Rivalry splits ASUU

Victor Akinkuolie, Ado-Ekiti
A group at the Federal University, Oye Ekiti (FUOYE) , Ekiti State operating under the auspices of Concerned Academic Staff Union of Universities (CASUU) , has said that its members are ready to resist the politicisation and unhealthy rivalry in the union.

This is sequel to the spliting of ASUU in the institution into four groups due to high wired politics among contending forces.

The four groups are: Academic Staff Union of University (ASUU) headed by Dr. Akinyemi Omonijo, Congress of Nigeria Academics(CNA) , CASUU and New Academic Staff Union of FUOYE(NASUF).

ASUU, FUOYE chapter,  has been embroiled in crisis over the misunderstanding triggered by the anti-management stand.

A couple of weeks ago, CNA was inaugurated in the university due to the existing cracks among members.

Addressing journalists in Ado Ekiti on Thursday, the CASUU chairman, Prof Sola Omotola and Spokesman, Dr. Wasiu Oyedokun-Ali, accused ASUU, Akure Zone of fueling crisis in the university.

They said it was wrong for ASUU chairman , Akure Zone, Prof. Oludayo Olu -Olu to have taken side initially when the bedlam started to brew before it festered to this level when no fruitful mediation was made.

The group said they decided to take the bull by the horns to rescue the union from those who have decided to run it like a ‘cult’.

He debunked the allegations of illegal promotions, mismanagement of funds and gross incompetence, among other accusations leveled by Omonijo-led ASUU against the Vice Chancellor of the university, Prof Kayode Soremekun, describing them as baseless and unfounded.

Oyedokun said: “Our members felt the problem was not really about ASUU, it is about one man, Dr. Omonijo. To us, impeaching him have been the only option through which we can progress and that was where we stand.
