The Governing Council of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) has approved the election Professor Folasade Ogunsola as Acting Vice Chancellor of the university.
The university has been in crisis since the sacking of the Vice Chancellor, Oluwatoyin Ogundipe by the Wale Babalakin led Governing Council.
President Muhammadu Buhari would later suspend both Babalakin and Ogundipe, appointing John Momoh as acting chairman of the Governing Council and asking the senate of the University to appoint an acting Vice-Chancellor.
The senate on Monday elected Ogunsola as acting VC and on Tuesday, August 25, 2020, the Council, sitting in an emergency meeting after Momoh’s appointment ratified her election as acting VC.
The meeting which was held virtually was the first to be chaired by Momoh, who is also the chairman and chief executive of Channels Television.
