How Committees Worded and Framed University of Lagos’ Sacked VC, Professor Ogundipe, in Their Reports to Governing Council

Our analyst has earlier reported how the crisis between Professor Oluwatoyin Ogundipe and Dr Wale Babalakin, the Chairman of the Governing Council of the University conferred complicated status on the Vice Chancellor. In the previous analysis, it also emerged that the sacked Vice Chancellor disregarded procedures, laws and misappropriated N800 million in 3 years.

In the current analysis, our analyst examines the extracts of the Committees set up by the Council to establish its position on the removal of the Vice Chancellor. The extracts, in the form of a report, had 14,382 words and 2,794 unique words. Analysis further reveals that the report has 19.4% vocabulary density, which means the report is complex with lots of unique words. This signifies that the report contains unique words that were not reused frequently.

Analysis also reveals that University (161 times) is the most frequently used words followed by total (84 times), financial (73 times), Lagos (59 times) and million (54 times). The number of times of using these words point towards the fact that the Committees worded and framed the sack Vice Chancellor within the contexts of his financial deployment towards the University’s needs and accountability after the deployment [see Exhibit 1 and 3].
