LAUTECH Senior Staff Frown on Gov Makinde Step Aside Order To VC

Senior Staff Association Of Nigerian Universities, Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomosho Branch has frowned on the decision of the State Governor towards the Senate of the Institution which was signed by the Hon. Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology.

According to press release by Senior Staff Association of Nigeria University LAUTECH Branch signed by her Chairman Comr. Fajoye Hamzat Oyelere obtained by infonets which read

"The Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities(SSANU), Ladoke Akintola University of Technology Branch, Ogbomoso received the news of the directive to “step aside” given to the University’s Vice Chancellor, Professor Michael Olufisayo Ologunde vide a letter signed by the Oyo State Commissioner of Education, Science & Technology, Barrister Olasunkanmi Aremu Olaleye titled “Press Release” and dated April 16, 2021, with mixed feelings.

The said letter did not categorically lay any allegation against the deposed Vice Chancellor other than saying that “His Excellency Engineer Oluseyi Abiodun Makinde, Governor of Oyo State and Visitor to Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), Ogbomoso has directed that the Vice Chancellor of the Institution, Professor M. O. Ologunde should step aside until further notice”. The directive went ahead to instruct that, “consequently, the Vice Chancellor has been directed to handover forthwith to the next Principal Officer in rank in order to ensure uninterrupted flow of normal activities in the University”.

Our Union in the light of equity, justice and fair play therefore, arising from her branch executive emergency online meeting held on Sunday, April 18,2021, having critically examined the contents of the letter and reports of our consultations with the members viz a viz the provisions of the LAUTECH Extant laws, wish to observe as follows, that:

i). LAUTECH is not an appendage of the Ministry of Education, Science & Technology, Oyo State or the extension of the Office of the Hon. Commissioner of Education, Science & Technology of the State but a statutory body that has its establishment law as may be amended.

ii). The law of the university did not give power to administer the university to the Commissioner but the Governing Council.

iii). The power to appoint and terminate staff appointments is resided in the Governing Council and not the Visitor or his proxies including the Commissioner of Education, Science & Technology.

iv). The University enjoys autonomy in Nigeria, Oyo State inclusive.

v). The purported letter signed by the Commissioner of Education, Science & Technology will have no basis in law and can only generate animosity and innuendos within the university community and between Oyo and Osun States more so, the joint ownership status of the university was just severed in December 2020 and unfortunately the deposed Vice Chancellor is a vestige of the arrangement prior to the dismantling of the joint ownership status.

vi). The “step aside” directive is considered hasty, cumbersome and incongruous to the order that brought in the current principal officers of the university on February 14, 2019, and should be reversed in the name of equity, fairness and good conscience and also negated the position of His Excellency on LAUTECH as said in his radio and television broadcast of Saturday, February 20, 2021.

We would like to remind His Excellency, Engineer Oluseyi Abiodun Makinde that on Saturday, February 20, 2021, on a live radio program anchored by the Broadcasting Corporation of Oyo State(BCOS), he informed the whole world that he heard on a good note that the Vice Chancellor incited the Unions on campus to go on strike to demand for the payment of their Eight(8) months outstanding salaries and allowances having paid Eight(8)billion naira to Osun State on the separation of joint ownership.

The Governor in his final submission reasoned that he will allow the Governing Council to investigate the matter when it resumed work in order of him not to be seen as been despotic and undemocratic in dispensing judgment on the matter and that he will possibly not like a court case on the matter.

Today, that Council has not officially assumed duty in the university since its inauguration by the Governor on April 1, 2021.

Can we now ask the Commissioner where he derived the power to order the “step aside” of the Vice Chancellor when the Visitor he claimed to have directed him has openly declared that such power belongs to the Governing Council?

Our Union is not interested in who becomes the Vice Chancellor beyond the fact that we lobbied the last Governing Council to consider and give us a homegrown Chief Executive Officer of the University after more than 25years of existence.

Professor Ologunde can be removed by the Governing Council but not by the Visitor or his proxy. Even at that, his offense must be properly stated and investigated where he will be given opportunity to present his case to the extent of being represented by a lawyer of his choice if need be.

He is not a direct appointee of the Governor if we will like the rule of law to prevail.

SSANU will not want a confused situation where legal turmoil and civil unrest will be unnecessarily unleashed within the university community.

We plead with His Excellency, Engineer Oluseyi Abiodun Makinde to rescind the directive as it is being executed and allow the rule of law to prevail under the principles of natural justice pending the open investigation of the Vice Chancellor by the Governing Council if need be.

Thank you.

An injury to one is an injury to all.

  UEFA Kick Against Europa Super League
Posted by: Gbekosco - 4 hours ago - Forum: Sports - Replies (2)

Following the announcement of a new super league for some European football clubs, the continent’s governing football body, UEFA has insisted that it will strive with member of the governing bodies that the idea does not come to fruition.

A statement by UEFA, reads “the English Football Association and the Premier League, the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) and LaLiga, and the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) and Lega Serie A have learned that a few English, Spanish and Italian clubs may be planning to announce their creation of a closed, so-called Super League.

If this were to happen, we wish to reiterate that we – UEFA, the English FA, RFEF, FIGC, the Premier League, LaLiga, Lega Serie A, but also FIFA and all our member associations – will remain united in our efforts to stop this cynical project, a project that is founded on the self-interest of a few clubs at a time when society needs solidarity more than ever.

“We will consider all measures available to us, at all levels, both judicial and sporting in order to prevent this happening. Football is based on open competitions and sporting merit; it cannot be any other way.

“As previously announced by FIFA and the six Confederations, the clubs concerned will be banned from playing in any other competition at domestic, European or world level, and their players could be denied the opportunity to represent their national teams.

“We thank those clubs in other countries, especially the French and German clubs, who have refused to sign up to this. We call on all lovers of football, supporters and politicians, to join us in fighting against such a project if it were to be announced. This persistent self-interest of a few has been going on for too long. Enough is enough[Image: IMG-20210419-WA0001.jpg]
