Aggrieved members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Federal University, Oye-Ekiti (FUOYE) Chapter, yesterday passed vote of no confidence in their zonal chairman, Prof. Olu Olufayo, over alleged meddlesomeness in the affairs of the institution.
The institution’s Dons, under the aegis of Forum of Concerned Academics (FCA), while vowing to defend the image of the institution, alleged that Olufayo had continually engaged in actions capable of destroying the school.
Led by the chairman, Prof. Sola Omotola and Spokesman, Dr. Wasiu Alli, the FCA told pressmen in Ado-Ekiti yesterday that the press conference organized by the zonal chairman was aimed at destroying the university.
“The elements of blackmail and falsehood in the press conference included the claim that the university management deducted pensions from staff but failed to remit it to the appropriate pension administrators, recruitment of professors without PhD and extortion of science students.
“We had since reported the true pictures of these lies and blackmail,” the lecturers stated.
In the same vein, ASUU, Akure zone has urged the FG and other relevant agencies to caution the FUOYE VC, Prof. Kayode Soremekun, over gross abuse of office.
In a ‘State of FUOYE’ document sent to the Federal Ministry of Education, the VC was accused of gross misconduct, abuse of office, substandard infrastructure, irregular appointments and promotion of cronies, misappropriation of funds, among others.
