Nigeria: ASUU Warns Unilorin Against Sharing N987 Million Allowance

Ibadan — The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has warned the authorities of the University of Ilorin (Unilorin) not to share the N986.7 million earned allowance disbursed to it by the Federal Government until the ASUU strike is over.

Speaking in Ibadan, the Zonal Coordinator of ASUU Ilorin Zone Dr Ayan Adeleke said the authentic ASUU chairman of Unilorin Dr. Taiwo Oloruntoba-Oju had already conveyed the position of the union to the Vice-Chancellor of the University, Prof AbdulGaniyu Ambali.

He said the struggle for funding is still ongoing and that “universities should not betray the struggle by disbursing the earned allowances until the struggle is over.”

It was gathered that workers in the University of Ilorin early Wednesday started a discussion on modalities for sharing the schools’ share of the N30 billion disbursed to it by the Federal Government.

Dr Adeleke who denounced the Professor Wahab Egbewole faction added that “the group had been declared illegal by the National Industrial Court, adding that whatever they are doing is illegal”.

Also speaking Dr Segun Ajiboye, Chairman of ASUU in the University of Ibadan said “it is the height of immorality for these fellows in Ilorin to be squabbling over the proceeds of a struggle that they did not participate in.”
