Browsing: Dr. Wale Babalakin (SAN)

A brief recap of the rumpus. On August 12, 2020, the UNILAG Governing Council, then under the headship of Dr. Wale Babalakin (SAN), in a majority vote, at a decisive meeting of the body, relieved the just reinstated VC of his appointment (then), following allegations of abuse of office, financial recklessness and many infractions in award of contracts. This action, expectedly, did not go down well with Prof. Ogundipe and as such immediately headed to court to contest the Governing Council’s decision.

The award is coming less than a month after the Chairman of the Resort Group, Dr. Wale Babalakin (SAN), won Independent Newspapers’ the Most Outstanding Airport Terminal Operator of the Year Award at a colourful ceremony in Lagos.
