The Federal Government had, last week, asked UNILAG Senate to reconvene and nominate an acting VC following the crisis between the varsity’s Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of Council, Wale Babalakin, and Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Oluwatoyin Ogundipe.

The Federal Government also asked Babalakin and Ogundipe to recuse themselves from official duties, pending the outcome of the Special Visitation Panel set up by the President of Country, Muhammadu Buhari.

With her emergence, Ogunsola has broken UNILAG’s 58-year record by becoming the first female to be appointed as an acting VC of the institution since it was founded in 1962.
