Ondo varsity on verge of collapse, says ASUU

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko (AAUA) branch has raised the alarm over possible collapse of the institution under Governor of Oluwarotimi Akeredolu due to underfunding. It said there was no reason to reduce budgetary allocation to the institution when the academic staff increased from 382 in the 2015/2016 academic session to 456 with 45 of them being Professors and the academic programmes increased from 61 to 63. Rising from its congress at the weekened, the AAUA ASUU said it was worrisome that staffers of the institution have been on amputated net salaries for the past three years while four months salaries were yet to be paid. Branch chairman of the institution, Dr. Simon Ehiabhi, who spoke to newsmen on the outcome of the meeting called for urgent financial intervention and increased funding (subvention) by Governor Akeredolu.
