Following the expiration of the tenure of the Vice-chancellor of the University of Ibadan (UI), National Universities Commission (NUC) has directed the Governing Council of varsity to appoint an Acting Vice-Chancellor to take over on November 30, 2020.

The order became imperative following the deadlock in the appointment of a new VC to replace Professor Abel Idowu Olayinka, whose tenure expires on 30 November.

Professor Abubakar Rasheed, Executive Secretary of NUC, in a letter dated 27th November 2020 and addressed to the Pro-Chancellor of the University, said the appointment of an acting vice-chancellor was to avoid a vacuum in the administration of the university.

The letter which was signed by Dr Suleiman Ramon-Yusuf, Deputy Executive Secretary, Academics on behalf of the Executive Secretary read: “You will please recall the directives of the Honourable Minister of Education on the resolution of the impasse in the process for the appointment of a new vice chancellor for the University of Ibadan.

“I write at the behest of the Executive Secretary to convey the Honourable Minister’s further directive on necessary steps to resolve the impasse and restore peace and harmony necessary for the discharge of the university’s core mandate:

“The Governing Council of the University of Ibadan is hereby directed to shift its meeting earlier scheduled for 10.00 a.m. on Monday, 30th November 2020 to discuss the issue of appointment of a new vice-chancellor to later in the afternoon on the same day.
