UI senate to select acting Vice-Chancellor

The federal government has directed the the senate of the university of Ibadan, Oyo State to arrange a special meeting to select one of its members to the capacity of acting vice-chancellor. According to the directive, the person to be selected must not be a contestant for the position.

The Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, issued the directive in a letter to the university by the Deputy Executive Secretary (Academics), National Universities Commission, Dr Suleiman Ramon-Yusuf. The letter which was dated Friday, November 27, 2020, faulted the proposed meeting of the governing council slated for 10am on Monday.

According to the government, since the tenure of the outgoing vice-chancellor expires on Monday, November 30, 2020, it would be inappropriate for the governing council to convene the meeting as early as 10am on the same day to discuss and consider his possible successor.

The government further directed the meeting which is to discuss issues on the appointment of a new vice-chancellor to be shifted to the afternoon of the same day.

Following the appointment of an acting vice-chancellor, the outgoing vice-chancellor is to hand over to the acting vice-chancellor possibly on Monday, November 30, 2020, or latest by Tuesday, December 1 2020.
