The recently reinstated Vice-Chancellor of the University of Lagos, Prof Oluwatoyin Ogundipe has said he is compiling the list of workers for sacking.

President Buhari ordered for the reinstatement of Ogundipe after he was sacked by the Governing Council of UNILAG led by Dr Wale Babalakin. This news was welcomed with jubilation by UNILAG workers.

Ogundipe has announced as he resumed work on Thursday at the school's Senate Building that he is not compiling a list of staff members for sacking.

Ogundipe first urged the workers to be united and committed. "Our commitment must be in moving the university forward, and we must unite. Some people are saying that I have a list of people I want to sack and punish.

"I have no such list. Let's work together and move the university forward. You ave invested years of your lives into this university.

"It is not about the academic or non-academic staff; it's about moving the university forward".

Ogundipe also thanked the President, Muhammadu Buhari for insisting that due process must be followed during the whole saga.

"My return to office is not by power but by divine intervention", he said. Ogundipe also described the former acting VC Prof. Folasade Ogunsola as a reliable and honest scholar.

"People think they can divide us, let me say this openly, they don't know we communicate. She has done excellently well and she is reliable".

Prof Ogunsola whole handing over to Ogundipe said, "We welcome back the VC. I am formerly handing over to the VC.

"Today is the day of victory, it calls for introspection. Together we can stand, divided we fall. Nobody can de-brand us and UNILAG is bigger than anybody".
