The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), University of Lagos (UNILAG) chapter, has lauded the Federal Government for reinstating Prof. Oluwatoyin Ogundipe as the Vice-Chancellor of the university.
The union’s Chairman, Dr Dele Ashiru, who gave the commendation in an interview with newsmen on Wednesday said the reinstatement of the vice-chancellor is a huge relief, NAN reports.
According to him, the reinstatement is also a step to further boost the government’s effort in restoring peace in the entire university community.
“It feels glorious and I want to thank the visitor to the university, President Muhammadu Buhari, through the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu, for this very historic intervention.
“This has put an end to tyranny, authoritarianism and dictatorship which characterised the Wale Babalakin-led Governing Council.
“We indeed, thank the visitor for standing on the path of truth, due process and autonomy of the Nigerian university system.
“It is our conviction that this decision by the government will return our great university to the path of peace, progress and scholarly excellence for which the university is renowned,’’ he said.
