Members of the University of Lagos visitation panel have been in a closed-door meeting since 10 am.
The panel, which is chaired by Prof Tukur Sa’ad, has two weeks to submit its report over the purported removal of Prof. Oluwatoyin Ogundipe as the Vice-Chancellor of the university.
As at press time, 21 stakeholders of UNILAG have dropped memoranda into the brown wooden box provided in front of the Council Chambers.
A police van with about five policemen from Campus Patrol Sabo Division was staged at the entrance of the Council Chambers.
A letter signed by the Secretary to the Panel, Mrs Grace Ekanem, had on Thursday requested that memoranda be submitted to the panel on or before 2 pm on Monday at the Council Chambers of the University.
The Federal Government last week directed the varsity’s Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of Council, Wale Babalakin, and Ogundipe to recuse themselves from official duties, pending the outcome of the Special Visitation Panel set up by the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.).
FG also asked the university’s senate to appoint an acting VC. Prof. Folasade Ogunsola was nominated as the acting VC of UNILAG at an emergency senate meeting last Monday and confirmed by the Governing Council on Tuesday in a virtual meeting led by the acting chairman, Dr. John Momoh.
