Gov. Obaseki Vs AAU STAFF: ASUU Raises Alarm Of Plot By Obaseki To Impose Sole Administrator On AAU


The Ambrose Alli University (AAU), Ekpoma, Edo State Chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has raised an alarm of a plot by the state government to impose a sole administrator on the institution.

In a joint statement yesterday in Ekpoma by Dr Monday Igbafen and Dr Anthony Coker-Aizebioje, Chairperson and Secretary respectively and made available to journalists in Benin, the union faulted the recent appointment of Prof. Benson Osadolor as the acting Vice-Chancellor following the expiration of the tenure of Prof. Ignatius Onimawo, the immediate past Vice-Chancellor of the school. 

While identifying the major problems facing the university to include politicization, neglect and gross underfunding, ASUU called on Governor Obaseki to urgently address the problems of workers/pensioners in the university with particular reference to payment of outstanding salaries of five months, check-off dues and sundry deductions for over one year and for the release of the White Paper on the Visitation Panel Report. 

In conclusion,

The Ambrose Alli University (AAU), Ekpoma chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) is set for a showdown with the Edo state government as it has called for a reversal of the law recently passed by the Edo State House of Assembly that has ceded the administration of the school to the Visitor who is Governor Godwin Obaseki.
