Unilorin Reacts to ASUU’s Terrorist organization Remarks

Following remarks by the Academic Staff Union of Universities who called the school a terrorist organization, Unilorin has responded saying such statements are false and unfortunate.

Recall that the school was called a terrorist organisation by Dr. Ayodeji Omole who is the chairman of the University of Ibadan chapter of ASUU after the school terminated the contract of Dr. Kayode Afolayan, ASUU chairman of the school.

Responding in a statement, Unilorin through their Head, Corporate Affairs, Mr. Kunle Akogun have refuted this claim.

Akogun said: “This is unfortunate, especially coming from someone who is expected to know the gravity of such appellation.

“While the university is not ready to join issues with this fellow, who appears hell bent to drag the good names that Unilorin has made for itself over the years in the mud, we want to make it abundantly clear that the disciplinary action recently taken by the university against two members of its staff, which is the basis for his outburst, followed due process and it was in line with the laid down rules and regulations as contained in the University’s Conditions of Service.”

“We wonder when an internal affair of the University of Ilorin has now become the business of the University of Ibadan ASUU chairman. We recall that this is the same fellow that recently alleged that the University of Ilorin had increased its tuition fees and shamefacedly took the false news to the media.

“As a supposed senior member of the academia, we expect Dr Omole to be circumspect in his usage of words. How can you describe a university that is the toast of most Nigerian parents and the darling of admission seekers as a terrorist organisation?

“The University of Ilorin is proud of its records of achievement as the most peaceful university in the country with an unbroken record of stable academic calendar and an unmatched expansion of academic programmes. These are attributes that have made the university the most sought after institution of higher learning in the country since 2013.”

The Academic Staff Union of Universities has described the University of Ilorin as a terrorist organisation after the institution reportedly sacked the ASUU chairman in the school, Dr. Kayode Afolayan, for allegedly exposing corrupt practices of the outgoing Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Abdulganiyu Ambali

In a letter signed on behalf of the union by the chairman of the University of Ibadan chapter of ASUU, Dr. Ayodeji Omole, and the Zonal Coordinator, ASUU Ibadan Zone, Dr. Ade Adejumo, the lecturers said that Unilorin under Ambali devised all means to suppress legitimate industrial activities in order to avoid exposure of his misdeeds.

The letter partly read, “Indeed, the university prides itself in its ability to kill off (members of) staff and students that are connected in any way to ASUU leadership. This hate crime on the part of the university is usually carried out under the guise of uninterrupted academic calendar. Yet, many universities have also maintained a stable academic calendar without destroying union members or their careers. To all intents and purposes, Unilorin has become a terrorist organisation as far as industrial relation is concerned.

“Prof Ambali took all these to an unprecedented height when in 2015, he smuggled his wife, Dr. Taiwo Ambali, into the university through the temporary appointment route as Lecturer 1. By 2016, less than one year later, she had been promoted to the rank of Senior Lecturer, when the regulation specifies at least three years before such a promotion could take place.
“Our branch chairman, Dr. Afolayan, on behalf of the union, signed a letter addressed to the school governing council to look into the infringement against the university Rules and Regulations committed by Prof. Ambali. However, rather than retrace his steps, the outgoing vice-chancellor issued a query to Afolayan alleging that they circulated an unspecified leaflet against the vice-chancellor.

“On September 21, 2017, the university administration completed another cycle of impunity, lawlessness and disregard for due process with the termination of appointment of Afolayan.”
ASUU also alleged that despite its petitions to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission and other anti-corruption agencies, the reports of their investigations were never made public.

“Equally worrisome is the seeming connivance of relevant authorities with Unilorin in its dastardly pursuit. For example, our union, since December 2016, had submitted petitions to the EFCC, ICPC and the CCB but until now results of ongoing investigations have not been made known to the public. Our union also wrote petitions to the Ministry of Education and the Visitor to the school but no concrete step has been taken. The silence by these relevant agencies and authorities casts serious doubt on the commitment of government in the anti-graft war,” the letter read in part.

The Academic Staff Union of Nigerian Universities on Monday, suspended its one month, six days strike and has however said its battle with government is far from over.

Text of press conference by the academic staff union of universities held in respect of the nationwide strike action at nigeria labour congress headquarters, pascal bafyau house, abuja on monday, 18th september, 2017

PROTOCOLS

Compatriots of the Press,

As part of the avowed commitment of our Union, ASUU, to building a virile Nigerian state, we address Nigerians through you once again on matters that are critical to the stability, security and development of our nation, particularly on the place of education and the constant affront against it by successive governments in Nigeria. Life has almost lost meaning to the average Nigerian today.

