The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Nsukka Zone, has flayed what it described as the consistent degradation of standards by the Visitors to the Kogi State University (KSU) and the Lagos State University (LASU), Governors Yahaya Bello and Akinwunmi Ambode.
ASUU Nsukka Zone comprises Benue State University (BSU), Makurdi, Federal University of Agriculture, Makurdi (FUAM), Kogi State University, Anyigba (KSU), University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN), Enugu State University of Science and Technology, Enugu (ESUT) and Federal University Lokoja (FUL).
Addressing reporters in Ayingba, Kogi State, the ASUU chairmen in the zones called on Nigerians to prevail on the governors to call the management of the state-owned institutions to order; reverse the “illegal sack” of their colleagues and payment of their outstanding entitlements.
The union’s zonal coordinator, Prof. Ukooh David Ikoni, was supported by the Acting Chairman, ASUU-KSU, Dr. Daniel Aina; chairmen of ASUU-UNN Dr. I. M. Abada, ASUU-FUAM Dr. Veronica Jummai Ojogbane, ASUU-ESUT Dr. Chinedu Aguba and ASUU-FUL Dr. Anselm Oyem.
They said they decided to address the news conference in line with the NEC’s resolution at its meeting at the University of Abuja, from Saturday 11 to Sunday November 12, “to draw the attention of the public to the continuous breach and infringement of the fundamental human rights and threat to life and properties of our members in Kogi State University (KSU), Anyigba and Lagos State University (LASU), Ojo by the university administrations and visitors to these institutions”.
Prof. Koni said: “The continuous sack, throw out, humiliation, termination of appointments, the use of students to threaten the life and destruction of properties of our members in KSU, persistent use of security agencies to arrest and intimidate our members in LASU, have indicated the deplorable state and total mismanagement of these state universities…
“If at all our colleagues in KSU and LASU have committed any sin, it is the sin of insisting that there must be quality education for the citizens of this country and that quality education can be achieved without increase in school fees.”Fa
