Professor Oluwatoyin T. Ogundipe has urged the general public to disregard a notice purportedly announcing his sack as Vice Chancellor by the Governing Council of the institution, saying it was a figment of the imagination of its author.
He dismissed this sack claim via a statement personally signed by Ogundipe and made to Grassroots.ng by a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa.
The statement reads:”Re: Notice to the General Public on the Removal of the Vice Chancellor, University of Lagos by Oladejo Azeez, Esq
“The attention of the University of Lagos (Unilag) management has been drawn to the ‘Notice to the General Public on the Removal of the Vice Chancellor, University of Lagos’; dated August 12, 2020 and signed by Oladejo Azeez, Esq, Registrar and Secretary to Council, stating that the current Vice Chancellor, Professor Oluwatoyin T. Ogundipe, FAS has been removed from office with immediate effect.
“This is untrue and a figment of his imagination. Therefore, stakeholders of Unilag and the general public are advised to disregard this mischievous disinformation about the sitting Vice Chancellor of Unilag, contained in that notice. Professor Ogundipe still remains Unilag’s Vice Chancellor.
