FUOYE, ASUU crisis worsens as aggrieved lecturers disrupt congress
The crisis rocking the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) of the Federal University Oye Ekiti chapter worsened on Tuesday when aggrieved members disrupted a congress presided over by the zonal chairman of the union, Akure branch Prof Olu Olu.
The aggrieved lecturers insisted the embattled chairman of the chapter Dr. Akinyemi Omonijo must step aside first before any congress would hold on the campus.
Plusmila gathered the congress of the academic union was about to hold at about 1pm at the venue on Tuesday when angry members stormed the venue to stop the meeting, rang bell, made so much noise and chased away those who wanted it to hold.
A leader of the union and Dean of Faculty of Arts of the university, Dr. Popoola Tajudeen, who spoke about the cause of the disruption said: “There was to be a congress but there was no congress because our members felt strongly that Prof Olu Olu who has been part of our problem in this chapter should not now come to foist any congress on us and they insisted that he cannot hold any congress when the chairman of our chapter that he is imposing on us has committed impeachment offences.
