The Vice Chancellor of the Michael Okpara University of Agriculture (MOUAU), Prof. Hillary Edeoga has come out with a downright statement that the authority of the institution would not recalled its member and Branch Chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Dr U.A.U. Onyembinama, allegedly suspended by the institution last month for taking the university to court.
This announcement comes on the heels of an ultimatum given by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to the authorities to recall its member and Branch Chairman of the union, Dr U.A.U. Onyembinama or face the full wrath of the union.
The Owerri Zone of ASUU had at its congress held at the university campus, Umudike, yesterday, called on the University authority to immediately reverse the suspension or they would paralyzed academic activities in the institution.
Reacting to the union’s congress resolution, Prof. Edeoga disclosed that the action of the university was prompted by the legal action instituted by the suspended ASUU branch chairman who decided to go against the stipulated condition of service of the university.
However, in their resolution the Zonal ASUU Chairperson, Dr Chinyere Echendu, told newsmen after the congress, that the union re-affirmed their support to the leadership of ASUU at the zonal level calling on the university authority to reverse their decision with immediate effect.
