The Senate of the University of Ibadan has revealed that members of the institution’s branch of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) and Non-Academic Staff Union (NASU) will be punished for participating in protests.
OYOINSIGHT.COM recalls that the unions last week protested against the alleged plan to impose the Deputy Vice Chancellor, Professor Kayode Adebowale as the next Vice Chancellor .
However, after an emergency meeting on Wednesday, the Senate declared that the unions have no business interfering in the selection process of new Vice-Chancellor of the University.
A former Dean of the Faculty of Law, Professor Oluyemisi Bamgbose, who spoke on behalf of the Senate said they are in support of the ongoing process .
“The unions do not have role to play in appointment of VC.
“The action of SSANU, NASU on Wednesday, 28th October, was condemned in its strong terms.
“Senate should appoint some representatives to visit Minister of Education to give him a copy of our resolution.
“That the normal University disciplinary procedure should be taken to deal with erring staff.
“That UI dissociates itself from activities of SSANU and NASU,” she said.
