The Senate of the University of Ibadan has passed vote of confidence in the ongoing process to appoint a new vice Chancellor of the Institution.

This was part of resolutions reached at an emergency meeting of the Senate held at the International conference centre of the Institution in Ibadan.

Addressing newsmen shortly after the meeting, Senate Representative in the University of Ibadan Governing Council, Professor Oluyemisi Bamgbose, SAN, said the electoral process was in accordance with exant laws and should be concluded.

According to Professor Bamgbose, the disruption of the electoral process on the twenty eighth of last month by the Non Academic Staff Union, NASU and the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian University, SSANU was unfortunate and regrettable.

While pointing out that labour Unions have no roles to play in the appointment of Vice Chancellors, Professor Bamgbose stated that the resolution also called for the constitution of a disciplinary procedure against erring members of staff.

Professor Bamgbose said other decisions reached at the meeting were the need to pacify those who were injured during the disruption pending the outcome of the internal disciplinary measures and a visit to the the Minister of education, Adamu Adamu.

Radio Nigeria correspondent reports that SSANU and NASU had last Wednesday disrupted the final proceedings for the selection of a new Vice Chancellor of the University of Ibadan over allegations of imposing a candidate on the Institution through faulty process.

One hundred and eighty eight members of Senate attended the Emergency meeting.
