The incumbent deputy vice-chancellor in charge of administration at the University of Ibadan, Kayode Adebowale, has emerged as the 13th substantive vice-chancellor of the institution.

He defeated the incumbent acting vice-chancellor, Adebola Ekanola, and 14 others in a keenly contested process that took almost one year to resolve.

The chairman of the university’s governing council and former chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Odigie Oyegun, made the announcement at exactly 7:57 p.m on Thursday.

Announcing the new vice-chancellor, Mr Oyegun said Mr Adebowale emerged the best after a thorough process which he noted was witnessed by representatives of the Federal Character Commission and the Federal Ministry of Education.
