President Muhammadu Buhari has directed the Senate of the Obafemi Awolowo University, OAU, Ile-Ife, Osun State to immediately recommend a qualified person for appointment, as acting Vice Chancellor for the university.

This was contained in a letter addressed to the Executive Secretary of the National Universities Commission, NUC, urging the Senate of the university to immediately implement the president’s directives and report back to the Federal Ministry of Education.

The President also directed that all the candidates that had earlier contested for the position may not be considered for nomination.

Workers and students of the university had expressed happiness following the dissolution of the university’s governing council by the federal government on July 1.

The dissolution of the governing council was said to have been announced on the Nigerian Television Authority.

According to the staff and students, the decision was a step towards the redemption and integrity of the institution, which had been hit by internal conflicts following the exit of the immediate past Vice Chancellor, Bamitale Omole.
