Hope rises for early resolution of Ekiti Varsity, unions crisis

There is now an assurance that the interface between the Ekiti State House of Assembly and the management of the Ekiti State University, Ado Ekiti as well as union leaders would put an end to the lingering issues in the University.

The Chairman, House Committee on Public Service Matters and establishments, Mr Oluwajuwa Adegbuyi, disclosed this at the larger meeting of the stakeholders on the contentious issues between the Ekiti State University management and union leaders on Friday.

Adegbuyi took time to review the previous meetings held with the Union Leaders, the University Management and what led the committees to the level of inviting the Commissioner for Education, Accountant General’s Office and the Ministry of Finance.

In his brief explanations, the Vice-Chancellor of the Ekiti State University, Prof Edward Olanipekun said he empathised with workers over the current situation in the University.

The Vice-Chancellor said the University management was not oblivious of the precarious financial situation in the institution though, the University had achieved so much under the administration of Dr John Kayode Fayemi, and intimated the meeting of some of the achievements.

It was gathered that he also expressed his concerns on the amputated salaries in the months of Sept and October 2020.

Prof Olanipekun, also reacted to some of the agitations of the Union, such as backlog arrears of cooperatives deductions, stagnation of staff, over-bloated staffers, saying they were not the making of his administration.

He clarified too that issues bothering on conversion and advancement in the system were never an automatic arrangement in any University, but only subject to vacancies.

The Vice-Chancellor called on the committees and other stakeholders at the meeting to call the union to order and promised to resolve all lingering issues as soon as they suspend their action.

Stakeholders at the meeting include the Commissioner for Education, Special Adviser to Governor on Tertiary Education, Permanent Secretary Ministry of Finance and Representative of the Accountant General, who were all present.
