Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has cancelled the ongoing process set up for the appointment of a substantive ninth Vice-Chancellor of the Lagos State University, LASU.
The Governor also directed that a fresh process that would terminate in forty-five days should commence with immediate effect.
This was contained in a statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr Gboyega Akosile.
He said that Governor Sanwo-Olu’s decision came after a thorough investigation and stakeholders engagement, which were necessitated by various petitions against the selection process.
According to the statement, the outgoing Vice-Chancellor, Professor Olanrewaju Fagbohun has also been directed by Governor Sanwo-Olu to convene an emergency Senate meeting for the purpose of appointing one of the Deputy Vice-Chancellors, who is not a candidate in the cancelled selection process as Acting Vice-Chancellor from Monday, January 11, when the tenure of the incumbent Vice-Chancellor expires.
The Governor further directed the Senate to select among its members, an interim chairman to superintend the meeting and conduct of the election of Acting Vice-Chancellor.
