It was a double celebration at the University of Lagos on Monday as Professor Folasade Ogunsola, FAS celebrated her birthday as well as her first day in office as the new VC.
The 13th Vice Chancellor of the University had members of the University community come out to rejoice with her, as she described it “as a special moment in her life”.
Although Professor Ogunsola had started work on Saturday, November 12, 2022, after meeting with Directors, Deans, and Heads of Department, Monday marked her first day in office as the new VC of the institution. She also revealed her plans for the University in the same meeting.
That meeting was followed by the first Professor Ogunsola-led Management Meeting which was held on the 10th Floor of the Senate House.
Professor Folasade Ogunsola is the first female Vice Chancellor of the institution since 1962.
The Medical Microbiologist had previously served under the 11th VC, Professor Rahman Bello, FAEng and the immediate past VC, Professor Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, FAS.
