The Governing Council of Osun State University (UNIOSUN) has announced Prof. Odunayo Clement Adebooye as the fourth substantive Vic-Chancellor of the University.

Adebooye’s appointment comes about two months after his predecessor, Prof. Labode Popoola completed his tenure since November 4, 2021 as a result of controversy that dogged the selection process.

For the two month gap, a Don of the university Professor Bello was acting as vice-chancellor.

A statement by the University’s Public Relations Officer, Ademola Adesoji, quoted the Governing Council Chair, Mallam Yusuf Ali (SAN) as saying the selection process that produced the Professor of Plant Physiology was rigorous.

 “I am happy that despite the controversies surrounding the appointment process, the Council was able to exert rigorous efforts and sacrifice in the appointment procedures, which culminated in the appointment of Prof. Odunayo Clement Adebooye. We believe that he possesses the attributes to move the University forward and write a fresh chapter in the journey to achieve the dreams of the founding fathers of the University”, he said.

Born on December 18, 1966, Adebooye has spent over two decades at UNIOSUN as a member of the Governing Council, Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Provost/Dean, Director, and Head of Department among others.

He has been a Visiting Professor to many universities in Nigeria, and abroad (Germany, Canada) and provides services for the United Nations.
