The Governing Council of Ajayi Crowther University has appointed Professor Timothy Abiodun Adebayo as the new Vice-Chancellor of the University. He takes over from Rt. Rev. Professor Dapo F. Asaju whose tenure expires on September 30, 2020.
The Chairman of the Governing Council of the University, Chief Wole Olanipekun (SAN) announced this to the press at the end of the Council Meeting held yesterday at the Offa Meta campus of the University. Adebayo, a professor of Agriculture, was former Deputy Vice-Chancellor of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology ( LAUTECH), Ogbomosho. He will assume duty on October 2, 2020.
The Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of Governing Council, of the University, said he had high expectations from the new Vice-Chancellor given that he will step into the huge shoes left by the out-going Vice-Chancellor.
Chief Olanipekun said professor Asaju had done exceptionally well, so much so that anyone coming after him would have no choice than to keep the high standards Asaju had attained in the University, in terms of infrastructural and academic development.
