Members of Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) on Friday, walked to the governor’s office in Lagos to urge the governor to set up a visitation panel on the alleged plan by the management of the Lagos State University (LASU) Ojo, to terminate the appointment of three of its members at LASU Chapter, unjustly. The protesters, in their hundreds, carried placards with various inscriptions.

Speaking at the protest ground, the Lagos zone coordinator of ASUU, Prof Sowande Olusiji, gave the names of the concerned ASUU-LASU members as Dr Tony Dansu, Dr Adeolu Oyekan and Dr Oluwafemi Aboderin-Shonibare, who are secretary, assistant secretary and treasurer respectively, saying the management was planning to sack them for allegedly exposing a document that unduly backdated the promotion of the incumbent vice-chancellor, Prof Olarenwaju Fagbohun, from the associate level to full-fledged professor.

Prof Olusiji, who is in solidarity with the so-called victimised members, said the Vice-Chancellor went ahead to invite the three people to join Senate Council Disciplinary Committee, noting that it is his conviction that the intervention of the governor, whom he described as visitor, would go a long way in resolving the matter.
