The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has kicked against the appointment of former Vice Chancellor of University of Ilorin, Professor Ishaq Oloyede as JAMB Registrar.
The union therefore, calls for his probe, saying that his era as Vice Chancellor was marred with anti-democratic and anti-union antecedents.
ASUU President, Professor Biodun Ogunyemi while addressing newsmen in Lagos on Monday said,
“Given our inside knowledge of his anti-democratic and anti-union antecedents antecedents, Professor Oloyede is the last person that we expected to be so honoured with a national appointment of that status in the education sector.”
According to him, Oloyede ‘s anti-workers stance stood out in the case of the sacked UNILORIN 49, adding, “he led the Administration’ s team to as far as Lagos to testify falsely against the workers before the Industrial Arbitration Panel.”
He recalled that in 2008, Oloyede as VC said that UNILORIN is happy without ASUU, while at the same time collecting money from UNILORIN academics in the name of ASUU without remitting same to the Union.
“As VC of UNILORIN, the system was manipulated to emotional his son and daughter and within weeks, gave them awards for overseas training despite explicit regulations against the practice.
“The above represent some of the reasons why the Union is appalled that Oloyede as being offered an appointment to head the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board.
“The Union has resolved to lodge an official complaint with the appropriate authorities and to demand a full fledged investigation into the activities of Oloyede while in office as VC of UNILORIN,” he added.
