The Senate of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife has appointed Anthony Elujoba as its Acting Vice Chancellor.



    Elujoba, a professor of Pharmacognosy, is also a fellow of the Royal Society of UK Research Fellow.

    The federal government had on July 17 directed the Senate of the Obafemi Awolowo University, OAU, Ile-Ife, Osun State to immediately recommend a qualified person for appointment, as acting VC.

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

    The directive came after a crisis that led to the shutdown of the institution on June 22 following protests by the Non Academic Staff of Universities, NASU, and Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, SSANU,over alleged imposition of a Vice-Chancellor.
