Governing Council of the University of Lagos has removed from office the Vice Chancellor of the institution, Prof. Oluwatoyin Ogundipe for financial impropriety and gross misconduct
Media Adviser to the Chairman of Governing Council, Dr. Wale Babalakin, Mikhail Mumuni who confirmed the sack however, declined further comments, saying only the registrar of the university can provide details of the development.
The decision was reportedly taken at the end of a meeting of the council held at the secretariat of the National Universities Commission (NUC), in Abuja, Wednesday.
In attendance were 11 of the 12 council members, majority of whom voted for the removal of the VC.
It will be recalled that the university had fixed an emergency meeting of the council to hold from today through Friday, August 14 at Fraiser Suites, a hotel located at Central Business District, Abuja, but later moved the venue to the NUC headquarters located on Aguiyi Ironsi Way.
Shortly after the commencement of the meeting earlier on Wednesday, Babalakin reportedly appealed to members in attendance to jettison the first four items on the agenda to move straight to the fifth one, which was the approval of the investigative reports set up by the council to audit the university’s expenditure in about 18 months.
