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.
