Barring any change of plan, the head of the Biological Science in the School of Pure and Applied Science of Lagos State Polytechnic, Dr Nurudeen Olaleye, may be announced today as the next Rector of the institution.
According to The IMPACT, Olaleye scored 86 per cent, the highest mark in the final screening held for the aspirants for the plum job on Tuesday, September 29, 2020.
It was gathered from authoritative sources that his appointment will be announced by noon today.
It was also gathered that Olaleye is the choice of the leaderships of the three staff unions in the institution since the jostling for the position took off after the expiration of the tenure of the immediate past controversial Rector, Mr Samuel Sogunro.
The Muslim community in the Polytechnic, which is a major power broker in the state academic community, also threw their weight behind him being a strong pillar of the community.
The academic, who also wields strong political influence, is an ally of the Minister of Interior and former Governor of State of Osun, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola.
