The Special Visitation Panel set up by the Federal Government to investigate the management crisis at the University of Lagos (UNILAG) has concluded its investigation and submitted a report of its findings.
The UNILAG crisis had started following a series of decisions taken by the institution’s governing council, including the removal of the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, and the appointment of a replacement.
The Federal government then intervened as the crisis escalated. The Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, inaugurated the special visitation panel, headed by Prof. Tukur Sa’ad, to investigate the management crisis and submit a report within two weeks. The Minister warned members against interference with the activities of UNILAG management.
The panel submitted the report to Mallam Adamu in Abuja on Thursday, September 17. The Chairman of the panel, Professor Tukur Sa’ad, declared that the submitted report will bring an end to the crisis in the university.
Mallam Adamu, however, said the recommendations of the panel would be thoroughly scrutinized with the aim of full implementation.
