The embattled Vice Chancellor of the University of Lagos, Lagos state, Professor Oluwatonyin Ogundipe, has cleared the air on his purported removal, describing it as the figment of the Registrar’s imagination.

The Registrar of the University of Lagos, Oladejo Azeez, Esq, had in a letter he signed, dated August 12, 2020, notified the general public on the removal of the Vice Chancellor.

But in a swift counter, Professor Ogundipe in a release he personally signed today, said”The attention of the University of Lagos (Unilag) management has been drawn to the ‘Notice to the General Public on the Removal of the Vice Chancellor, University of Lagos’; dated August 12, 2020 and signed by Oladejo Azeez, Esq, Registrar and Secretary to Council, stating that the current Vice Chancellor, Professor Oluwatoyin T. Ogundipe, FAS  has been removed  from office with immediate effect. 

“This is untrue and a figment of his imagination. Therefore, stakeholders of Unilag and the general public are advised to disregard this mischievous disinformation about the sitting Vice Chancellor of Unilag, contained in that notice. Professor Ogundipe still remains Unilag’s Vice Chancellor”
