Professor Ogundipe, a professor of botany and the university's 12th vice chancellor, will step down from his position in early November when his five-year term as vice chancellor has come to an end.

Dr. Olanrewaju Tejuosho, the university's provost and chairman of the governing council, made the discovery on Monday during a celebration marking the university's 60th anniversary at the college of medicine in Idi Araba.

Professor Ogundipe is one VC that a large percentage of the student loved. Even when there were allegations against him, he prevailed.

The new vice-chancellor will be revealed and announced on Friday, according to him, who also claimed that the hiring process is nearing its conclusion.

He said that God Almighty, not man, made the final decision and that the selection process was democratic, fair, thorough, and transparent.

He did, however, compliment the departing vice chancellor for his enthusiasm and dedication to UNILAG's growth during his five years in office.

In the past 60 years of teaching, research, and community participation, he claimed, UNILAG had successfully carried out its three main goals.

However, he condemned the Academic Staff Union of Universities' (ASUU) current statewide strike, claiming that the situation has had a significant negative impact on higher education.

In his welcome speech, the departing vice-chancellor, Prof. Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, expressed his eternal gratitude to God for His constant guidance and support during the 38 days he still has left in his tenure as the university's vice-chancellor.

He claimed that UNILAG had established itself as a household name in the fields of research, innovation, and community services in addition to academia.

He claimed that even if the current ASUU strike is keeping students and faculty off campus at the present, the 60th celebration is still going on and will last for a full year.

He claimed that because the strike is nationwide and affects all federal universities, UNILAG is powerless to halt it. 

Hopefully, the ongoing ASUU strike will end soon and students will be able to resume their studies.
