The reinstated Vice Chancellor of the University of Lagos, Professor Oluwatoyin Ogundipe has resumed duty.
Addressing staff and students at his office on Thursday, Professor Ogundipe thanked them for their support and promised to continue the good work that will make the institution an envy of all.
Professor Ogundipe resumed on Thursday after President Muhammadu Buhari approved the recommendations of the Special Visitation Panel set up to investigate the leadership crisis in the university.
The Presidency disclosed this in a social media statement on Tuesday.
The Presidency said the order to sack the VC failed to follow due process and ordered his reinstatement as VC of the UNILAG.
“President Buhari has approved all the recommendations of the Report of the Special Visitation Panel to the University of Lagos. Among the recommendations are the reinstatement of Professor Oluwatoyin T. Ogundipe as the Vice-Chancellor, as his removal did not follow due process,” the FG announced.
“Professor Oluwatoyin Ogundipe is hereby reinstated as the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Lagos. —The Governing Council of the University of Lagos is hereby dissolved.
“Mr. President hopes these steps will bring peace, stability, focus and direction to the University of Lagos,” it added.
