Prof. Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, whose sack was announced today by the university’s governing council, headed by Wale Babalakin has issued a statement rubbishing his purported removal as the vice chancellor of the university.
The statement reads, Re: ‘Notice to the General Public on the Removal of the vice-chancellor, University of Lagos’; dated August 12, 2020, and signed by Oladejo Azeez, Esq,
The attention of the University of Lagos (Unilag) management has been drawn to the ‘Notice to the General Public on the Removal of the Vice-Chancellor, University of Lagos’; dated August 12, 2020, and signed by Oladejo Azeez, Esq, Registrar and Secretary to Council, stating that the current vice-chancellor, Professor Oluwatoyin T. Ogundipe, FAS has been removed from office with immediate effect.
“This is untrue and a figment of his imagination. Therefore, stakeholders of Unilag and the general public are advised to disregard this mischievous disinformation about the sitting vice-chancellor of Unilag, contained in that notice.
Professor Ogundipe still remains Unilag’s vice-Chancellor.
Professor Oluwatoyin T. Ogundipe, FAS
Vice Chancellor, Unilag