Stories of suicide, insurrection and brigandage are commonplace with the degradation of educational and other institutional frameworks for apprehending the perversion of our cherished values.

Sadly, our leaders live in affluence while the people wallow in absolute poverty, which suggests callousness and indifference to the plight of the rest of Nigerians, and generates insecurity and violent conflict.

The place of education in the life and development of any country is generally acknowledged. Any nation that neglects education does so to its peril.

Unfortunately, our country has chosen to follow this perilous path, over the years.

The Academic Staff Union of Universities, our Union, has consistently called the attention of our country to, and challenged government after government on, the need to give education a pride of place in driving national development.

While these struggles have yielded some substantive fruits, it is sad to note that the apathy and subterfuge of successive governments have resulted in incremental regrettable loss of progress and growth in the education sector, manifesting particularly in the deterioration and decay of the university system, with their negative consequences for the Nigerian society.

HOW DID WE GET HERE?

The 2001 FGN/ASUU Agreement came to be, after a tortuous journey spanning years of protests, national strikes and resilient struggles by the Union, supported by the Nigerian people. The 2001 Agreement was due for review in 2004.

It, however, took Government two years and an ASUU strike to begin the review in 2006, and an additional two years of unwarranted provocation of academics due to needless foot-dragging and insincerity on the part of Government.

In the course of renegotiation of the 2001 FGN/ASUU Agreement, the FGN/ASUU Committee derived its direction from the terms of reference listed by the then Minister of Education and agreed that the essence of the re-negotiation was:

(i) To reverse the decay in the university system, in order to reposition it for greater responsibilities in national development;

(ii) To reverse the brain drain, not only by enhancing the remuneration of academic staff, but also by disengaging them from the encumbrances of a unified civil service structure;

(iii) To restore Nigerian universities, through immediate, massive and sustained financial intervention; and

(iv) To ensure genuine university autonomy and academic freedom.

The Negotiating Teams searched for, and arrived at minimal conditions for reversing the decay in the University System. Although the re-negotiation was completed in 2008, it took the government over a year to sign the Agreement – in 2009.

The failure of the Governments to implement substantial parts of the 2009 FGN/ASUU Agreement led to series of warning strikes and, ultimately, a total, comprehensive and indefinite strike action in 2011/2012. These actions forced the government to conduct a nationwide assessment of the needs for addressing the rot and decay in our public universities.

The Needs Assessment Report, released in July 2012, called for immediate and comprehensive intervention and revitalization of the universities. Unfortunately, although the government approved this report, it did not make any effort to address the issues raised.

The failure of series of consultations, dialogues and interventions by well-meaning Nigerians to get government to do the right thing, once again, compelled our Union to embark on another strike action in 2013.



The resolution of that strike action culminated in the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Federal Government on 11th December, 2013.

The goal of the MoU is to reinforce the compelling need to implement the provisions of the extant Agreements/MoU on the increased funding of public universities.

Major items of the 2013 MoU include:

1) Fund for revitalization of the university system, amounting to N1.3 trillion in 6 years, based on yearly release of N220 billion, starting with N200 billion in 2013.

2) A dedicated revitalization account to be opened by FGN with CBN to warehouse the fund.

3) A central Monitoring Committee to monitor the implementation of the revitalization of the universities.

4) Payment of outstanding balance of the Earned Academic Allowances (EAA) after verification of the level of payment made from the initial of N30 billion.

5) Engagement of the services of public universities in special consultancy as a way of boosting IGR of the universities.

It is true that Government raised the hope of Nigerians on the promise of addressing the rot and decay in Nigerian public universities with the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding and release of the initial sum of N200 billion.

However, and unfortunate for Nigeria, the hope has since been dashed. Indeed, the current government has revealed that the said N200bn was taken from the TETFund intervention account.

This, no doubt, is a case of robbing Peter to pay Peter. The Needs Assessment Intervention Funds were to be raised from other sources to complement the efforts of TETFund, not to undermine an agency which is a product of ASUU struggles.

TETFund was not, and is not, meant to be a “cash cow” for the political class and our Union will continue to challenge any attempt to derail it from its original mandate.

There is always a question – Why must ASUU adopt the strike option considering its impact on the quality of education which the Union wants to raise? The answer to this is simple.

