ASUU Rejects New Governing Councils.

ASUU Rejects New Governing Councils.

Academic Staff Union of Universities, has said it is not accepting the new Governing Councils constituted by the Federal Government for its public tertiary institutions, saying the union is for the return of the disbanded councils.

According to the union, the issue regarding the councils is about tenure and that the tenure of the former councils had not lapsed before they were removed from office, adding that the action of the FG smacked of illegality.

Briefing newsmen at the University of Lagos, UNILAG, on Tuesday, the Lagos Zonal Coordinator of ASUU, Prof. Adelaja Odukoya, said the only condition for dismantling the former councils should be that they have breached the law setting them up.

On the non-release of the withheld salaries of ASUU members, Odukoya said the government would not succeed in what it termed efforts to foist a master-servant relationship on lecturers.

They promised us when they came in that there would be peace and harmony on our campuses, but already, they are toeing the path of war.
