The Senate of the University of Lagos has elected Prof. Folasade Ogunsola as new acting Vice Chancellor.

The Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Development Services) polled 135 votes compared to Prof. Ben Oghojafo’s 31 votes. It was gathered one vote was declared void.

A total of 167 Professors were at the Senate meeting.

Oghojafor is the Deputy Vice-Chancellor Management service.

Ogunsola was the first woman to be the provost college of medicine university of Lagos before she became DVC.

Recall that the federal government had last week directed Wale Babalakin, pro-chancellor and chairman, governing council of the University of Lagos, to recuse himself from official duties relating to the institution following the crisis.

The embattled suspended V.C, Prof. Oluwatoyin Ogundipe was also directed to recuse himself as vice-chancellor, adding that a panel has been set up to probe the crisis rocking UNILAG.

The governing council had removed Ogundipe over alleged financial misappropriation and abuse of office.

But Ogundipe kicked against his removal, saying due process was not followed. He had filed a lawsuit at the national industrial court to challenge his removal.

But on Friday, Ogundipe withdrew the suit which had as defendants: UNILAG, Babalakin, UNILAG senate; Oladejo Azeez, the institution’s registrar; and Theophilus Soyombo, the acting VC.
