A total of 257 academic staff of the Michael
Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike, Abia
State have pulled out of the Academic Staff
Union of Universities (ASUU) over the role of the
national president, Dr Nasir Isa Fagge in the case
of corruption and mismanagement leveled
against a member of the National Executive
Council of the association, Dr Uzochukwu
Onyebinama.
The affected staff is accusing the national
president, which they claim is currently at war
with the management of the institution for taking
disciplinary measures against one of its own, Dr
Onyebinama, the university’s former ASUU
chapter chairman who was indicted for
examination fraud.
Onyebinama who was said to have been indicted
by a committee set up by the management of
the institution to investigate his involvement in
an examination fraud, went to court to challenge
the disciplinary action taken against him by the
university management and afterwards sought
the sympathy of the union’s NEC to shield him
from the mess.
The allegations leveled against Onyebinama
ranged from exam malpractice to
mismanagement of which the Vice Chancellor of
the university, Professor Hilary Edeoga, explained
to be the reason that lead to his suspension and
removal from office as the Director, CEC.
Edeoga further explained that the Onyebinama’s
suspension was as prescribed by the rules of
service of the university concerning fraud and
misconduct and not because of his role as ASUU
chairman.
In a communiqué issued after its congress on
Wednesday October 21, 2015, the chapter
notified all relevant authorities of its resolution to
officially withdraw its membership of the national
union.
Part of the letter reads: “Effecetive Wednesday
21 October 2015, all members of the Academic
Staff Union of Universities, Michael Okpara
University of Agriculture, Umudike, MOUAU
branch cease to belong to and have nothing in
common with the national body of the Academic
Union of Universities, ASUU, currently led by Dr
Nasir F Isa until further notice.
“…all teaching staff in attendance at the
congress whose signatures appear in this
communiqué and those for whom we stand proxy
shall simply be known and addressed as the
Academic Staff, Michael Okpara University of
Agriculture, Umudike, Abia State led by Dr Joseph
Adama as interim chairman and interim
secretary until further notice”.
