Just In: FG Places Indefinite Ban On UI Governing Council Meetings Over VC Selection Saga

The Federal government through the ministry of education have directed The University of Ibadan to halt all governing Council meetings for the main time.

This was conveyed in a letter signed on Monday by the Permanent Secretary of the Education Ministry, Mr. Sonny Echono and sent to the Executive Secretary of the National Universities Commission.

It would be recalled that following multiple allegations of malpractices, the selection process for the appointment of a new Vice Chancellor of the University was suspended in November last year.

The Deputy Vice Chancellor, Academics, Prof. Babatunde Ekanola was subsequently elected in acting capacity for the next six months.

Meanwhile, it now remains unsure if the tenure of the acting VC would be prolonged after it expires by April.
