SSANU kicks against move to establish new university by Ondo govt
The Ranking Staff Relationship of Nigerian Colleges, SSANU has depicted as untrustworthy the move by the Ondo State Government to lay out one more college in the state.
While censuring the proposed foundation of another college, the SSANU part of Adekunle Ajasin College, Akungba-Akoko, AAUA, contended that the current ones are underfunded and college laborers are owed north of ten months compensations.
Confidant Tayo Ogungbeni who is the Director, SSANU-AAUA in an explanation gave on Thursday focused on that four years after the execution of the New Public The lowest pay permitted by law in Nigeria, none of the tertiary establishments in the state has carried out it for its work force.
The Lead representative Oluwarotimi Akeredolu-drove organization, had, last week reported plans to redesign the state-claimed Rufus Giwa Polytechnic, Owo, RUGIPO, to a college.
The state government in the wake of setting up a seven-part board of trustees to investigate the modalities for the overhaul, stressed that the move is depended on the mandates of the Central Government that all Polytechnics either be changed over completely to colleges or be subsidiary with existing ones.
The SSANU Executive who scowled at the move, scrutinized that “Is our concern foundation of Colleges or working on the financing of the current ones? Our Lead representative ought to assist the current colleges with contending well with other sisters’ colleges around the world.”
Companion Ogungbeni added, “Underfunding is the sign of the multitude of tertiary organizations in Ondo State containing three state-claimed Colleges and a Polytechnic, yet, the foundation of a fourth College is very nearly settled.
“At the Administrative level, the public authority is doing everything humanly conceivable to ‘kill’ state funded colleges since government authorities can helpfully send their wards to private colleges and, surprisingly, abroad! For what reason will a sensible government that flopped in its liabilities rebuff the laborers with no work, and no compensation? Tragically college schooling is perched on black powder.”
