Following rounds of disagreement, The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Obafemi Awolowo University chapter have now withdrawn from the National Body.
The decision was contained in the resolution of the February 12 Congress of the body signed by the chairman of its caretaker committee, Niyi Sunmonu.
The resolution noted that although several reasons could be attributed to the recent development, it noted specifically the alleged unilateral removal of the “elected treasurer by ASUU national president and also the alleged transfer of N11 million from OAU branch account to ASUU national account,”
The resolution read in part “Last year, 732 of the 1,371 academic staff of Obafemi Awolowo University wrote to the university management to stop payment of their checkoff dues to the national body to express our displeasure against the way the national body handles the OAU branch’s crisis.
There are several reasons for pulling out which include the alleged unilateral removal of the elected treasurer by ASUU national president and also the alleged transfer of N11 million from OAU branch account to ASUU national account,” it added
