OAU Council Restructures Legal Unit and Renames Physical Planning and Development Unit
The University Council has approved the restructuring of the Legal Unit of the University to reflect the realities of the 21st Century legal practices in the University sector. The Unit is now to be known as Directorate of Legal Services and to be headed by a Chief Law Officer (formerly Deputy Registrar, Legal). Other Legal Officers in the Directorate have been redesignated appropriately.
It also recently approved the renaming of the Physical Planning and Development Unit (PPDU). The Unit is now to be known as Capital Projects and Development Unit (CPDU). Members of the University community are therefore advised to note these changes in their subsequent communication with the above Units.
