President Muhammadu Buhari has reinstated Oluwatoyin Ogundipe as the vice-chancellor of the University of Lagos (UNILAG).
This was contained in a statement from the Ministry of Education’s Director Press and Public Relations, Ben-Bem Goong, on Wednesday.
“The removal of Professor Oluwatoyin T. Ogundipe as the Vice-Chancellor did not follow due process,” Goong said quoting Buhari.
“Mr. President after careful review of the report has approved all the recommendations of the Panel. Accordingly: Professor Oluwatoyin Ogundipe is hereby reinstated as the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Lagos.”
Buhari, according to Goong, also dissolved the UNILAG governing council led by Dr. B. O. Babalakin.
“Mr. President hopes these steps will bring peace, stability, focus and direction to the University,” Goong said.
