The Special Visitation Panel set up by the Nigerian Government to investigate the management crisis at the University of Lagos (UNILAG) has submitted its report of findings.
Recieving the report on behalf of the Federal goverment, the Minisiter of Education, Adamu Adamu, said
the recommendations of the panel would be thoroughly scrutinised with the aim of full implementation.
Adamu had warned the panel members against interference with the activities of UNILAG management.
Meanwhile, the Pro-Chancellor of the University of Lagos, Dr. Wale Babalakin(SAN), has resigned following percieved disagreement with the Government on the Visitation Panel sent to the university.
He said there were too many vested interests in UNILAG matter, who were not approaching the issues objectively.
He added that the visitation panel was raised to exonerate the Vice-Chancellor and implicate the Pro-Chancellor.
He said although he appeared in protest before the panel, he made it clear that the panel could not determine the issues before it.
Babalakin, however, said he would not be available again to serve as the Chairman of the Federal Government Negotiation Team on the Agreement reached with university unions in 2009.
Wake Babalakin has been the chairman of the negotiating team since January 6th, 2017.
The Nigerian government had set up a panel to look into the UNILAG crisis after its governing council dismissed its vice-chancellor, Prof. Oluwatoyin Ogundipe.
