FUNAAB VC sues for peace, blames crisis on ‘internal politics’
The Vice Chancellor of the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB), Prof. Olusola Oyewole, yesterday urged labour unions and students of the institution to give peace a chance.
Oyewole, who spoke with reporters in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, blamed the crisis rocking the varsity on “internal politics,” adding that he would eventually be vindicated.
He spoke just as the university management set up a committee to look into the causes of the recent protest by students, which led to the destruction of property.
The school authorities, which also postponed the resumption of students indefinitely, said the decision was aimed at preventing future occurrence of such unrest.
Aggrieved members of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) on Wednesday shut the vice chancellor’s lodge as well as the Senate Building during the protest.
