The Governing Council of the University of Lagos has confirmed the removal of the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Oluwatoyin Ogundipe from office.
In a memo signed by the Registrar and Secretary to Council, Mr. Oladejo Azeez (Esq.) titled “Notice to the General Public on the removal of the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Lagos” obtained by Nelsdaily, the decision was based on “Council’s investigation of serious acts wrongdoing, gross misconduct, financial recklessness and abuse of office against Professor Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, FAS”.
This is an aftermath of an emergency meeting held by the Council which had in attendance the Pro-Chancellor of the institution, Dr Wale Babalakin, the VC as well as Council members on Wednesday in Abuja.
However the Vice Chancellor has replied the said memo stating categorically that it is untrue and a figment of his (The Registrar’s) imagination.
He thereby advised stakeholders of the institution and the general public to disregard what he called “mischievous disinformation”.
