In the petition were allegations of pension fraud, financial corruption, nepotism and other serious offences allegedly perpetrated by these actors at the University of Ilorin.
A statement signed by the Ibadan Zone Co-ordinator of the union, Dr. Ade Adejumo, said: “The union is unable to fathom the rationale behind this long silence of your agency over the reported corruption cases at the University of Ilorin.
“Our union is surprised that your agency has not invited the alleged offenders and has not taken any step towards bringing them to justice. Our apprehension is compounded by the fact that, not too long ago, the spokesperson of University of Ilorin, Mr. Kunle Akogun, in a radio programme reported that your agency without recourse to due process has ‘thrown the petition into dust bin.’”
ASUU, therefore, asked the agency to immediately make its findings on these very serious allegations public and bring the affected persons to justice.According to it, making the findings public “will not only instil public confidence in the operations of your agency but also absolve your agency of double standards and collusion with criminals to suppress justice.”
