UNILAG Pro-Chancellor, Wale Babalakin, resigns

Bad blood? Babalakin criticizes Julius Berger over contract from which he was sacked

The Pro-Chancellor of the University of Lagos, Dr. Wale Babalakin (SAN), has resigned from the position.

Babalakin resigned as UNILAG pro-chancellor just three weeks after he was asked to step aside from the position by the Federal Government over the management crisis in the university.

The federal government had last month set up a seven-man special visitation panel to investigate the circumstances leading to the removal of UNILAG Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Oluwatoyin Ogundipe.

The UNILAG Governing Council removed Ogundipe as the institution’s vice-chancellor on August 12 over alleged gross misconduct and financial impropriety.

“It is true. Dr. Babalakin has resigned from UNILAG,” he said.
