NASU, SSANU Reinforce Claim, Call Principal Officers "Cabal Of Rogues"
The Obafemi Awolowo University Senior Staff Association of Nigeria University and the Non-Academic Staff Union Chairmen (Comrade Ademola Oketunde and Comrade Odewumi respectively) has described all principal officers of the Obafemi Awolowo University as Cabal of Rogues. The duo described the Officers as a cabal of rogues for allegedly following illegal processes in the appointment and adoption of the new Vice Chancellor of the University.
The NASU Chairman Comrade Wole Odewunmi stated emphatically, “We do not
want rogues in power, we want human beings”.
The two unions leaders also claimed that the Outgone Vice Chancellor Bamitale Omole hijacked the selection of the search team that gave reports on who will
become the institution VC.
In their words,
” During the selection of the Search team, the Vice Chancellor refused to allow the
Registrar conduct the Election process but he did it himself and included his own persons, we are not against Prof Salami but we need due processes to be followed..."
However, it is also worthy to note that the Registrar of the Institution and Secretary to the Governing Council has stated that due process was followed in the selection of Professor Ayo Salami, the former Deputy Vice-Chancellor Academics as the new Vice-Chancellor of the Institution.
Contradictory statements from both parties have continued to leave other members of the institution and society at large confused as to what and who to believe.
