UNILAG appoints Prof. Theophilus Soyombo as the acting Vice-Chancellor.

The rumble in the Ivory Tower called University of Lagos further deepened as the Governing Council in the wee hours of Thursday announced the appointment of Prof. Theophilus Soyombo as the acting Vice-Chancellor of the institution.

The announcement was contained in a statement issued at 12:05 am on Thursday by the Registrar and Secretary to the Council, Oladejo Azeez.

He said he made the announcement in his capacity as the Registrar and Secretary to Council, the only custodian of the minute of the council and the authorizing officer on behalf of the council to issue official statements pertaining to all council affairs.

He advised the public to totally disregard the statement attributed to Professor Oluwatoyin Ogundipe denying his removal.

The statement reads, “Members of the public are hereby advised to totally disregard the statement attributed to the said former vice-chancellor. The position remains that he was lawfully removed by the Governing Council at a meeting fully attended by all Council members.

“I also wish to use the opportunity to inform members of the public that Council at the said meeting duly appointed Professor Theophilus Omololu Soyombo of the Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Lagos as Vice-Chancellor of the university in an acting capacity.”

The vice chancellor was removed by the governing council at an emergency meeting that took place in Abuja on Wednesday.

However, Ogundipe issued another statement saying he remained the vice chancellor and asked the public to ignore the statement on his purported removal.
