LAGOS: Gbajabiamila mourns late ex-UNILAG VC

THE Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, has expressed sadness over the demise of the former Vice-Chancellor of the University of Lagos, Prof Oyewusi Ibidapo-Obe.

Gbajabiamila said the late ex-UNILAG VC, who died  on Sunday at 71, was “one patriotic Nigerian who gave his best toward the development of his country”.

Ibidapo-Obe’s death, said the speaker, “is a great loss not just to the academia but also the country”.

In a condolence statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Lanre Lasisi, Gbajabiamila recalled “with nostalgia” how the professor, a one-time Chairman of the Committee of Vice-Chancellors of Nigerian Universities, made remarkable strides during his term as the VC of UNILAG.

Ibidapo-Obe was, until his death, the Chairman and Pro-Chancellor of First Technical University, Ibadan, Oyo State. He later served as the VC of the Federal University Ndufu Alike, Ikwo, Ebonyi State.

The Speaker also condoled with the Vice-Chancellor of UNILAG, Prof Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, staff and students, and the entire university community over the sad loss.

Gbajabiamila said his thoughts and prayers are with Ibidapo-Obe’s family “at this difficult moment”.
