The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Ibadan, Professor Idowu Olayinka is allegedly chairing a Senate meeting amid tight security.
OYOINSIGHT.COM understands that the Senate meeting was called to hear petitions against the alleged level of extent the VC is going to ‘ensure his anointed candidate’ succeeds him.
According to an impeccable source, the VC is currently refusing people with counter-arguments to air their opinion in the meeting.
“The controversial Senate meeting ongoing in UI now. Under Police Escort!
“VC is sitting as chairman over issues in which he has been implicated as an interested party, full of partiality and open support for a candidate.
“Three policemen and an undisclosed number of plain-clothed operatives are right there manning the location of the meeting- ICC.
“Inside, the VC refuses to allow any debate, he is calling members of his own group to make comments and ramifications,” the source alleged.
The source however added that “all decisions made there today will remain void without proper return of the matter to the Governing Council.”
OYOINSIGHT.COM tried unsuccessfully to get through to Olayinka as calls placed to his mobile number were not connecting as at press time.
