The communique said “NEC noted various allegations against Pro-Chancellors, Vice-Chancellors and Councils, involved in fraudulent actions, illegal appointments, shady contracts, diversion of funds, and other corrupt practices and agreed that the level of rot and sleaze in our University system needs to be checked, as our ivory towers are now havens of corruption being run by greedy, inept, incompetent and rapacious administrators.

“The Honourable Minister of Education, must put the issue of corruption in the front-burner of his engagements, investigate all reports brought to his attention and not spare any University official found indicted.

“To this end, SSANU requests the Visitor(s) to our Universities to urgently constitute Visitation Panels to review the affairs of these Universities, and where Visitation Panels have presented reports, come up with White-Papers of the Reports for implementation.”
