The Non Academic Staff Union (NASU) of Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife on Monday, August 29, went on another protest lamenting over unpaid allowances.
The protest was in a bid to for NASU to press home their demand against the unpaid allowances of their members by the management of the institution.
The group lamented that the management of institution led by the acting Vice Chancellor, Professor Anthony Elujoba has failed to listen to their cry over the unpaid allowances.
One of the members of the Union told us that the Bursar of the institution, Mrs Aderonke Akeredolu claimed that the management is not owing the union.
The former chairman of NASU, Mr Akinibi popularly known as ‘governor’ during the protest said the group decided to embark on the protest when the Acting VC, Professor Elujoba said the school Bursar cannot account for the acclaimed allowances.
“The Acting VC told us that the bursar, Mrs Akeredolu informed him that there is no account or record for the money which we claimed the management is owing us. We see this as another foul play and a way to deprive us of our rights,” he said.
However, Professor Elujoba came to the scene to address the NASU leaders and they later went for a meeting to look for the best means to tackle the menace.
As at the time of filing this report, the outcome of their meeting is yet to be ascertained.
NASU, however threatened to embark on a strike if the outcome of the meeting with the Acting VC is not in anyway favourable to the Union.
