A former Professional-Rector of the College of Lagos, Dr. Wale Babalakin (SAN), blamed the Federal Authorities’s declare that the UNILAG Board of Administrators chaired by him was dissolved after the disaster within the establishment that led to the dismissal and reinstatement of the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Oluwatoyin Ogundipe.
In advising the federal government to replace its information due to “an apparent mistake”, Babalakin mentioned that the governing council that was dissolved was not the one he chaired since he resigned two months in the past and was appointed an interim president.
Babalakin, in his resignation letter in September 2020 to the Minister of Training, Mallam Adamu Dama, mentioned that there have been many vested pursuits within the UNILAG case, which weren’t addressing the problems objectively.
Babalakin in a observe from his media adviser and company affairs supervisor for the Resort Worldwide Restricted Group, Mikail Mumuni, responded to final Wednesday’s assertion by Federal Ministry of Training’s Director of Press and Public Relations, Ben Bem Goong.
Goong within the assertion had mentioned that “the Board of Administrators of the College of Lagos, chaired by Dr. BO Babalakin, is dissolved”
However Babalakin in his assertion mentioned: “His workplace introduced the dissolution of the College of Lagos Board of Administrators by a press launch on Wednesday, November 11, 2020, amongst others.
“There’s an apparent mistake in your press launch. The Council that was dissolved couldn’t have been chaired by Dr. BO Babalakin (SAN), as you mistakenly said, since he resigned on September 17, 2020
“That was no less than two months earlier than your press launch was made. If there was any Council to be dissolved, it will need to have been chaired by Mr. John Momoh. Please replace your registration accordingly. Thanks.”
