ASUU: ‘We will Deal with VCs who cannot maintain peace on campus’

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has warned that it would not spare Vice-Chancellors who had not done enough to ensure peace and stability in their institutions.

According to NAN report, National President, Dr Nasir Fagge has said that some Vice Chancellors do not perform their duties satisfactorily – one of which is that they should ensure peace in their institution.

He added that some VCs would rather create confusion among staff and other unions.

Fagge then pointed fingers at VC of Lagos State University, saying that the current crisis is due to the overzealous vice-chancellor wanting to destroy the institution.

“We had a situation where all the trade unions on campus had to rise up and fight the then vice-chancellor to a standstill,’’ he said, in an interview with NAN.

“We are happy that the Lagos State Government, which cherishes and knows the need for stability in an academic setting, had to intervene.

“With that vice-chancellor out now, we equally hope that his successor will be able to turn around the plight of the institution for good so that it begins to move to higher pedestal.’’

Fagge also mentioned that the problems facing Ladoke Akintola University of Technology as one that is caused by the institution having 2 masters.

“They rather find it convenient to pass the buck on each other as regards the plight of the university.

“We believe that the two visitors must have to sit down and decide the fate of this institution so that should anything happen to the university; one will know where to trade the blame.

“We as ASUU will not sit back and watch any person or group of persons destroy what government and other critical stakeholders are toiling hard to build in the interest of our children,’’ he warned.
