Pro-Chancellor Federal University Of Agriculture, Abeokuta Resigns

Published

on

A former Minister of Works, Senator Adeseye Ogunlewe, has resigned his appointment as the Pro-Chancellor of the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, Ogun State.

Ogunlewe, who notified our correspondent of his resignation in an interview on Wednesday, cited personal reasons for his decision.

The former minister, the Vice-Chancellor of FUNAAB, Prof. Olusola Oyewole; and the Bursar of the institution, Mr. Moses Ilesanmi, were recently arraigned before the Ogun State High Court, Abeokuta on 18 counts, bordering on conspiracy, stealing, obtaining money by false pretences and abuse of office.

They had pleaded not guilty to the charges.

On Wednesday, shortly after tendering his resignation, Ogunlewe, however, said his resignation was not connected to the EFCC case.

He said, “I have decided to resign my appointment as Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of Council, Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta with immediate effect. This is due to personal reasons.

“I sincerely thank the Federal Government for giving me the opportunity to serve. The Federal Government should please accept the assurances of my best regards.”

The former minister was appointed as the pro-chancellor of the institution in February 2013 by former President Goodluck Jonathan.
