Give Peace A Chance, Allow Mrs Oladiji Enjoy Her Tenure As FUTA Vice-chancellor – Women Affairs Minister Tells ASUU

In a statement made known to Students Mirror, the Minister of Women Affairs expressed disappointment over the alleged rejection of Professor Adenike Oladiji as the 8th substantive Vice Chancellor of FUTA. The alleged statement, signed by the Ministry’s head, Dame Pauline Tallen, reads in part;

 

“I received with shock the news that the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) of Federal University of Technology, Akure (FUTA) is reportedly kicking against the appointment of Professor Adenike Oladiji as the 8th substantive Vice Chancellor of the institution at a time when Affirmative Action has taken sway in National Development

 

“ I have earlier had cause to laud the Ambassador (Dr) Godknows Igali-led Governing council of FUTA for being proactive in this regard. The decision truly resonates with the current demand for more women representation at all levels of decision-making…..”

 

“The submission of ASUU-FUTA that they only “found problems with the process at the very end of the procedure for the appointment of the VC when the Governing Council had to pick from the list of the three candidates submitted to it” further watered down their argument as the Governing Council only picked Prof. Adenike through a consensus by voting.

 

“As the Honourable Minister of women Affairs at this time, I want to appeal to the aggrieved party to give peace a chance and allow Prof. Oladij to enjoy her tenure as the VC of FUTA with all, including ASUU-FUTA queuing behind her to make a difference in the Vice-Chancellorship of the great institution”
