Dr Wale Babalakin, SAN, on Thursday resigned as the Chairman of the Governing Council of the University of Lagos, UNILAG.
His resignation came few hours after the Special Visitation Panel set up by the Federal Government to look into the affairs of the university submitted its report to the Education Minister, Malam Adamu Adamu, in Abuja.
Confirming the development to our correspondent in an interview, the Media Aide to Babalakin, Mr Mikail Mumuni, said his boss had resigned his position in the Council.
It was gathered that his resignation was to preempt the call for him to be sacked from the Council.
Though the government is yet to officially come out with its decisions on the panel’s report, it was learnt that both Babalakin and the embattled Vice-Chancellor, Prof Toyin Ogundipe, may not come back to the office.
