THE Governing Council of the Ladoke Akinola University of Technology, Ogbomoso, has announced the appointment of Prof. Mojeed Liasu, as the acting Vice-Chancellor of the institution in replacement of his embattled successor, Prof. Michael Ologunde.

Ologunde was directed to step aside in a letter by the Oyo State Government through the Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology, Olasunkanmi Olaleye.

The statement titled, ‘Notice to all staff,’ signed by the Registrar of the university, Dr. Kayode Ogunleye, read in part, “Council, having noted the directive, and in order not to create vacuum in the system, approved the appointment of the Deputy Vice Chancellor, Prof. M.
