The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) on Wednesday accused the Vice-Chancellor, Lagos State University, Prof. John Obafunwa, of not possessing a PhD and holding two jobs.

Dr Adesola Nasir, ASUU’s Zonal Coordinator, Lagos Zone, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that apart from being LASU’s VC, Obafunwa was also the Chief Medical Examiner of Lagos State.

He said it was an aberration to the laws setting up a university for it to be headed by a personality without a PhD certificate.

“The vice-chancellor could not run LASU as he ought to, because he lacks the capability to do so,” the ASUU official said.

In his reaction, Prof. Obafunwa described the allegation of his non-possession of a PhD as “ignorance at its height.”

Obafunwa said if anyone was questioning his education as to the PhD/Fellowship issue, that person should contact the National Universities Commission (NUC).

The LASU Vice-Chancellor said the claim of the union was another demonstration of ignorance that requires no comments, stressing: “I need not enter into political discourse.”

Obafunwa listed some Nigerian universities with vice-chancellors in the Medical field as the University of Ibadan, the University of Nigeria, Nsukka; the Federal University, Lokoja; Osun State University and LASU. (NAN)
