The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) in the University of Ibadan has called for the suspension of its Bursar, MICHAEL ALATISE for allegedly refusing the directive of the Vice Chancellor, Professor IDOWU OLAYINKA to pay deserving academic staff their Earned Academic Allowances (EAA).
ASUU therefore said that the earned academic allowances must be paid on or before Monday 12 December, 2017.
The Federal Government had disbursed the sum of 1.626billion naira for payment to deserving academic staff of the University of Ibadan to offset the 2009/2010 session of the 2009 ASUU/FGN agreements.
The Union however noted that the failure of the Bursar to immediately pay members’ verified Earned Academic Allowances claims as approved by the VC amounted to gross insubordination and flagrant disobedience of lawful directive.
In the resolution of the Congress of ASUU signed by the Chairman, Dr DEJI OMOLE and Secretary, PETER OLAPEGBA, the congress asked the Vice Chancellor to approach the Governing Council with a request to suspend the Bursar immediately for his refusal to carry out the directive which is already creating avoidable crisis in the University.
The congress also empowered the leadership of ASUU to approach the necessary “government agencies to enforce payment in case the University Administration fails to effect payment of the EAA”
