LASU Governing Council Approves Reinstatement of Dismissed ASUU Leaders 5 Years After

Five sacked leaders of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) LASU Branch have now been recommended to be reinstated by the Governing Body of the Varsity.

The news of the reinstatement was welcomed with great jubilation following the recommendations of the Appeal Committee headed by the Deputy Vice Chancellor, Prof. Adenike Boyo.

The reinstated union leaders include ASUU-LASU chairman, Dr. Akinloye Isaac Oyewumi; Vice chairman, Dr. Adebowale Adeyemi-Suenu; Secretary, Dr. Anthony Dansu; Assistant Secretary, Dr. Adeolu Oluwaseyi Oyekan and Treasurer, Dr. Oluwakemi Aboderin-Shonibare.

Recall that the immediate past Vice-Chancellor, Olanrewaju Adigun Fagbohun, sacked them on allegations of “unauthorised removal, retention and dissemination or publication of official confidential documents” in September 2017 and September, 2019.

The decision of the Prof. Adebayo Ninalowo-led governing council attracted much criticisms from the rights groups accusing the Fagbohun-led administration of victimisation of the affected lecturers.
Prof. Ibiyemi Olatunji-Bello had upon her assumption of office swung into action and set up a committee headed by Prof. Dapo Asaju to look into labour dispute, especially the case of the embattled ASUU-LASU leaders.
