Members of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, SSANU, Western zone, this morning shut down activities at the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta over the sack of 23 of its members in the school. The Governing Council of the school had on Thursday last week, sacked 18 members of staff of the institution.
The affected staff included three members of the Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Universities of the institution, namely Lasun Somoye, Abdusalaam Sobbor, E.A. Bankole, 10 executive members of SSANU in the school, five other staff of the institution, three medical doctors and two health workers.
They have all been accused of petitioning the EFCC over allegations of fraud in the school. SSANU members are calling for the immediate reinstatement of the sacked lecturers.
This week was supposed to be the school’s lecture free week while lectures resume on Monday 21st November 2016 in preparations for the school’s second semester examinations.
With the strike, that may highly be in doubt.
