The Centre for Anti-Corruption and Open Management (CACOL) has counseled President Muhammadu Buhari for his determination on the College of Lagos (UNILAG).
On Friday, Buhari ordered the Governing Council Chairman, Wale Babalakin and the Vice Chancellor, Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, to vacate their positions.
CACOL Director of Administration, Tola Oresanwo, in an announcement on Sunday, stated this could calm frayed nerves on the establishment.
CACOL pressured that the presidential directive was wanted to cease the disaster from getting uncontrolled.
“Now we have all the time believed within the precept of College Autonomy which is the institutional type of educational freedom and a needed precondition to ensure the correct success of the capabilities entrusted to higher-education educating personnel and establishments.
“We hope this intervention is not going to in any approach violate the autonomy being loved by the college and in addition consider this may deliver a long-lasting resolution to the disaster and engender peace and mutual co-existence between all of the stakeholders of the college”, it stated.
Stakeholders, together with UNILAG Senate, Educational Workers Union of Universities (ASUU), Senior Workers Affiliation of Nigeria Universities (SSANU), Non Educational Workers Union (NASU), have individually and collectively condemned Babalakin.
In its response, Committee of Vice Chancellors of Universities referred to as Ogundipe’s sack “a hatchet job”.
