BREAKING: UNILAG Gets New Acting Vice Chancellor

1 Mins read

The Senate of the University of Lagos (UNILAG), Akoka, has elected the deputy vice-chancellor in charge of development services, Folasade Ogunsola, as the institution’s acting vice-chancellor.

She is the first female to be so appointed in the history of the institution.

Mrs Ogunsola, a professor of medical microbiology and first child of Nigeria’s first professor of Geography, Akin Mabogunje, was also the first female provost of the university’s college of medicine, Idi-Araba.

She defeated her opponent and a deputy vice-chancellor in charge of management services, Ben Oghojafor, with a wide margin. She scored 135 votes as against Oghojafor’s 31 among the senate members.

A total of 167 professors were accredited for voting while one vote was voided.

This follows President Muhammadu Buhari’s directive on Friday that due process should follow and the Senate should elect an Acting Vice Chancellor as opposed to the Governing Council doing so.

The President also asked the Council-appointed Ag. VC, Prof. Theophilus Soyombo to step down.
