UI: FG Suspends Meeting of Governing Council
The Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu has approved the suspension of all meetings of the Governing Council of the University of Ibadan.
This was conveyed in a letter to the Executive Secretary of the National Universities Commission signed by the Permanent Secretary of the Education Ministry, Mr. Sonny Echono.
The letter which stated that resumption of any further meeting would be communicated by the ministry, empowered the NUC to ensure full compliance on the Minister’s directive to the premier university.
It would be recalled that University of Ibadan had been witnessing leadership selection tussle following multiple allegations of malpractices in the selection process for the appointment of a new Vice Chancellor.
The process was suspended last November and the Deputy Vice Chancellor, Academics, Prof. Babatunde Ekanola moved in acting capacity for the next six months.
