A lecturer at the Department of English, Faculty of Arts, University of Ibadan, Professor Ademola Omobewaji Dasylva has again accused the Vice Chancellor of the institution, Professor Idowu Olayinka for manipulating the process leading to the selection of the new Vice Chancellor of the institution.

Dasylva has again accused Olayinka of planting one of his loyalists, Professor Kayode Adebowale, the current Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Administration) as the next Vice-Chancellor of the 72-year-old university.

The aggrieved lecturer in a letter addressed to the Chairman, Governing Council, University of Ibadan, through the Registrar and Secretary to Council, University of Ibadan, insisted that the process and conduct of the selection of the two Senate representatives were compromised technically and fraught with procedural improprieties.

In another petition, entitled “Re- Petition against the Election of Senate Representatives on the Selection Board held on 21 September, 2020: Objection to the Emergency Senate Meeting Scheduled for Thursday, 8 October, 2020”, Dasylva alleged that Olayinka, who is also the Chairman of Senate, has already shown evidence of bias and prejudice to support Adebowale as the next Vice Chancellor of the institution.
