Education: UNILAG Announces Acting Vice Chancellor


The management of the University of Lagos, UNILAG, has named Professor Theophilus Omololu Soyombo of the Faculty of Social Sciences as the acting the Vice Chancellor of the University.

Recall that the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Olawatoyin Ogundipe, was sacked by the governing council of the institution during a meeting which was presided over by its Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of Council, Dr. Wale Babalakin on Wednesday.

Following the development, Ogundipe in a statement made available to newsmen declared that the council’s decision “is untrue and a figment of its imagination.”

He also insisted that he remains the Vice Chancellor of the University.

However, the council in a statement released on Thursday by its Registrar and Secretary, Esq. Oladejo Azeez maintained that Ogundipe has been removed as the Vice chancellor of the University.

“I also wish to use the opportunity to inform members of the public that Council at the said meeting duly appointed Professor Theophilus Omololu Soyomboof the Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Lagos as Vice Chancellor of the University in an Acting Capacity,” the statement read.
