ASUU VS BABALAKIN: UNILAG COUNCIL MOVES SITTING TO ABUJA
Rather than thawing, the frosty relationship between the Chairman of the Governing Council of the University of Lagos, Dr Wale Babalakin, SAN, and the management of the institution has taken a new turn as the Council has scheduled its meeting for the National Universities Commission, NUC, headquarters in Abuja.
This is because of the inability of the Council to meet on the campus of the university in Akoka, Lagos following the declaration of Babalakin as a persona non grata by members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, UNILAG chapter.
Babalakin and the UNILAG Vice-Chancellor, Prof Toyin Ogundipe, have been at loggerheads over some issues relating to the running of the school. The face-off led to the last-minute suspension of this year’s graduation ceremonies of the school.
