As announced, the new acting VC is Professor Theophilus Omololu Soyombo of the Faculty of Social Sciences of the university.

Although Ogundipo claimed in a statement made available to DAILY POST, that the council’s decision “is untrue and a figment of its imagination.” He also insisted that he remains the Vice Chancellor of the University.

However, the council in a statement released on Thursday by its Registrar and Secretary, Esq. Oladejo Azeez maintained that Ogundipe has been removed as the Vice chancellor of the University.

Azeez also urged the public to disregard the letter which purports to deny the VC’s removal by the Governing Council of the University.

“My attention has been drawn to a document circulating under the hand and signature of the former Vice Chancellor of University of Lagos, Professor Oluwatoyin T. Ogundipe, FAS.

“The letter purports to deny his removal by the Governing Council of University at its Emergency Meeting of Wednesday, August 12, 2020.

”For the avoidance of doubt, I am in my capacity as Registrar and Secretary to Council the only custodian of the minutes of Council and the authorizing officer on behalf of Council to issue official statements pertaining to all Council Affairs.

“Members of the public are hereby advised to totally disregard the statement attributed to the said former Vice Chancellor.

“The position remains that he was lawfully removed by the Governing Council at a meeting fully attended by all Council members.

“I also wish to use the opportunity to inform members of the public that Council at the said meeting duly appointed Professor Theophilus Omololu Soyomboof the Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Lagos as Vice Chancellor of the University in an Acting Capacity,” the statement read.
