Omoyele Sowore, the publisher of Sahara Reporters, has said the appointment of John Momoh as the acting Chairman of the Governing Council of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) is a reward for him being the media “lackey” of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Sowore made the claim in a post on Twitter on Tuesday while reacting to Momoh’s appointment.

Momoh, the Chief Executive Officer of Channels Television, was appointed as UNILAG’s Governing Council, according to a letter dated 21 August and signed by Sonny Echono, the Permanent Secretary of the Federal Ministry of Education.

But Sowore, an alumnus of UNILAG, criticised the appointment, describing it as a “sad day” for the institution.

The activist-cum-journalist said Momoh will not perform better than Wale Babalakin, the Pro-Chancellor of the university, who was asked by the Federal Government to recuse himself following the leadership crisis in the institution.
