Only Six of Eighteen candidates would be shortlisted for UI VC race- UI Governing Council

Processes leading up to the emergence of the next Vice Chancellor (UI) of the University of Ibadan (VC) hot up this week as the 18 candidates in the race are to meet with council, which is the supreme governing authority of the university, on Tuesday. In what is referred to as an interactive session, each of the 18 candidates is expected to make a 15-minute powerpoint presentation on their agenda and plans for the university if they emerge Vice Chancellor.

Though candidates had on September 17 made presentations to the university community, Tuesday’s meeting of the candidates with the council will greatly determine those that will be shortlisted to remain the race. After Tuesday’s interaction, it is expected that the 18 will be pruned down to six candidates that will be interviewed by the Senate selection board on Wednesday.

However, council meetings on Tuesday and Wednesday are to be preceded by a meeting which held on Monday where council will address petitions of some contestants as Senate representatives on the Joint Council/Senate selection board for the appointment of the next Vice Chancellor of the university. It will be recalled that two contestants, Professor Ademola Dasylva and Professor Adesoji Fasanmade had faulted the September 21 election that produced Professor Ezekiel Ayoola and Professor Peter Olapegba as Senate representatives for the appointment of the next Vice Chancellor.
