ASUU recently indicated its stance after the end of a meeting on Monday, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to the union, the sack wasn’t in tandem with due process, therefore his decision cannot be allowed to stand.
ASUU added that they are now requesting an urgent review to restore the image of the university, else their integrity will be questioned.
His words, “Based on the content of the press release, a congress of the Union was held on Monday (19/04/2021) and registered its displeasure at the said press release because it violated the provisions of the University Miscellaneous Act as amended, Ladoke Akintola University of Technology law 2020 and the University conventions.”
“That if there is any perceived misdemeanour on the part of any officer appointed by the law in the University, due process according to the law must be followed to address such.“
“That the Union acknowledges the power of the Visitor to hire and fire on one part and that such power is premised on the recommendation of the Governing Council according to the extant laws.”
“That as of today, the Governing Council has not been properly constituted in line with the law of the university.”
“Our union, therefore, requests that to maintain industrial harmony on campus and the ongoing restoration of the image of the university, the above resolutions should be considered with the necessary urgency.”
