Following the news of the abrupt dismissal of the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Lagos, Professor Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, has released a statement signed by the Vice-Chancellor himself to debunk the news.
Read the statement below
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.
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.
Professor Oluwatoyin T. Ogundipe, FAS
