ASUU Rejects Buhari's Dissolution Of OAU Governing Council by babulicious: 8:05pm On Oct 19, 2016

The Academic Staff Union of Universities has faulted President Muhammadu Buhari’s dissolution of the governing council of the Obafemi Awolowo University following a leadership tussle in the institution in July.
ASUU said the dissolution of the council and the removal of Ayobami Salami as vice chancellor contravened an agreement reached between the union and the federal government.
The union’s position was based on the report of its visitation committee set up by its National Executive Council (NEC) and submitted at a meeting of the union at the Ambrose Ali University, Ekpoma, last Friday.
The committee said the council, which was dissolved, was duly constituted and should not have been tampered with.

“The Governing Council followed the process of selection of Vice Chancellor to its conclusion,” it noted.
The committee also recommended the condemnation of the action by the national headquarters of ASUU stating that the action of President Buhari breached the university autonomy agreement reached between the federal government and ASUU.
The committee headed by the national vice president of ASUU, Emmanuel Osodeke, had eight members, including two zonal coordinators and three immediate past zonal coordinators.
The Non-Academic Staff Union of Universities, NASU, had approached a Federal High Court in Osogbo in the wake of the crisis, demanding that the processes that led to the emergence of Mr. Salami as vice chancellor be discarded and deemed illegal.
The ensuing protests and legal battles led to the intervention of the federal government and subsequent dissolution of the institution’s governing council on July 1, 2016 after Mr. Salami was asked to step aside pending the determination of the suit at the court.
The Public Relations Officer of the University, Olanrewaju Abiodun, disagreed with ASUU, arguing that the institution is owned by the Federal Government.
“Federal Government owns the university and has the right to determine the vice chancellor of the university,” he told PREMIUM TIMES.
“The same ASUU was in OAU when President Buhari ordered the appointment of an acting vice chancellor; only the federal government can determine who is the vice chancellor of the university”.
However, the Federal High Court Osogbo on October 10 transferred the case involving NASU and OAU to the National Industrial Court, Ibadan, after declaring that it lacked jurisdiction to hear the case.
The decision by ASUU has pitched the other unions against it as NASU and the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, SSANU, have rejected the report and its recommendations.
NASU’s chairman, Wole Odewumi, said the decision of the Federal High Court inu Osogbo was in the union’s favour, vowing to resist any effort to restore Mr. Salami as vice chancellor.

The Chairman of ASUU, OAU branch, Caleb Aborisade, said he would not add further comments on what had been stated in the report.
But his SSANU counterpart, Ademola Oketunde, rejected the report, saying ASUU had no right to determine who becomes vice chancellor of the institution.
“What right does ASUU have to say a particular Prof Salami should return as the vice chancellor? Are they the Federal Government?” he said.

“We would fight this to the last, I am daring ASUU national body, we also have national bodies. Obafemi Awolowo University cannot receive Prof. Salami again, we would rather fight it out. I am also a stakeholder in the university and the statement of ASUU holds no water.”
Another member of NASU who spoke under anonymity, said “Prof Salami can never set his foot on Obafemi Awolowo University Senate Building, we would rather shut down the University, it is impossible.”
Prof. Salami has however hailed the position of ASUU, saying he had been vindicated.

“I am still studying the decision ,I am studying it,” he said when asked by PREMIUM TIMES how he felt about the report of the visitation committee.

ASUU is a group of senseless and jobless staff who under the ASUU does fulfil their political motive. No wonder Oloyede asked Unilorin to leave the association. I believe this wasn't now. It Is close to two months. So what is the wahala?

Some folks whose hearts were shattered & had their cerebral fluid drained on the 28th of March 2015 no longer bother to find out the background of a story... All they need to see is Buhari & their psychosis increases exponentially.

Workers of the university under the aegis of Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) and Non-Academic Staff of Universities (NASU) of OAU had begun their protests and strike since June 6, after taking the university authorities to court over the appointment of Salami as the new vice chancellor.

However, NUC Executive Secretary, in a terse statement on Monday, said: “President directs Senate of OAU to appoint acting vice chancellor.

“President directs reopening of all offices in OAU for normal administrative and academic activities.”

Meanwhile, the Public Relations Officer, Mr Abiodun Olanrewaju of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Mr Abiodun Olanrewaju told Nigerian Tribune on Monday that “what really happened is that the Federal Government announced the dissolution of the governing council and also instructed that the processes that may lead to the appointment of a substantive vice chancellor be put on hold, pending the determination of the court case; and the follow-up to that is what the Federal Government did today by telling us that the Senate of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, should immediately recommend a qualified person for appointment as an acting vice chancellor for the university. That is where we are now.. .

The letter further says the Senate of the university should take immediate steps to implement the directive of the President and report back to the Federal Ministry of Education.

Workers and students of the institution recently trooped out in jubilation following the dissolution of the school’s governing council and the suspension of the selection of the vice chancellor by the federal government.

According to the staff and students, the federal government’s decision was a step towards the redemption and integrity of the institution, which for weeks had been hit by crisis after the exit of the immediate past Vice Chancellor, Prof Bamitale Omole

ASUU is always confused,they cannot maintain peace on campus,i feel federal government helps to bring order to the reckless activities of the VCs,they should equally visit other universities where council members are sitting everyday contrary to FGs directives.