ASUU’s resolve to forge a hitch-free academic calendar has been proven by the utmost restraint which it usually showed before embarking on strike action.

ASUU as a national body did not embark on any strike between December 2013 and November 2016. ASUU’s strikes are forced on it by the tendency of the Federal and State Governments to renege on the agreements freely entered into by them. Successive Governments have demonstrated a strong antagonism to the patriotic goals underlying ASUU’s agitations.

ISSUES IN THE CURRENT DISPUTE

Comrades and compatriots, the current strike has been necessitated by the non-implementation of the 2009 Agreement, 2013 MoU and the 2016 resolutions reached in the course of ASUU’s talks with representatives of the Federal Government under the chairmanship of the Senate President. Specifically, the issues in dispute are:

1. Funding for the Revitalization of Public Universities

2. Earned Academic Allowances (EAA)

3. Registration of Nigerian Universities Pension Management Company (NUPEMCO) and Pension Matters.

4. Universities Staff Schools

5. Fractionalization and Non-Payment of Salaries

6. Exemption of the University System from TSA

7. Poor funding and the proliferation of State Universities

With the commencement of the ongoing action on 12th August, 2017, we have held series of meetings and deliberations with the representatives of the Federal Government and arrived at a number of resolutions.

These are captured in a Memorandum of Action (MoA) signed today, 18th September, 2017. For the avoidance of doubt, the new MoA is action-oriented because each item on the list has a time-line attached.

We want to state, unequivocally, that the continuous breach of trust by successive governments is the root cause of the continuing actions undertaken by our Union. The correct dictum is “Pacta sum servanda” (All agreements must be respected).

The current resolutions, like every resolution, in a civil engagement, are based on mutual trust. It is our ardent hope that our trust will not be yet again misplaced.

Consistent with the said prompt response, we expect that this government will abide strictly by all the timelines set out in the current resolutions.



Our union deems it necessary to give a precautionary advice: should government unilaterally vary the agreement(s) it has signed with our union, we should not be held responsible for the consequences.

STATE OF THE NATION

Having addressed the matter of the strike action, it is crucial that we address even a more fundamental issue; the state of the Nigerian nation.

The industrial action, as well as the entire university system, which it seeks to protect have meaning within the context of the state of the nation. Whatever happens to the nation ultimately impacts the university system.

The current sorry situation of the country, therefore, is a matter of grave concern for ASUU.

 

From education to the economy, from the society to national security, and to the livelihood opportunities, the situation is worrisome.

The government has announced with glee the movement away from recession, but to the ordinary Nigerian citizen the reality is different. Neither poverty nor hunger nor general suffering has reduced in level or intensity in our country.

The general unrest among the labour Unions is a reflection of the deplorable condition under which the Nigerian worker operates, just as the growing incidence of suicide is an indication of the level of frustration and hopelessness of the average Nigerian citizen.

There are no advances in policies that can substantially provide the welfare needs – employment, health, education, etc – of Nigerians outside the ruling class.

All in all, the mounting feeling of insecurity in the country is now palpable.

A clear indication of the level of insecurity is the massive security personnel, with which our leaders and the elites surround themselves, leaving the masses unprotected, at the mercy of the violent hoodlums who have overrun the country.

 

The plague of armed robbery, kidnapping, and other forms of criminality are enough threat to the peace of any polity.

However, these violent acts are treated as minor problems in Nigeria, even when they are compounded by the rising tide of ethnic and religious conflicts.

The crux of the problem, in all these, however, is the inconsistent responses of the government, and its use of double standards in addressing the various issues, persons and groups that tug at the fabric of the country.

Ultimately, the persistence of the problems is a result of the same paradigm that the people have suffered from – global liberalism.

ASUU is firmly convinced that the solution to the underdevelopment of our people is re-orienting Nigeria’s economy from neo-liberalism to a peoples-oriented model.

The starting point is to exit the envelop-style budgeting and accord education its pride of place in the scheme of things.

CONDITIONAL SUSPENSION OF THE STRIKE ACTION

After an elaborate and extensive consultation process, the National Executive Council (NEC) of ASUU has agreed to conditionally suspend the ongoing action, taking into cognizance that major proposals from government to address the contending issues in the strike action has a deadline of the end of October, 2017.

All members of ASUU are to resume work after their branch congresses tomorrow, 19th September, 2017. However, ASUU will not hesitate to review its position should government reneges on the signed Memorandum of Action.

