The Pro-Chancellor of the University of Lagos, Dr Wale Babalakin(SAN), has resigned following his alleged disagreement with the Federal Government on the Visitation Panel sent to the university.
His resignation came a few moments after the Special Visitation Panel raised by President Buhari, over the university’s crisis submitted its report in Abuja.
Though the government is yet to make the recommendations of the panel public, Babalakin feared the panel may have recommended his sack. Babalakin said there were too many vested interests in the UNILAG matter, who according to him, did not approach the issues objectively.
He said it has come to a stage where he must stand by his principles since the Federal Government believed the actions he took may not be right.
He said the visitation panel was raised to exonerate the Vice-Chancellor and implicate the Pro-Chancellor.
Babalakin said although he appeared in protest before the panel, he made it clear that the panel could not determine the issues before it.
