The Vice-chancellor of the University of Lagos (UNILAG), Professor Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, has been allegedly sacked by the school’s governing council on Wednesday, August 12.

The alleged sack was announced at a meeting of the Governing Council of the UNILAG held at the National Universities Commission (NUC) in Abuja. The university’s pro-chancellor and chairman of the council, Wale Babalakin (SAN) presided the meeting.

Seven members voted for the removal of Professor Oluwatoyin while four voted against it while one of the members voted that he should rather be placed on suspension.

According to PremiumTimes, Professor Oluwatoyin was accused of financial impropriety and gross misconduct. This comes after a suspected conflict between the university’s governing council and the management which led to cancelation of the institution’s week-long convocation scheduled for March. The cancellation was ordered by the Nigerian Universities Commission (NUC) in response to the directive of the education minister, Adamu Adamu.

Adamu gave the directive after receiving a letter written to the vice-chancellor by the council chairman, accusing Ogundipe of failing to share important details about the ceremony with the council.
