UNILAG VC Crisis: SSANU disowns branch chair for protest against VC’s removal

Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Universities, SSANU, has dissociated itself from the solidarity protest by the acting Chairman of the University of Lagos, Unilag chapter, Comrade Olusola Sowunmi on the removal of the Vice-Chancellor of the University, Prof. Toyin Ogundipe by the University’s Council.

Comrade Sowunmi had allegedly joined the joint meeting of the university-based unions in the condemnation of the Dr. Wale Babalakin-led Council of the University of Lagos in what they described as “unjust, ungodly and illegal” removal of the University Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Ogundipe.

However, the SSANU executive of the Unilag chapter in a statement on Friday, signed by its acting Secretary, Comrade Feyisetan Olaoluwa, condemned its acting Chairman for joining in the protest, alleging that the entire scenario was political and that the union will not dabble into the leadership tussle in the institution.
