This was contained in a letter dated April 16, 2021, by the Commissioner for Education, Science, and Technology, Olasunkanmi Olaleye.

“His Excellency, Engr. Seyi Makinde, the Governor of Oyo State and the visitor to the Ladoke Akintola University, has directed that the Vice Chancellor of the institution, Prof. M. O. Ologunde should step aside until further notice,” the letter reads.
