UNILAG governing council confirms Ogunsola acting VC

University of Lagos Governing Council, led by the interim chairman, Dr John Momoh, has confirmed Prof. Folasade Ogunsola as the acting Vice-Chancellor of the institution.

The Governing Council at a virtual meeting on Tuesday approved her nomination.

The inauguration of the visitor’s panel will hold in Abuja on Wednesday.

There was jubilation at UNILAG on Monday when she emerged the acting VC at the emergency Senate meeting.

The Federal Government had, last week, asked UNILAG Senate to reconvene and nominate an acting VC following the crisis between the varsity’s Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of Council, Wale Babalakin, and Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Oluwatoyin Ogundipe.

The FG also asked Babalakin and Ogundipe to recuse themselves from official duties, pending the outcome of the Special Visitation Panel set up by the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.).

With her emergence, Ogunsola broke UNILAG’s 58-year record by becoming the first female to be appointed as an acting VC of the institution since it was founded in 1962
