Professor Mrs Ibiyemi Olatunji-Bello on Monday morning assumed position as the ninth substantive Vice Chancellor of the Lagos State University, LASU, Ojo, Lagos.
Mrs Ibiyemi Olatunji-Bello, whose appointment followed the approval of the recommendation offered by the Selection Committee by the Visitor to the University, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, last Thursday, was welcomed into the Senate Building of the university by a crowd of workers.
Among those who welcomed her was the Acting Vice Chancellor, Prof. Oyedamola Oke. Oke served as the acting VC from January this year when the tenure of the eighth substantive VC, Prof. Olanrewaju Fagbohun, SAN, lapsed.
Before her selection as the VC, Olatunji-Bello had served in various capacities in the university as a deputy vice chancellor and acting VC.
She was chosen as the VC after two selection processes were terminated by Sanwo-Olu following controversies that trailed the exercises.
