UNIMED sacks Deputy VC for laying false allegations against management

The Deputy Vice-Chancellor of Administration and Clinical Services, University of Medical Sciences, UNIMED, Ondo State, Professor Adolphus Loto, has been sacked by the institution following a false petition filed against the university’s management.

Loto was dismissed by the institution’s governing council after the investigation over the allegations were discovered to be false and misleading against the university’s management.

In a statement by the spokesperson of the institution, Temitope Oluwatayo, he disclosed that UNIMED upholds the highest standards of ethical conduct and accountability, stressing that any actions capable of undermining the institution’s credibility will not be tolerated.

Oluwatayo emphasised that the Deputy Vice-Chancellor’s act was deemed a breach of trust and integrity, adding that the decisive action was made in the best interest of the university and its commitment to upholding transparency and integrity.

“The decision of the Senate was predicated on the former DVC’s unbecoming conduct, including frivolous, spurious, and unsubstantiated allegations against the university management.

“The Petitions Committee of Council, PCC, found the allegations untrue, baseless, embarrassing to the university community, and liable to bring the university into disrepute, given Prof. Loto’s position as the Deputy Vice-Chancellor.

“UNIMED Senate, on Monday, April 29, 2024, considered the report of the PCC and recommended the removal of Prof. Loto as the Deputy Vice-Chancellor by an overwhelming majority, with 100 percent of the voters approving his removal as DVC Admin.
