A Sixty-Eight – year-old Professor in the Faculty of Pharmacy at the Obafemi Awolowo University Ife, Anthony Elujoba, yesterday is the University’s acting Vice Chancellor. Elujoba, an indigene of Ife, defeated his opponent, Adebayo Lamikanra, with 201 to 10 votes cast by the University Senate Members.
Lamikanra is also a Professor in the Faculty of Pharmacy. But the University workers received the news with mixed feelings. Some described Elujoba’s election as excellent. Others alleged that his choice was staged-managed by “the cabal” in the University.
