUU’s declaration he should not visit the institution’s campus as he had been declared a persona non grata.
According to a note shared among members of the university community and attributed to those at the meeting, Babalakin said he would announce an Acting VC by 5pm on Wednesday.
