Battle for Soul of UNILAG: intrigues as Babalakin sacks VC, Eye witness reveals procedure a 'sham'


The raging battle for who controls the soul of the University of Lagos, continued in earnest today as the Pro Chancellor of the University, Dr. Wale Babalakin sacked the Vice Chancellor of the University.

However, not too long after the said action took place, a letter addressed to Senate Members, surfaced, indicating that all was not well with the procedures that led to the sack of the Vice Chancellor.
According to the letter signed by Prof. Bola Oboh an eye witness of the proceedings and a Senate Rep in Council, the process was a sham as the university’s regulation was stepped on and ridiculed.
Below is the letter that Prof Bola Oboh wrote to her colleagues stating what took place during the purported sack of the Vice Chancellor.
Dear Senate members, the University of Lagos regulation has been stepped on and ridiculed. Babawale Babalakin, the ProChancellor waited for the tenure of Prof. Chukwu and Prof. Familoni to end, to call an Emergency Council meeting.
Based on the Dagari report, without allowing the VC defend himself, the ProChancellor called for a vote for the removal of the VC. I (Prof. Oboh), Prof. Odukoya, Prof. Leshi and John Momoh voted against the removal of the VC. Six persons (excluding Babalakin) voted for.
Babalakin then went ahead to announce the removal of the VC.
Dear Senate members, the procedure for removal of persons in office is clear and this was pointed out to Babalakin several times but he turned deaf ears. He said he will announce the Ag. Vice Chancellor at 5pm. I have excused myself that I need to report to Senate members the shameful act currently ongoing.
Please let us arise to fight this.
Thank you
Bola Oboh
Senate Rep in Council
