Pick best candidate as VC, LASU profs urge Sanwo-Olu
Some members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, Lagos State University, Ojo, Lagos, have appealed to the Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, to ensure he picks the best candidate among the three names that will be submitted to him for the position of the substantive Vice-Chancellor of the institution.
The dons, who are made up of nine scholars and referred to themselves as the liberators made the request Friday, at a press conference in LASU.
The coordinator of the liberators, Prof. Adeleke Fakoya, said they believed that whoever came first had the superior intelligence to lead the school.
He said, “We want the LASU-model of excellence to be upheld. Whoever comes first must have prepared himself for that screening, so they should allow him to become the VC.
“We want the best candidate. We don’t want anyone to be chosen based on tribe, religion, and others but strictly based on merit. Mr Governor should pick the number one person on the list.”
