Wife of the immediate past Vice Chancellor of University of Benin (UNIBEN), Mrs. Otasowie Oshodin, has been appointed Registrar of the university.
The appointment of Mrs. Oshodin which was announced on Monday by the Governing Council of the University, will however take effect from 7 May, 2015, when the tenure of the incumbent Registrar, Dr (Mrs) G.O. Ogboghodo will expired.
It was reliably gathered that Mrs. Oshodin’s appointment as Registrar ought to have taken effect during the tenure of her husband, Prof. Osayuki Oshodin as Vice Chancellor of the University, but her appointment was deffered in order not to have a husband and wife as VC and Registrar of the same university at the same time.
The University’s Governing Council in a statement signed by Mrs. Ogboghodo, said: “The Governing Council of the University of Benin has appointed Mrs Otasowie Oshodin as the eight substantive Registrar of the University, with effect from 7th May, 2015, when the 5 years tenure of the incumbent Registrar expires.
“Mrs Otasowie Oshodin, spouse to the immediate past Vice Chancellor of the University, Prof.O.G.Oshodin (JP) brings to the job vast experience gained as Deputy Registrar, Council and Committee, Deputy Registrar, Staff Training and Labour Relations, her immediate last posting, amongst several others.”
