The suspended Vice-Chancellor of the University of Lagos, Oluwatoyin Ogundipe has been reinstated by President Mohammadu Buhari.
The president also dissolved the Governing Council of the university, formerly chaired by Wale Babalakin.
In a statement on Wednesday morning, the spokesperson of the Federal Ministry of Education, Ben Gooong, said the president hopes these steps will bring peace, stability, focus and direction to the University.
According to Buhari, the suspension of Mr Ogundipe by the governing council did not follow due process.
“The Vice Chancellor was not granted an opportunity to defend himself on the allegations upon which his removal was based. He should accordingly be re-instated,” he said.
ElombahNews reported the crisis that led to the controversial suspension of Mr Ogundipe as the vice-chancellor by the Wale Babalakin-led governing council of the university on August 12.
The federal government intervened in the crises by asking both Ogundipe and Babalakin to step aside until the conclusion of its investigation into the crisis.
