Nine professors have been shortlisted to contest for the post of the Vice-Chancellor at the Lagos State University (LASU).

They include Prof. Abolade #Adeniji, Dean, Faculty of #Arts; Prof. #Sena Bakre, former Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academics); and Prof. Olatunji #Bello, Lagos State University College of #Medicine (LASUCOM).

The rest are Prof. Nurudeen #Olasupo, Department of #Microbiology; Prof. Hamidu #Sanni of the Islamic Studies Department; and Prof. Babajide #Elemo, Science Facultyý.

Also shortlisted are a professor from Texas, U.S., simply identified as Oki; Prof. S.A. Tella, Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ogun; and Prof. Lanre #Fagbohun, a former #LASU staff now in the University of Lagos (UNILAG).

Fourteen professors applied for the job, according to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

“Nine were shortlisted after several considerations of their qualifications and pre-requisites for absorption,” NAN quoted a source as saying.

The immediate past Vice-Chancellor, Prof. John #Obafunwa, whose tenure ended on Oct. 31 was not shortlisted.

The source added: “although the advertisement had outlined that the professorship of the candidates must have lasted seven years, it was extended to 10 years during the screening as it applies in federal universities.”

The interview for the shortlisted candidates has been scheduled for December 7 at #LASUCOM, Ikeja.

The post of the Vice-Chancellor at #LASU had been vacant, following the expiration of the tenure of the former, Obafunwa on Oct. 31.

The Lagos State Government had on Nov. 7, appointed Prof. Fidelis #Njokanma, (DVC, Administration) as the Acting VC of the institution through the university’s Governing Council led by Professor Adebayo Ninalowo.

Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State had on Nov. 17, sent the LASU 2015 Amendment Bill to the state House of Assembly for ratification.

He proposed a single term of five years for the institution’s vice-chancellor.
