Reacting to the purported rebuttal by the sacked VC making round newsroom that he remains in office, Oladejo in the latest response, informed ITREALMS that his attention was drawn to a document circulating under the hand and signature of the former Vice Chancellor of University of Lagos, Professor Oluwatoyin T. Ogundipe.

The letter, he said, purports to deny his removal by the Governing Council of University at its Emergency Meeting of Wednesday, August 12, 2020.

According to the registrar, for the avoidance of doubt, "I am in my capacity as Registrar and Secretary to Council the only custodian of the minutes of Council and the authorizing officer on behalf of Council to issue official statements pertaining to all Council Affairs."

Oladejo maintained that the position of the council remains that he (Prof. Ogundipe) was lawfully removed by the Governing Council at a meeting fully attended by all Council members.

He also advised the public to totally disregard the statement attributed to the said former Vice Chancellor.

"I also wish to use the opportunity to inform members of the public that Council at the said meeting duly appointed Professor Theophilus Omololu Soyombo," he insisted.
