UNILAG ASUU advises FG on appointment of Pro Chancellor

Dr Dele Ashiru, the Chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, Unilag Chapter advised the Federal Government that only persons with interest in public education should be appointed Pro Chancellors.

Ashiru said this in an interview with newsmen in Lagos on Friday, September 18 2020, against the backdrop of resignation of Dr Wale Babalakin, the Pro Chancellor and Chairman of Governing Council of Unilag.

According to the Unilag ASUU Chairman, the departure of the former pro chancellor will pave way for academic stability in the university.

He said that constant interference in the daily affairs of the institution by the pro chancellor had constituted a set-back to the peace and progress enjoyed by the university community.

The unionist said that with the voluntary resignation of Babalakin, the university would begin to regain its lost glory.

His words, “Babalakin should understand that his resignation cannot atone for the many setbacks his activities has caused the institution.

“We are convinced that with the support of all other stakeholders, the institution will bounce back to the path of peace, progress and academic excellence for which the university is renowned”.

Mr. John Momoh, Chief Executive Officer, Channels Television, has since been appointed as acting pro chancellor of the university pending the outcome of the report of the panel.
