Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) at the University of Ibadan (UI) has called for the suspension of the Bursar, Michael Alatise, for allegedly refusing directives of the Vice Chancellor, Prof Idowu Olayinka, to pay lecturers their earned allowances.
ASUU said the earned academic allowances must be paid “on or before Monday 12 December, 2017” by the institution or it would face the wrath of the union.
The Federal Government disbursed N1,626,117,386.20 to pay deserving lecturers to offset the 2009/2010 session of the 2009 ASUU/Federal Government agreements.
The union noted that the failure of the Bursar to pay its members as approved by the vice chancellor, amounted to insubordination and disobedience of a lawful directive.
In the resolution signed by its Chairman, Dr. Deji Omole, and Secretary, Peter Olapegba, ASUU urged the vice chancellor to approach the Governing Council with a request to suspend the Bursar for refusing to carry out a lawful directive, which is creating a crisis in the institution. Read more
