Ekiti Varsity Governing Council Shuts School Indefinitely, Proscribes ASU, NASU, Others Activities Over Protest

Ekiti State University, Ado Ekiti has been shut indefinitely by the school Governing Council over recent protest by the Unions in the institution.

The disclosure of the institution was announced in a statement issued on Saturday by EKSU’s spokesperson, Bode Olofinmuagun.

The statement added that the council also banned the Academic and Non-Academic Staff Unions, as well as Senior Staff Association and National Association of Academic Technologists in the university.

The action followed the recent protest by Unions in the University, who have been occupying the campus for days, disrupting all activities and insisting their unpaid salaries and other entitlements are met.

With the new order by the Governing Council, academic activities have been put on hold as students are expected to vacate the campus this weekend.

Specifically, the unions have been asking the state government to pay them three months’ salary arrears dated 2018, six years of earned allowances and unremitted cooperative deductions among other demands from the University Council and Management.

They also condemned the disengagement of some duly employed staff of the institution and failure to reabsorb some disengaged staff who took the institution to court and wotvn, a development they claimed has reduced the workforce unjustifiably, adding to the burden of staff.
