ASUU makes fresh demands

Published

on

Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Lagos State University (LASU) Chapter, has demanded the payment of accumulated Earned Academic Allowance (EAA) unpaid since 2009 to lecturers in the institution.

The union’s demand was made known in its bulletin obtained by newsmen on Tuesday in Lagos.

The demands, signed by its Secretary, Dr Tony Dansu and the Assistant Secretary, Dr Adeolu Oyekan, indicated that the EAA was a product of the ASUU/Federal Government Agreement of 2009, which redefined the minimum benchmark for university administration in Nigeria.

ASUU-LASU said that the Lagos State Government and LASU’s administration had since then implemented the agreement in breach of the agreement, as it remains the only university yet to pay any fraction of the allowance throughout the country

“The EAA, it should be noted, was part of the negotiated emolument of academic staff whose payment was deferred by the university when it started to implement the new salary structure.

“No one in his wildest of imagination expects the university to accumulate the allowances spanning a period of over almost a decade.

“ASUU-LASU under different leaderships made a case for the payment of the allowances so that the university avoids an accumulation that may in the future prove burdensome.

“These plans were ignored by successive administrations and as at January 2016 when the current Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Olanrewaju Fagbohun assumed office, the arrears had already spanned to about 6 years.

“The union raised the issue with the current vice-chancellor and forwarded components of the allowances to him when he suggested that the university had no understanding of them.

“This has since followed numerous reminders but the vice-chancellor has not for once responded and it is on this basis that the union executives decided in line with congress directive to take the case to public domain,” it said.

The union noted that the ongoing renegotiation between ASUU and the Federal Government had to do with the need to improve the conditions agreed to in 2009 which was long overdue for review.

According to ASUU-LASU, the ongoing renegotiation has nothing to do with the implementation of the subsisting agreement as claimed by the vice-chancellor in one of his bulletins.

The union said the disregard that the university administration had exhibited toward its own academic staff was the reason why it remained the only university yet to pay any fraction of the allowance.

ASUU-LASU, however, reassured the staff of its readiness to meet, dialogue and explore reasonable pathways geared toward ensuring payment of the long overdue allowance.

Reacting, the university’s spokesman, Mr Ademola Adekoya, told NAN that the issues of the unpaid EAA predates the tenure of the current vice-chancellor.

“The unpaid Earned Academic Allowances predated the assumption of Fagbohun to office and has been lingering since 2009 when the Federal Government agreed with ASUU that the allowances will be paid.

“Since then, nothing was paid, before the vice-chancellor was appointed in 2016, and when he came on board, he met a lot of unpaid salary arrears, denied promotions and that became his priority.

“He cannot just come and begin to pay earned academic allowances and leave promotion and salary arrears unpaid,” he said.

Adekoya challenged ASUU-LASU to name Nigerian universities that had paid the EAA to a reasonable amount, as many of them were even struggling to pay salaries as when due.

“How many universities have been paying the EAA in Nigeria? Most of them are struggling to pay salaries.

“The demands of workers in other universities is for their salaries to be paid as when due, as workers in some universities are even collecting half salaries so they are not talking about earned academic allowances for now

“The vice-chancellor on behalf of the university administration is not refusing to pay the allowances but only requesting that things be prioritised so that workers salaries could still be paid regularly.

“The vice-chancellor cannot take a unilateral decision of paying the allowances. The state government will have to increase the subvention of the university for all the unpaid allowances to be paid,” he added.

Buhari finally speaks on ASUU strike, reveals what he will do

President Muhammadu Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari


President Muhammadu Buhari has urged the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to suspend its on-going industrial action in the interest of the country.
Buhari gave the charge on Tuesday during the 3rd Convocation Ceremony of the Alex Ekwueme-Federal University, Ndufu-Alike, Ikwo (AE-FUNAI) Ebonyi.

DAILY POST had reported that the ongoing strike declared by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) continues as the leaders of the union and the Federal government failed to reach an agreement again.

According to NAN, Buhari, who was represented by Mr Victor Onuoha, Deputy Executive Secretary of the National Universities Commission (NUC) said government was aware of the challenges confronting the sector.

