Crisis Looms In UI As ASUU Wants Bursar Sacked
Crisis is looming in the University of Ibadan as ASUU has called for the suspension of their Bursar, Michael Alatise.
He has been accused of refusing the directive of the Vice Chancellor, Professor Idowu Olayinka to pay deserving academic staff their earned allowances.
ASUU therefore said that the earned academic allowances must be paid ‘on or before Monday 12 December 2017’.
The Federal Government had disbursed the sum of N1,626,117,386.20 for payment to deserving academic staff of the University of Ibadan to offset the 2009/2010 session of the 2009 ASUU/FGN agreements.
The Union also noted that the failure of the Bursar to immediately pay members verified Earned Academic Allowances claims as approved by the Vice Chancellor amounts to gross insubordination and flagrant disobedience.
In the resolution of the Congress of ASUU signed by the Chairman, Dr Deji Omole and Secretary, Peter Olapegba, the congress asked the Vice Chancellor to approach the Governing Council with a request to suspend the Bursar immediately.
The congress has also empowered the leadership of ASUU to approach the necessary “government agencies to enforce payment in case the University Administration fails to effect payment of the EAA”.
