President Muhammadu Buhari has asked the embattled and sacked Vice-Chancellor of the University of Lagos (UNILAG), Prof. Toyin Ogundipe to step aside.

Naija News reports that Buhari also directed the Pro-Chancellor of the institution, Dr. Wale Babalakin to recuse himself from official duties.

The president constituted a special visitation panel to look into the ongoing crisis in UNILAG.

The panel was given two weeks to submit its report.

This was made known in a press statement signed by the Federal Ministry of Education spokesman, Ben Goong.

Recall that the Babalakin-led governing council of the institution had sacked Ogundipe as VC over alleged financial misappropriation and misconduct.

However, Ogundipe rejected the Council’s decision, saying the University’s due process had not been followed.

But Babalakin insisted that due process was followed in the termination Ogundipe’s appointment.
