University of Lagos

Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari, on Friday constituted a Visitation Panel to look into the crisis in the university of Lagos.

The President took the following additional decisions:

1. The Panel is to submit its report within two weeks.

2. The Pro-Chancellor, Dr Wale Babalakin, SAN and the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, have been suspended from office as they are both to recuse themselves from performing their functions in office during the period of the Visitation.

3. The Senate is to convene urgently and appoint an Acting Vice-Chancellor for the university.
With this decision, the President has sacked the Acting Vice-Chancellor purportedly appointed by the Babalakin-led Council.
