A Professor of Microbiology at the College of Medicine, Folasade Ogunsola, has emerged the first female Vice Chancellor of University of Lagos (UNILAG).
The development means Ogunsola, who is expected to take over from the outgoing VC, Prof. Toyin Ogundipe, next month, would be the 13th substantive Vice Chancellor of the University in the 60-year-old institution.
Ogunsola, the daughter of the late eminent geographer, Prof. Akin Mabogunje, has served the university in various capacities.
On Monday during an event to mark the beginning of a year-long celebration to mark the 60 years of the school, the Chairman of the Governing Council, Senator Lanre Tejuosho, said a new VC would be selected for the school by Friday.
He said the new person would be chosen through a credible and transparent manner and prayed that God would give the university a person that would also raise the bar of standard in the school
