ASUU raises alarm on 'plan' to sack members in UNILORIN

Date: 2017-07-11

The Ibadan Zone of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has raised alarm on an alleged move by the University of Ilorin (UNILORIN) Governing Council to terminate the appointments of its top members. The union said its members, who blew the whistle to expose alleged unwholesome practices in the school, were being subjected to official victimisation by the school management, noting that UNILORIN has become a lawless body that shows no regard for rule of law.

ASUU fingered the outgoing UNILORIN Vice-Chancellor (VC), Prof Abdulganiyu Ambali, as the mastermind of the plot, pointing out that the lecturers' body would not be suppressed in exposing the Ambali's "shady dealings" despite victimisation against its members.

In a statement titled: Planned sack of ASUU whistle blowers in UNILORIN by Governing Council, signed by the Zonal Coordinator, Dr Ade Adejumo, ASUU urged the UNILORIN Governing Council chairman, Dr. Jubril Oyekan, to resist being dragged into the crisis, adding that effort should be made to rescue the school from sliding further into infamy.

It named the officials as the ASUU chairman in UNILORIN, Dr. Kolawole Afolayan, and Secretary, Dr. Solomon Oyelekan, who were suspended.

ASUU urged the Governing Council members not to bow to the pressure to terminate the appointments of the affected staff. The lecturers' body called on the Federal Government and supervising agencies to prevail on the school to stop the "continuous harassment of critical voices of dissent" in the university.
