President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the appointment of John Momoh as the Interim Chairman of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) Governing Council.
John Momoh is the President of UNILAG Alumni Association Worldwide.
In his new role, Mr Momoh is expected to coordinate the affairs of the institution, as a representative of the federal government.
His first task will be to ratify the election of new Acting Vice-Chancellor, Professor Folashade Ogunsola.
Reacting to the appointment of Professor Ogunsola as acting Vice Chancellor, UNILAG ASUU President, Dr Dele Ashiru commended the federal government’s intervention.
Mr Ashiru appealed to the university community to support the new acting Vice chancellor in the discharge of her duties.
Recall that President Buhari had last week asked the embattled and sacked Vice-Chancellor UNILAG, Prof. Toyin Ogundipe to step aside.
Buhari also directed the Pro-Chancellor of the institution, Dr. Wale Babalakin to recuse himself from official duties.
