FUOYE council found ex-registrar wanting – VC
The Vice-Chancellor, Federal University Oye-Ekiti, Prof. Abayomi Fasina, on Sunday said he had nothing to do with the sacking of the institution’s former registrar, Mr Olatunbosun Odusanya.
He added that Odusanya was sacked by the university’s Governing Council.
Fasina advised Odusanya “to stop misleading the public over events leading to the termination of his appointment by the FUOYE Governing Council headed by Dr Mohammad Yahuza.”
Recall that the registrar was suspended from office on April 20, 2021, to pave the way for investigations into allegations of misconduct levelled against.
Odusanya, in his reaction to the sacking, had accused the VC of being behind his predicament.
But the VC, in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media Matters, Wole Balogun, titled, ‘I am not responsible for your misfortune, VC replies sacked Registrar’, said, “What happened to Odusanya leading to the termination of his appointment was simply a clear case of gross misconduct that bothered on his flagrant violation of the rules and regulations of the university regarding recruitment of staff.
“The authority that found him wanting is the Governing Council of the university ably chaired by Dr Yahuza. The governing council is above me as the highest authority of the university. It was the council that constituted the probe panel that investigated Odusanya’s misconduct.”
He added, “Attributing the consequences of his inactions to vendetta against him from me clearly amounts to character assassination and defamation on his part against my person. I advise him to desist from such unnecessary and fruitless voyage.”
CONUA demands refund, says members’ dues paid to ASUU
The leadership of the Congress of University Academics has alleged that check off dues deducted from its members’ salaries were remitted to the Academic Staff Union of Universities.
A statement by the CONUA National Coordinator, Dr Niyi Sunmonu, on Sunday said members of the group complained that dues deducted from their salaries were remitted to ASUU, a union they did not belong to.
Sunmonu urged the Accountant General of the Federation to ensure the refund of what had been deducted from CONUA members, saying it was against the tenets of the law to deduct check off dues of CONUA members for ASUU.
He said CONUA had also requested a stoppage of the remittance of CONUA members’ check off dues to ASUU, and expressed hope that the matter would be urgently addressed.
The statement read in parts, “The leadership of ASUU through its president unilaterally withdrew money running into millions of naira in 2017 from the account of the OAU branch. This illegal act necessitated the request to stop check off dues deduction.
“I urge the Accountant General of the Federation to ensure the refund of what had been deducted from CONUA members. It is inappropriate and against the tenets of the law to deduct check off dues of CONUA members for a union they do not belong to
“CONUA is an independent academic staff union in Nigerian universities. Hence, remitting CONUA members’ dues to another union is tantamount to an attempt to financially strangulate it.”
