DSC 0576The Vice-Chancellor, Federal University, Oye-Ekiti, Prof Isaac Asuzu, has warned the union leaders against stoking the fire of crisis that could pit the management against the entire workforce, saying the university authority would not hesitate to wield the big stick against unruly staff.

The unions were: Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, Non-Academic Staff Union and National Association of Technologists, which had gone on strike over non-payment of the allowances to the 1,469 workers in the university.

Asuzu, who was reacting to the sit-down strike embarked on by the three major unions in the university in recent time, described the agitations for immediate payment of hazard and relocation allowances as practically impossible as of now, in view of paucity of funds in the four-year old university.

Asuzu also dispelled the impression by striking  union leaders that the hazard allowance could be defrayed through the funds from pre-degree programme, saying university realizes a sum of N21 million annually from the programme , while it requires a sum of N37.1 million monthly to pay the allowance.

He also denied the insinuation milling rounds that the university is owing five months salary of workers, describing the information as an attempt by some recalcitrant union leaders to discredit the management.

“This is a university and we have a process through which a worker can embark on strike, if anybody violates the process, he will face disciplinary action. This is not a lawless place, but whatever action I take is not against any individual, but the law governing a university must not be broken

“ASUU, SSANU and NAT have opted out of the strike when they knew we had a good case. But it was only the NASU that was recalcitrant. But we thank God that it has also suspended its own strike last Friday”, he said

The Vice Chancellor, who rated the university high compared with other eight universities established by ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, said all the 29 courses being run in the institution have been accredited by National Universities Commission.
