Read the statement forwarded to Senate members of the University below…
It is with great regret that I announce to you that the ProChancellor has had his way in actualising his machinery to remove the Vice-Chancellor. At today’s 12th August 2020, Emergency Meeting of Council in Abuja, Dr Babalakin asked the VC and DVC (DS) to leave the meeting and by a vote of 6 to 4, announced that the Vice-Chancellor has been removed.
Members arise, this is unacceptable. We must defend the Management of the University.
Prof Olukemi Odukoya
Senate Representative in Council.
