The striking staff are under the auspices of the Non-Academic Staff Union (NASU), Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) and the National Association of Academic Technologists (NAAT).
In a communique jointly signed by the leaders of the various staff unions respectively, the workers are also demanding adequate funding of the institution, appointment of a substantive vice chancellor and investigation of the allegations against Adegoke.
The communique read, “Having explored all humanly possible means in checking all the excesses of the acting vice chancellor, and having exhausted all efforts to correct all the anomalies perpetrated by him and those perpetrated under his watch, the JAC hereby declares Prof. Adegbite persona non grata.
“Prof. Adegbite should immediately step aside for investigations and probe until the appointment of a substantive vice chancellor.
“In the spirit of equality and the saying that what is good for the goose is also good for the gander, the Earned Allowances as agreed by NASU, SSANU and NAAT with the Federal Government in 2009 should be approved by the university governing council.
“The state government, as a matter of urgency, should give necessary attention to the institution and fund it adequately to save the infrastructure from total decay.
“To this end, the unions have vowed not to resume duty until all demands are met by the state government and the school authorities,” the unions stated.
