You are Witch-Hunting our Members – ASUU to LASU VC
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Akure Zone, in a statement has warned the vice-chancellor of Lagos State University, Prof John Obafunwa to stop victimising its members in the institution.
This was during its zonal press conference on the situation at LASU.
According to the association the actions of the Vice Chancellor are acts of witch-hunting, which the union leaders and members of the branch will no longer condone.
Excerpt of the statement signed by the coordinator of the zone and chairperson of ASUU-FUTA, Dr Alex Odiyi reads, “The administration of Prof John Obafunwa in the last few months has carried out acts of impunity and maladministration that touch on the very soul of the university. Notable among these are: Encouraging Parallel Senate through his meetings with HODs prior to Senate meetings, irregular appointment of the HODs and promotion of candidates that are neither appointable nor promotable.
“He appointed an individual as a professor with less than 15 papers contrary to the principles and rules governing promotions and appointments.
The vice chancellor subverted the University Laws and placed Professor Tunde Fatunde who is also the national president of the French Teachers Association of Nigeria on interdiction without any criminal offence”.
The association the actions of the Vice Chancellor are acts of witch-hunting, which the union leaders and members of the branch will no longer condone.
