Soldiers have been deployed to the VC, Trenchard Hall of the University of Ibadan over the process for the selection of a candidate to replace the incumbent Vice Chancellor, Prof. Idowu Olayinka.
According to The Eagle Online, members of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities and Non-Academic Staff of Universities have mobilised to the venue of the announcement of the candidate for the Senate/Selection Board for the incoming VC, Trenchard Hall.
The venue had become rowdy, with Soldiers, of the Oyo State security outfit, Operation Burst, allegedly threatening to shoot anyone who foments trouble, the medium reported.
More canddiates have withdrawn from the process on allegations of unfairness. Prof. A. A. Fasanmade of the Department of Physiology, College of Medicine of the institution was one of the latest additions to those who withdrew from attending the selection process.
The Federal government has also advised the University Senate to cancel and begin fresh process of selecting a credible vice chancellor.
