The Senate of the Lagos State University (LASU), on Monday, appointed Professor Oyedamola Oke, the deputy vice-chancellor, administration, of the institution, as its acting vice-chancellor.
His appointment was announced during the varsity’s emergency senate meeting.
Prof. Oke replaces Prof. Olanrewaju Fagbohun, the outgoing vice-chancellor, whose tenure expired on January 11, 2021.
Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, had halted the previous process for the appointment of a new VC following several petitions from the selection procedure.
He had, thereafter, asked Fagbohun to convene an emergency senate meeting towards appointing one of the deputy vice-chancellors as acting vice-chancellor.
It is understood that over 18 professors from about 10 universities applied for the job. There was, however, controversy over the qualification of some candidates shortlisted to replace Fagbohun.
