The Governing Council of the University of Ibadan has named Prof. Kayode Adebowale, the new substantive Vice Chancellor of the almost 73-year-old  university.

Adebowale, a professor of Chemistry and the current Deputy Vice Chancellor, Administration, was announced on Thursday by the Governing Council.

The Chairman, UI Governing Council, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, confirmed this to our correspondent on the telephone.

He said, “Yes, Prof. Adebowale has been named UI VC.”

Sixteen candidates had applied for the position out of which Prof. Remi Raji withdrew from the race bringing the number down to 15.

The screening of the 15 candidates included  both presentation and interview  by the members of council who scored each candidates’ performance.

A former DVC, Academics, Prof.  Adeyinka Aderinto; the acting VC, Prof. Babatunde  Ekanola,   Prof. H. Fawehinmi, Prof. O. Farounbi, Prof. B. Salako;   Prof. G. Aderounmu and  Prof. O. Ademowo, also made the final stage of the screening.

The selection process started in May 2020 some months to the expiration of the then VC, Prof. Idowu Olayinka. The process cancelled allegations of fraud.

Odigie-Oyegun, who recently announced the new council chairman, had announced that process would be started afresh  after a decision was reached at a meeting of the council.
