Momoh-led UNILAG Council confirms Ogunsola as Acting VC
Prof Folasade Ogunsola has been confirmed as the acting Vice Chancellor of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) by the Governing Council led by the newly appointed acting chairman, Dr John Momoh.
The confirmation took place during the council’s virtual meeting on Tuesday.
With this, Prof Ogunsola broke UNILAG’s 58-year record by becoming the first female to be appointed as an acting VC of the institution since it was founded in 1962
The University Senate had nominated the university don during its meeting on Monday where she defeated her opponent.
With her approval, the inauguration of the visitation panel will hold in Abuja on Wednesday.
The Federal Government had, last week, asked UNILAG Senate to reconvene and nominate an acting VC following the crisis between the varsity’s Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of Council, Wale Babalakin, and Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Oluwatoyin Ogundipe.
Both Babalakin and Ogundipe were accordingly asked to recuse themselves from official duties, pending the outcome of the Special Visitation Panel set up by the President Muhammadu Buhari.
