With the interview of candidates scheduled for January 21 and 23 and a Governing Council meeting for January 23 for a final decision, the Chancellor urged the governor body to act immediately.

Excerpt from the letter reads, “If the Hon. Minister is satisfied that the Governing Council is unable as a body to peacefully and harmoniously complete this important assignment in the life of any university, it would be very prudent to urgently set up an independent body under the ministry/NUC to complete the selection of the new Vice-Chancellor.”
