|Buhari lauds UNILAG Senate’s role in resolving crisis by flowbaze: 3:05 am On July 15, 2021|
• Shobanjo urges graduating students to break new grounds
The crisis led to the cancellation of the 2019 convocation scheduled for March 2020. Buhari, who was represented by the Executive Secretary, National Universities Commission (NUC), Prof. Rasheed Abubakar, at the rescheduled convocation, which featured conferment of honorary degrees on four prominent Nigerians, including Alhaji Muhammadu Indimi, Marketing Communication expert, Biodun Shobanjo, Sir Kessington Adebutu, and the late Dr. Ameyo Stella Adadevoh, said the intervention of UNILAG Senate’s role informed his decision to set up a special visitation panel to investigate the crisis.
He said: “As visitor to this university, I cannot but recollect the recent council-management crisis of 2020. I commend the university Senate for its maturity and decision to send a delegation to me on the matter. Government immediately set up a special visitation panel to investigate the crisis. Recommendations of the panel were promptly implemented to restore peace to the institution. Part of this restoration process necessitated the appointment of a new governing council under the chairmanship of Senator Olanrewaju Tejuoso.”
With the reinstatement of the vice chancellor, President Buhari enjoined the university community to embrace peace, which is the hallmark of nation building and development.
He added that visitation panels set up to investigate federal-owned institutions in February were wrapping up their work and assured that the Federal Government would speedily implement their recommendations.
Borno State Governor, Prof. Babagana Zulum, urged the institution to promote research on peace, unity and economic development.
Zulum also announced plans to partner with the university to get more Borno Indigenes to undergo postgraduate studies at the institution.
While congratulating the graduands, Shobanjo urged them to be passionate in all they do and be ready to break new grounds.
On his part, Adebutu announced the donation of N200 million to the university to improve its internet facilities.
The university also conferred a posthumous award of Emeritus Professorship on late Prof. Oyewusi Ibidapo-Obe, the eighth vice Chancellor of the university, who died in January this year. Ibidapo-Obe had also served as the pioneer Vice Chancellor of the Federal university, Ndufu Alike in Ebonyi State.
