Professor Theophilus Soyombo has been announced the University of Lagos, UNILAG acting Vice Chancellor, VC by council.
On Thursday, the Governing Council of Lagos University confirmed Prof Theophilus Soyombo as the institution’s acting vice-chancellor.
A release by the Council’s Registrar / Secretary, Oladejo Azeez, said the Council made the appointment at a meeting in Abuja early Thursday hours.
The declaration urged the public to ignore Professor Oluwatoyin Ogundipe ‘s argument that he remains UNILAG ‘s substantive vice chancellor.
Note that the Council, led by Dr Wale Babalakin, SAN, dismissed Ogundipe as the school’s VC on Wednesday.
The development was the result of the faceoff between Babalakin and Ogundipe that led to the chapter of the university’s academic staff union, ASUU, labeling Babalakin an unwelcome visitor to the university.
The situation stopped the Council from sitting on the campus of Unilag and had to move its sitting to Abuja.
