Edo varsity VC overstaying tenure, group tells Obaseki

TheGuardian: A group, Edo Consciousness (TEC), yesterday, called on Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, to visit alleged continued stay in office of the  Vice Chancellor of the Edo State University, Iyamho, Prof. Emmanuel Aluyor.
The institution’s Registrar, Habib Idris Ekhalefo, while reacting to the call on Obaseki, who is the visitor to the University, said only the governing council and the governor have the right to determine the VC’s tenure.
According to the Registrar, the petitioners  “are interlopers who have no business on the issue at stake.”In a statement signed by its ‘protem’ Chairman, Johnny Ogbode, the group said that the continued stay in office by the VC after expiration of his tenure is not tenable in law.
Ogbode called on relevant authorities to wade in to fend off any breakdown of law and order that may ensue if the situation is allowed to persist.            
He added: “The governing council was expected to appoint an acting VC on November 29, 2023 and begin the process of finding a substantive successor, but without any headway as a result of the VC’s continued stay in office.”

“The second term tenure of the VC was said to have terminated on November 28, 2023, after he served eight years.”
