Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, in Ekiti State University, Ado Ekiti, has condemned the removal of the institution’s Vice Chancellor, Prof. Samuel Oye Bandele, by Governor Kayode Fayemi.

ASUU-EKSU chairman, Prof. Olufayo Olu-Olu, in a statement in Ado-Ekiti on Sunday said Fayemi’s action did not follow due process.

Olu-Olu said the governor lacked the powers to remove the VC, adding that, “It is the university Governing Council that has the power to remove the VC, after following due process.”

The statement read: “The university is an autonomous institution with extant rules and governing regulations.

“The appointment and removal of a VC has procedures under the laws of the university.

“EKSU is not and cannot be an extension of the Ministry of Education.

“The vice chancellor of EKSU was arbitrarily removed. The removal is hereby condemned in strong terms and in its entirety.

“ ASUU-EKSU Congress had, at its meeting on Thursday, January 24, resolved that, “In order to prevent unnecessary crisis and administrative problems, due process should be followed in governing of the university.”

recalls that Fayemi had, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Yinka Oyebode, last Tuesday, removed EKSU VC alongside the Chief Medical Director of Ekiti State University Teaching Hospital, Dr. Kolawole Ogundipe; and Provost of College of Education, Ikere-Ekiti, Prof. Mojisola Oyarekua; and announced their replacement in acting capacity.

The governor’s action followed the report of the visitation panels to the institutions and approval by the State Executive Council of the White Paper on the report.
