A female UI lecturer petitions the Senate, VC is summoned

The Senate has summoned the Vice Chancellor of the University of Ibadan, Prof Kayode Adebowale, in connection with an alleged attack, conspiracy, and victimization of a female lecturer in the Department of Microbiology, Dr Adenike Ogunshe.

The directive was made by the Senate’s Ethics, Privileges, and Public Petitions Committee at a panel hearing in Abuja.

Senator Ayo Akinyelure, the committee’s Chairman, stated that Ogunshe had sent a petition to the Senate, appealing for reinstatement after her appointment was terminated by the institution almost seven years ago.

In her appeal, Ogunshe asked the Senate to require the university administration to comply with a court ruling ordering her reinstatement.

The lecturer stated that the termination of her appointment had cost her the potential to become Nigeria’s first female professor of microbiology.

As a result, she encouraged the Senate to interview the university’s Vice Chancellor and Registrar.

At the previous panel meeting, the committee chairman read a portion of her appeal in which Ogunshe claimed there was a grand plot against her.

Akinyelure expressed disappointment that multiple invitations given to university officials to testify before his panel had resulted in no beneficial results.

He stated that if the Vice Chancellor fails to appear in person before the panel at the next sitting, the Senate may impose appropriate punishment.

Akinyelure went on to say that the institution’s penalties would include withholding funds from the premier university.
