Blesstal Records That The Senate of the Lagos State University has appointed Damola Oke as the acting vice-chancellor of the institution.
.
Before his appointment, Oke is the Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Administration of LASU.
.
He was appointed at the emergency senate meeting held on Monday.
.
The PUNCH reports that Lagos State Governor and Visitor to Lagos State University, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, had cancelled the ongoing process set up for the appointment of a substantive ninth Vice-Chancellor of the University.
.
The Governor further directed that a fresh process that would terminate in 45 days should commence immediately.
.
The outgoing Vice-Chancellor, Professor Olanrewaju Fagbohun, was also directed to convene an emergency Senate meeting for the purpose of appointing one of the Deputy Vice-Chancellors, who is not a candidate in the cancelled selection process as Acting Vice-Chancellor from Monday, January 11, 2021, when his tenure expires.
.
Following the expiration of the tenure of Fagbohun, today, a joint Selection Committee of the Senate and Council was set up by the university to interview candidates for the position.
.
The Committee was expected to submit the names of the three best candidates for the job for onward transmission to the Visitor (the Lagos State Governor) for the final selection of one successful candidate for the job.

More than 18 Professors from about 10 universities applied for the job. But there was controversy over the qualification of some candidates selected to replace Fagbohun.
