President Muhammadu Buhari, as Visitor to the University of Lagos has constituted a Visitation Panel to look into the crisis in the university.
In a news report monitored on NTA Network news at 9pm on Friday August 21, 2020, the President took the following additional decisions:
- The Panel is to submit its report within two weeks.
- The Pro-Chancellor, Dr Wale Babalakin, SAN and the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, have been suspended from office as they are both to recuse themselves from performing their functions in office during the period of the Visitation.
- The Senate is to convene urgently and appoint an Acting Vice-Chancellor for the university.
With this decision, the President has sacked the Acting Vice-Chancellor purportedly appointed by the Babalakin-led Council.
