The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Lagos (UNILAG), Prof Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, has been removed by the school’s governing council following accusations of financial impropriety and gross misconduct.
The council through its media adviser, Mr Mikhail Mumuni, said Mr Ogundipe was removed at a meeting held on Wednesday at the headquarters of the National Universities Commission (NUC), Abuja.
In attendance were 11 of the 12 council members, the VC included, majority of whom voted for the removal of Mr Ogundipe.
He noted that further information will be provided by the office of the registrar of the institution in due time.
The conflict between the university’s governing council and the management reached a head in March when its week-long 2020 convocation was abruptly cancelled just before it started.
The cancellation was ordered by the Nigerian universities’ regulatory body in response to a directive by the Minister of Education, Mr Adamu Adamu.
Mr Adamu gave the directive in response to a letter written to the Vice-Chancellor by the council chairman, accusing Mr Ogundipe of failing to share important details about the ceremony with the council.
The university has since mailed copies of notification of results electronically to the affected graduands in view of the ceremony.
An acting Vice-Chancellor is expected to be announced soon by the Chairman of the governing council, Mr Wale Babalakin.
