No fewer than 61 professors that applied for the position of the Vice-Chancellor of the Federal University Lokoja were disqualified for not meeting the advert criteria.
The Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of the Governing Board, Senator Chris Adighije revealed this over the weekend.
Adighije, who spoke to select journalists in Abuja, also dismissed the allegations that 10 professors from one tribe in Kogi State were disqualified.
According to him, there was no criteria to know the tribe of any applicants in the short listing.
He said, of the 81 applicants that submitted applications, only 20 were shortlisted for screening.
The former lawmaker revealed that the screening would commence middle of the month.
Speaking on the shortlisting, he noted that, “The council unanimously approved the list, there was no dissenting voice. So 20 candidates will face the Selection board.”For information on Press Releases, Photos, Promotional Events and Adverts, Please Call or Send a Text to 09052129258, 08124662170 or send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
