President Muhammed Buhari has appointed John Momoh, chairman and CEO of Channels TV as acting chairman of the governing council of the University of Lagos(Unilag), Akoka. Mr Momoh is currently the president of the the institution's alumni association. His appointment follows the removal of Wale Babalekin from the position.
An emergency governing council meeting held yesterday ahead of today's planned inauguration of the visitation panel to the university set up by the president.
The panel is expected to follow up on the issues besetting the university, including a report that accused the former vice chancellor, Oluwatoyin Ogundipe of "financial recklessness, gross misconduct" among other allegations.
The NUC had been notified of the president's directives and urged on to make preparations for the inauguration of the panel prior to today. This includes provision of accommodation for nominated members who are based outside Abuja
