Prof Oluwatoyin Ogundipe has reacted to the termination of his appointment as Vice Chancellor of University of Lagos (UNILAG).
The Herald earlier reported that UNILAG’s Governing council has sacked Ogundipe after seven of 11 members voted his removal as VC.
However, Prof Ogundipe has asked the general public to disregard the information, saying he remains the Vice Chancellor of the institution.
This was contained in a statement released by his legal counsel.
The statement reads:
“Notice to the General Public on the Removal of the Vice Chancellor, University of Lagos by Oladejo Azeez, Esq”
“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.”
