Four Ibadan indigenes, 12 others in race to become UI VC

Published by The Nation on Sun, 13 Sep 2020


By Bisi Oladele, Southwest Bureau ChiefFour indigenes of Ibadan are among 16 applicants for the post of Vice Chancellor of the University of Ibadan (UI).They are Professors Aderemi Raji-Oyelade, Oluwabunmi Olapade-Olaopa, Kayode Adebowale and Kolapo Amzat.Their candidature is a boost to the campaign by the Central Council of Ibadan Indigenes (CCII) for an indigene to be appointed the next VC of the premier university.But it is unclear if the process would permit such sentiment to influence who succeeds Prof. Abel Olayinka on December 1.The new Vice Chancellor, when elected, will assume office for a single term of five years.The applicants have been canvassing for votes from various stakeholders in the university community.The remaining 12 are Professors Babatunde Salako, Babatunde Adeleke, Razaq Rom-Kalilu, Hakeem Fawehimi, Raheem Lawal and Adeyinka Aderinto.Others are Professors Clement Kolawole, Olusegun Ademowo, Oladele Layiwola, Temitope Alonge, Anthony Kadoye Onifade and Ebenezer Farombi.While Adebowale is the Deputy Vice Chancellor (DVC Administration), Aderinto is DVC (Academic).Olapade-Olaopa is the immediate past Provost, College of Medicine while Raji-Oyelade is a former dean, Faculty of Arts of the institution.The candidates are scheduled for a debate tagged The Voice of UI VC: Who is Next later this week.The debate holds on Zoom.Since the process commenced a few months ago, the CCII has been lobbying the presidency to appoint an Ibadan indigene, arguing no indigene has emerged the VC of the premier university in its 72-year history.It described it as marginalisation and urged President Muhammadu Buhari to ensure an Ibadan indigene succeeds the incumbent.The CCII campaign has, however, attracted criticism from several commentators who described it as another move to localise and politicise the university system along ethnic lines.
