I’m still the VC of UNILAG, says Ogundipe | Nigerian News. Latest Nigeria News. Your online Nigerian Newspaper. f



Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, vice chancellor of the University of Lagos, has asked the public to ignore the announcement of his removal from office.


Earlier on Wednesday, Ogundipe’s removal was announced during a meeting of the varsity’s governing council which was presided over by Wale Babalakin, pro-chancellor and chairman of the council.


The meeting held at the National Universities Commission (NUC) headquarters in Abuja.


However, in response to the announcement via a statement on Wednesday, Ogundipe described it as untrue and a figment of the announcer’s imagination.


“The attention of the University of Lagos (Unilag) management has been drawn to the ‘Notice to the General Public on the Removal of the Vice Chancellor, University of Lagos’; dated August 12, 2020 and signed by Oladejo Azeez, Esq, Registrar and Secretary to Council, stating that the current Vice Chancellor, Professor Oluwatoyin T. Ogundipe, FAS has been removed from office with immediate effect,” the statement read.


“This is untrue and a figment of his imagination.


“Therefore, stakeholders of Unilag and the general public are advised to disregard this mischievous disinformation about the sitting Vice Chancellor of Unilag, contained in that notice.


“Professor Ogundipe still remains Unilag’s Vice Chancellor.”
