ASUU Shelves Planned Industrial Action.
Members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has shelved their plan to embark on an industrial action to press home its demand for the fulfillment of the agreement it reached with the federal government last year.
This was disclosed by the National president of ASUU, Professor Abiodun Ogunyemi, during an interview with newsmen in Ilorin, at the weekend on the sidelines of ‘‘Day of Tributes’’ held in honour of the late Prof Samson Olatunde Oduleye who was a member of the UNILORIN 49+.
The ASUU president, demanded for an evidence from the federal government to show that the balance of the N25 billion earned academic allowances earlier released to universities had been ‘‘mainstreamed in the 2019 budget’’.
He also called on authorities of university of Ilorin to tender an apology to deceased and other victims of Unilorin 49+ vindicated by the supreme court judgement over illegal terminations of their appointments.
Ogunyemi, added that the Supreme Court’s judgement which favoured the affected lecturers were enough for the university management to admit that it ‘‘acted wrongly and should own up to its wrong doing’’.
Oduleye, was a former chairman of ASUU, Unilorin Chapter, he died at the aged 75.
