|AAUA Finally Recruits New Lecturers To Replace Striking Ones by kado(m): 12:28am On Dec 08, 2013|
The crisis between the embattled members
of the Academic Staff Union of Universities
[ASUU], Adekunle Ajasin University
[AAUA], Ondo state and their management
is now deepened as new lecturers have been
employment to replace the striking lecturers.
Recall that when DailyPost visited the
campus last Monday, some old lecturers were
seen in various lecture rooms teaching ,
thinking the AAUA authorities and the
striking workers have agreed to end the five
months old strike.
However, with a statement later issued by
the AAUA ASUU’s Chairman, Dr. Meruyi
Mekusi, insisting that they will not call off
the strike until their national body orders
them to do so might have forced the
management to recruit new lecturers.
Relatively, the Vice Chancellor of the
institution, Prof. Femi Mimiko, has charged
the newly recruited lecturers to key into the
work ethics of the Institution and always
observe the values of the teaching
Prof. Mimiko, who also enjoined the
academics to be loyal to the University at all
times, gave the charge on Monday last week
at the Opening Ceremony of a two-day
orientation programme organized by the
Institution for the new academics.
The VC said, “Our expectations from you on
the job are to be in constant search for
knowledge and devise the innovative way of
dissemination. There must not be mention of
you in anything that is not worthy. Be role
models to students and enhance their moral
standard. You must be like counselors to
them at all times. Be shapers of opinions.
Engage in constructive criticism of society.
Be solution generators. Be focused and play a
big role in national development.
“AAUA is a public trust that is dedicated to
building leaders. You must, therefore, be
loyal to the system. We expect you to give to
this University an undiluted loyalty. We just
launched AAUA ALWAYS as a new campaign.
The message is that you must think about
this University at all times.”
While the VC commended them for being
found worthy of employment after rigorous
interviews, he said that the orientation
became necessary to expose them to AAUA
He said, “This induction is to expose you to
our own peculiar form of pedagogy that we
want you to imbibe and to continue to
The VC was one of the four resource persons
at the orientation programme and he spoke
on “Who is an Academic?” He said the new
intakes were supposed to teach, engage in
research and community service.
Prof. Mimiko urged those among them who
were yet to earn Ph. D. to pursue it
vigorously, saying, “For us, Ph. D. is a must
have. Those who are yet to possess the Ph. D.
should know that the most important thing
that we will ask when you get here is, ‘How
far you are going in the pursuit of
knowledge, leading to the award of the Ph.
He promised that the University would give
them support to undertake Ph.D. Programme
in any University of their choice.
Other speakers were the Deputy Vice
Chancellor, Prof. Rotimi Ajayi, who spoke on
“Academic Profession in the 21st Century”;
Prof. Francis Oyebade, who examined “AAUA
Academic Culture”; and Prof. Niyi Akinnaso,
who spoke on “21st Century Teaching”.
