OPINION: 'Expose them now, before they explode the university' by Afolabi Samuel

Image
The menace of cultism in Nigerian tertiary institutions calls for diligent analysis and pragmatic remedy.

Few weeks ago, the Obafemi Awolowo University Administration handed over 12 suspected cult members (students and ex students that have refused to graduate) to Osun State CID, Osogbo.

While it is a commendable development, it is equally crystal clear that the University is only interested in cheap populism, cosmetic face-saving drama, as the concerned individuals have been released without any further investigation or prosecution.

Obviously, the scenario is dangerous to the University Community and the Country at large.

For the sake of records, this scenario is reccurring and the scenes playing out like the 1999 brutal attack that claimed the lives of five Obafemi Awolowo University students. For students of history, the events preceeding the July 10, 1999 massacre is grossly similar to the current events.

The University Administration has forgotten, that he who fails to learn fro…

Nigerian Universities' Technologists Demand the Prosecution of Professor Akindele.

The National Association of Academic Technologists (NAAT) has urged the federal government to expedite action towards the prosecution of Professor Richard Akindele, the OAU lecturer who was recently sacked over sex for marks scandal.

The unions are under the aegis of Joint Action Committee (JAC) Unions of NAAT – the Non Academic Staff Union (NASU) and Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Univerisities (SSANU). According to the union, this will serve as deterrent to others, even as it urged other universities and indeed all institutions of learning to follow the O.A.U example, saying this will entrench sanity in the system.
The NAAT in a communiqués reached at the end of its 37th National Executive Council (NEC) meeting, held at Obafemi Awolowo University (O.A.U), Ile-Ife, said the unions which are in federal universities were running out of patience.

The communiqué was jointly signed by NAAT President, Sani Suleiman, and General Secretary, Iyoyo Hamilton.
