Reps panel to meet UNILAG VC, others over crisis



House of Representatives Committee on Public Procurement has scheduled a meeting for Tuesday, May 21, 2019 to resolve the lingering crisis among top officials of the University of Lagos (UNILAG).

The decision was taken after the committee’s meeting with the institution’s Vice Chancellor, Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, and his deputy in charge of development services, Folasade Ogunsola, among other stakeholders.

Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education, Sunny Echonno and Executive Secretary, National Universities Commission (NUC), Abubakar Rasheed, led Ogundipe and his team to the meeting.

Chairman of the committee, Oluwole Oke (Obokun/Oriade Federal Constituency) in Osun State commended the ministry for its prompt intervention on the matter.

The ministry and the NUC had earlier met with Ogundipe on the matter and had planned to meet Chairman of the university’s governing council, Wale Babalakin.

Echono in his preliminary findings blamed the feud on communication gap between management and the council.