“We are not unmindful of the funding challenge faced by the education sector, occasioned by dwindling resources and other competing national needs.
“We will, however, continue doing the needful to improve the nation’s educational sector within available, limited resources,” he said.
The President said that his administration realised the importance of education in nation building and pledged its continued support and provision to the sector.

“We will continue providing specific infrastructure through annual appropriation and other interventions such as the Tertiary Education Trust (TET) Fund, NEEDS assessment, among others.
“Universities have critical roles to play in nation building as they must justify their establishment through excellent, production-based research activities, innovative ideas, empowerment of youths among others,” he said.

Sex-for-marks: Female students decry sexual harassment in Delta Polytechnic

Published

Student Sexual Harassment

Student Sexual Harassment


Allegations of sex-for-marks and other related activities are currently threatening academic activities at the Delta State Polytechnic in Ogwashi Uku.

Though none of the male lecturers fingered in the illicit and evil act has been caught, it was gathered that the polytechnic is at present enmeshed in the alleged sex scandal.

It was gathered that no examination conducted by the accused lecturers that is not followed by demands for sex, especially within ND One courses and HND Two finals; a situation some of the female students, who turned down the lecturers’ sex-for-marks demands, are threatened with failure or a re-sit for any of their written courses.

A HND finals student, who spoke to newsmen in the area, said, “A lecturer in my department, Mass Communication (name withheld) has been asking me out right from my HND one and I refused. Because of that, he failed me. I begged him with N20,000 he refused, saying he will make love to me twice and restore my marks, I am confused as many of my mates have graduated but I am still struggling to pass my examinations”.

Sources alleged that these randy lecturers are often armed with condoms when coming to work and in most cases move into a nearby hotel to the school with their female students to have sexual intercourse that will in the end lead to the award of marks.

Confronted with the allegations, lecturers, who spoke on condition of anonymity, described it as frivolous and untrue, stressing that the female students were out to destroy their careers.

It was further gathered that those female students, who turned down sex-for-marks entreaties by the lecturers, were allegedly subjected to untold disgrace and failure in their courses and cannot press home petition to the school authorities, particularly with stern warnings from the randy lecturers’ aides allegedly known to be notorious cultists.

Speaking to newsmen in the school, the Public Relations Officer (PRO), Mr Manfred Oghen said, “We have got several reports by our female students of male lecturers asking for sex for marks, and we have made recommendations to the school authorities to no avail. The cases are on the increase, and we are appealing to the management of the school to take bold steps to sack or bring the lecturers involved to book, it’s really an unfortunate situation at present.”

Mr Valentine Utulu, a journalist who narrated his recent experience with a few students (names withheld) who were supposed to have graduated, but for turning down the request for sex for marks, are still in the school.

According to Utulu; “the girl is my sister, the lecturer she told me had demanded for sex in one of the courses she turned down, her project work was not signed. She said she offered N20,000 to the lecturer but refused, insisting on sex. I personally confronted the PRO of the Polytechnic, Mr Manfred, who confirmed to me that the school management is not taking a drastic action against the act. It started during the time of the former rector. We hope that some thing will be done about the act”.

Efforts to speak with the new rector of the polytechnic, Professor (Mrs) Stella Olishemiyeke, was not successful as she was said to have travelled out of Ogwashi Uku when DAILY POST called at her office.

However, the Chairman, Board of Governing Council of the Polytechnic, Dr Festus Okunbo said no report of such has been reported to the management, adding that “we will not treat such report if it gets to us and established that the lecturers were culpable. The lecturers involved will be sacked. We cannot joke with such illicit activities, The administration of Dr Ifeanyi Okowa has zero tolerance for illicit and fraudulent activities”.

He then called on the female students sexually harassed to report directly to his office for necessary action.

Dr Okunbo, who spoke to newsmen in Asaba, said that any lecturer found wanting or accused of sexual harassment by the female students, and it is found to be true will be disgraced and shown the way out.

He called on parents to be vigilant in the activities of their children while in school, especially in the rising cases of ritual killings orchestrated by ‘Yahoo plus’ boys across the country.