As a Union of intellectuals, ASUU shall not relent in confronting all human and artificial barriers to a transformed university education for the betterment of Nigerians and our dear Nation. For us, this may be a life-time project.

We owe it to prosperity, for the sake of our children and their children’s children.

We thank all Nigerians for their understanding of the irrepressible concern and concerted efforts of ASUU for an educational system and Nigeria of our dream.

In particular, our appreciation goes to members of the Press and our dear students who at various stages engaged ASUU leadership for clarifications on the basis of our struggle.

Together we can make Nigerian universities enviable. Until and unless this happens, ASUU will not rest.

The struggle continues!

Thank you.

Biodun Ogunyemi
President

According to the Academic Staff Union of Universities, the Federal Government should be held responsible for the union’s continuous strike.
The chairman of ASUU at the University of Ibadan, Dr. Deji Omole said this in a radio program, he also said that the federal government can end the strike by implementing the agreement reached with the union.

Omole said;

“ASUU has never run away from negotiations. The issue in connection with the strike is about implementation and not negotiation as being peddled by the Minister of Labour , Chris Ngige . It was sad that successive government , including the incumbent failed to realise that funding education is an investment which can bring about enduring positive change in Nigeria ,”.

“When you reached agreement you must implement it . They just finished the Ileya festival and why do we celebrate it ? Because someone promised to sacrifice his son to God and when he decided to fulfil it , God replaced that with ram and that is why we are celebrating . Jesus Christ also promised to come and die for the sin of the world and he came and fulfilled that promise . That is why you still have people who believe in his second coming.
“Why will government not fulfil the promises contained in the signed agreements ? That is what brings crisis . Government should see education as investment . The products will come out to change society . University is to develop ideas to change society . What we are doing in the universities is a mockery of university education . Government should pump in money so that we can solve Nigeria ’ s problems here in Nigeria .
“If our universities are properly funded , we can conduct cutting edge researches that can take us out of the recession . What we are simply saying is that FG should use public funds to fund public education. Chris Ngige is naive on this issue.
“He should check his records and see if there are new demands in his file . University lecturers and students are not the one who created recession . The ruling class through their activities plunged Nigeria into economic recession . Government should stop establishing new universities if they cannot fund existing ones. Universities are not constituency project, ” .

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has set the the minimum cut-off mark for admissions into universities at 120.

This followed the conclusion of the combined policy meeting which had Vice Chancellors, Rectors and Provosts of higher institutions as well as other stake holders in attendance.

The minimum cut off marks for polytechnics and colleges of education was set at 100 while that of innovative enterprising institutes was set at 110.

It was also decided at the meeting that admission into first choice universities should close on October 15 while December 15, 2017 was set as the closing date for second choice admission by institutions.



Also, admissions into public degree awarding institutions for the 2017 UTME examination will end on January 15, 2018 while for private institutions, it ends on January 31, 2018.

JAMB Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede said institutions, with the decision, are not to go below the minimum cut-off points adopted at the meeting for admissions.

He called for the adoption of flexible cut-off marks for admission processes by higher institutions in the country.

According to him, “What JAMB has done is to recommend; We will only determine the minimum, whatever you determine as your admission cut-off mark is your decision.

“The Senate and academic boards of universities should be allowed to determine their cut-off marks.”He said.

“The admission process is now automated with direct involvement of the registrar of JAMB for final approval.



“We have agreed to regularize admissions that were done under the table this year. From next year we will not accept anything like that.”

The Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu stated that the cancellation on post-UTME was a mistake and said institutions are now at liberty to conduct, while adding that fee for the examination should not exceed N2000.

He made this known while speaking on Tuesday before the Senate Committee on Tertiary Institutions and TETFUND, led by Senator Jibrin Barau.

According to him, plans are on ground to honour the agreement between the FG and ASUU.

He stated that the Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun, had already approved a total N53bn for the union so far, adding that the balance of N23bn would be released on Monday when the striking lecturers would receive the cheque.

He however said, “We didn’t agree with ASUU on their request that TSA should be taken out. I told them that it is not possible because it is a new policy and government is not going to change it for anyone.

“Concerning their salary short fall, we said the reason springs from universities employing people without proper authority.

“For instance, a university can just decide to go and recruit 50 people without notifying IPPIS. So, what they are going to get is the money they got last month, which will not be sufficient for them. We have told them that institutions should, henceforth, stop doing that and they accepted.

The Minister finally Said that he is optimistic that the strike will be called of within then next one week maximum.
