38 Profs Petition UI VC Over ‘Anti-Muslim’ Policies

Few days after the Nigeria Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs, NSCIA, accused the management of the University of Ibadan, UI, of promoting anti-Muslim policies, about 38 Muslim professors from the university have petitioned the Prof. Idowu Olayinka-led administration of the university over what they described as a deliberate action of denying Muslims participation in various important statutory meetings.
Premium Times quoted the professors as saying that the university fixed its Senate meeting for Friday and that the meeting extended beyond the time meant for Muslim Friday prayer.
They said the tradition since the tenure of a former vice-chancellor, A.B Odediran, was that the hours of noon to 3 p.m should be free of any statutory academic and administrative activities on the campus, adding that the position was backed by a university special release of August 23, 2010, which they claimed banned lectures, meetings, and other statutory engagements on the campus during those hours.
The university, however, denied the allegation, saying the meeting was not fixed for the time designated for Friday prayer.
