Last month, IBPulse reported that the University of Ibadan is in search of a new vice chancellor. I have the list of the 12 contenders.In a guest post for IBPulse, the outgoing vice chancellor’s media rep shared the qualities that are required of the next vice chancellor of the University of Ibadan.
That said, find below the list of top 12 contenders for the post. Out of the 12, 11 are from the university while only one is from outside the University of Ibadan. How good are his chances?
The external candidate is Professor A. Adedeji
The rest are Professors O.O Layiwola (Institute of African Studies), O.O Akinyinka (Pediatrics), F.O Egbokhare (Linguistics and African Languages), Arinola, O. Sanya (Physiotherapy ), B.O Fagbemi (Veterinary Microbiology and Parasitology), L. Popoola (Forest Resources Management), A.I Olayinka (Geology), A.I Oluleye (Industrial and Production Engineering), O.D Olaleye (Virology), A.E Falaye (Aquaculture and Fisheries Management) and A.A. Agbaje (Political Science).
All the aspiring candidates will soon interact with the university community under the platform of the ‘University of Ibadan Community Forum 2015’, in a move to ensure a democratic emergence of a new Vice Chancellor for the University.
