Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has cancelled the ongoing process to appoint the 9th Vice Chancellor of Lagos State University (LASU).

His spokesman, Gboyega Akosile, made the announcement Friday evening.

Sanwo-Olu has ordered a fresh process which must be completed within 45 days.

In a statement, Akosile said the decision followed an investigation and stakeholder’s engagement necessitated by petitions against the selection process.

The outgoing Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Olanrewaju Fagbohun has also been directed to convene an emergency Senate meeting.

The meeting will appoint one of the Deputy Vice-Chancellors, who is not a candidate in the canceled selection process, as Acting Vice-Chancellor.

The DVC will assume office from Monday, January 11, 2021, the day Fagbohun’s tenure expires.

The Governor further directed the Senate to select, among its members, a chairman to superintend the meeting and conduct of the election of Acting VC.
