SSANU, NASU protest appointment of new VC
The appointment of Salami, who is deputy vice chancellor (Academics) , was announced by the Governing Council of the university at a meeting on Monday in Abuja.
This appointment has been greeted with some protest from the non-teaching staff of the university, including Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) and Non Academic Staff Union (NASU).
The workers yesterday embarked on protest against the choice of Prof. Salami.
The protesters alleged that Salami was sponsored to replace Prof. Bamitale Omole “to cover his deeds in office."
The workers alleged that Prof. Omole “mismanaged money” belonging to the university.
The situation degenerated to a stage where the workers reportedly chased their colleagues out of their offices and even locked some of them in.
The protest affected ongoing orientation courses for the university’s fresh students, who just resumed two weeks ago.
