Various stakeholders in the University of Ibadan community are to meet on Tuesday as part of measures to resolve the imbroglio that has stalled the process towards the emergence of a substantive Vice-Chancellor (VC) of the university.

The meeting convened by the university’s acting Vice-Chancellor, Professor Babatunde Ekanola is expected to have in attendance members of the council, past Vice-Chancellors, members of Senate, religious leaders and internal applicants for the post of Vice-Chancellor among other stakeholders.

It was gathered that the meeting is driven by Ekanola’s belief that the crisis in the appointment of Vice-Chancellor should be treated internally devoid of external influence.

Upon assumption of office on December 1, Ekanola had asserted commitment to utilising his six months tenure to ensuring that a substantive Vice-Chancellor emerges devoid of rancour and in line with the acceptable process.

Tuesday’s meeting is a continuation of a series of meetings called by Ekanola, since emergence as acting Vice-Chancellor, to mend fences.

He had earlier met with members of the university community to include the Non-Academic Staff Union and Senior Staff Union of Nigerian Universities. (Nigerian Tribune)
