Prof Adolphus Loto, the Deputy Vice Chancellor for Administration and Clinical Services at UNIMED, a state-owned university in Ondo, has been dismissed from his position.

Temitope Oluwatayo, the Assistant Registrar of the Public Relations Unit, issued a statement explaining that the dismissal was a result of Prof Loto’s misconduct, which included making frivolous, spurious, and unsubstantiated allegations against the university’s management.

Prior to the dismissal, the Governing Council had assigned a Petitions Committee to investigate the 13-page petition submitted by Prof Loto, as well as the responses from the Vice-Chancellor, Registrar, and Bursar. The committee found the allegations to be false, baseless, and detrimental to the reputation of the university, considering Prof Loto’s role as Deputy Vice Chancellor.

On April 29, 2024, the UNIMED Senate reviewed the committee’s report and recommended Prof Loto’s removal as Deputy Vice Chancellor with an overwhelming majority vote. The Governing Council subsequently approved the Senate’s resolution to dismiss Prof Adolphus Odogun Loto from the position of Deputy Vice Chancellor.
