OAU Crisis: Buhari Wades In On Appointment Of An Acting VC

President Muhammadu Buhari has directed the Senate of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, to immediately recommend a qualified person for appointment, as an acting Vice Chancellor for the university.

According to Channels Television, the President made this order in a letter addressed to the Executive Secretary of the National Universities Commission. The President directed the Senate not to consider any of the candidates who earlier contested for the position. The letter further says the Senate of the university should take immediate steps to implement the directive of the President and report back to the Federal Ministry of Education.

Workers and students of the institution recently trooped out in jubilation following the dissolution of the school’s governing council and the suspension of the selection of the Vice Chancellor by the Federal government. In the view of many students and staff of the institution, the federal government’s decision was a step towards the redemption and integrity of the institution.

Obafemi Awolowo University students have been stayed at home for over 3 months now with no resumption date in proper view.
