Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Ogundipe was on Wednesday, August 12, sacked by the school's governing council.

Ogundipe's removal was announced on Wednesday in Abuja during a meeting attended by members of the council.

The said meeting was presided over by the university's pro-chancellor and chairman of the council, Wale Babalakin, who is also a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN).

Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 had condemned demands by some states that students should present the results of their coronavirus test before they could be allowed to return to the classroom.

Legit.ng reported that the PTF said it was “far more important to monitor” every resuming pupil for symptoms of coronavirus than making negative COVID-19 test result a requirement for each pupil to return to the classroom.

It was earlier reported that parents of pupils in private secondary schools in Ogun state on Sunday, August 2, kicked against the request of N25,000 COVID-19 test fee by the government.

Sani Aliyu, the national coordinator of PTF, while reacting on Monday, August 3, during a briefing in Abuja, informed that a negative COVID-19 test result is only valid for the moment it was conducted.

He, therefore, advised school administrators to rather watch out for symptoms of the virus among pupils and ask such pupils to seek medical attention.
