UNILAG crisis: Another Council member Adaralegbe resigns

Barely 24 hours after former Council chairman, Dr. Wale Babalakin resigned from his position as Pro-Chancellor, another member of the Unilag Governing Council, Prof. Bayo Adaralegbe also tendered his resignation.

Adaralegbe who works at Babalakin’s Chambers tendered his resignation letter dated September 18, 2020, to the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, entitled, ‘Resignation from the Governing Council of UNILAG’.

He stated that his continued stay would be a dishonour and desecration of his late father, Prof. Adeniji Adaralegbe’s memory.

In the letter, Adaralegbe praised Babalakin’s contributions to the University while accusing the former Vice-chancellor removed by the Babalakin-led Council, Prof. Toyin Ogundipe of threatening to beat him up over alleged falsification of interview results.

Adaralegbe also denied claims that he got his Council role by claiming to be from another state.

He further stated that as a Council member he sought no material benefits from the University.

Adaralegbe is one of the Federal Government appointees on the Council who were staunch supporters of Babalakin.
