President Buhari

By Our Reporter
At lease, no fewer than 16 Professors from different areas of specialisations and institutions are jostling to emerge as the next vice-chancellor of the University of Ibadan, First Awareness has gathered.

The new VC, when elected, will assume office for a single tenure of five years.

It was also gathered realiably that a Town-Hall meeting organised by the UI Community Forum tagged “The Voice of the Next UI VC, Who is Next?” will hold on Monday, October 4th,2021.

The process of electing the institution’s VC in the past months had been characterised with various allegations, counter-allegations and involved in a series of crises due to clashes and misunderstandings between various interest groups .

First Awareness further learnt that there have  been crisis in the institution since  2020 when the indigenes of Ibadan land under the aegis of Central Council of Ibadan Indigenes (CCII) insisted that it was time for the host town to produce a VC, who is an indigene of the town after 73 years of its existence on their land
