The Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Universities (SSANU) has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to sack three vice-chancellors over alleged abuse of office, gross misconduct and corrupt practices.
The vice-chancellors are: Prof Olusola Oyewole of Federal University of Agriculture (FUNAAB), Prof Biyi Daramola of Federal University of Technology Akure (FUTA) and Prof. Michael Adikwu of University of Abuja(UNIABUJA).
SSANU’s national vice-president western zone, Comrade Alfred Jimoh made the call yesterday while addressing reporters at Ibadan.
He accused Oyewole of sacking SSANU members when he discovered they exposed his alleged corruption and abuse of office to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
Jimoh said: “As at the last count, he has sacked 23 members of SSANU in FUNAAB without following due process and he is still threatening to sack more.
“Yet he has not been able to disprove any of the allegations against him.
“Also in FUTA, a similar scenario is happening and Prof Daramola has been accused of corrupt practices and should be placed on suspension.
“At UNIABUJA, Adikwu has suspended the chairman and secretary of SSANU without even half salary for daring to ask questions about ongoing maladministration in the University of Abuja.”
He alleged SSANU members were being victimised for keying into the anti-corruption crusade of the current administration.
The union called for immediate recall and protection of all its members sacked by the rampaging vice chancellors.
It also demanded for immediate arraignment of the affected vice chancellors by the EFCC and ICPC.
