Workers and students of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun State, on Friday jubilated following the dissolution of the university’s governing council by the Federal Government.

The dissolution of the governing council headed by Prof. Ndoma Egba was said to have been announced on the Nigerian Television Authority late night Thursday.

The Public Relations Officer of the OAU, Mr. Biodun Olanrewaju, also confirmed the dissolution in Osogbo on Friday.

“I also saw the advertorial announcing the dissolution,” Olanrewaju said.

The Chairman of the Non Academic Staff Union in the university, Mr. Wole Odewumi, told our correspondents that members of his union and those of the Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Universities had been jubilating following the dissolution.

Odewumi said the appointment of the new Vice Chancellor, Prof. Ayobami Salami, had also been nullified.

He said the Federal Government would appoint an acting vice chancellor to direct the affairs of the university pending the constitution of a new governing council which would appoint a substantive VC.

The NASU chairman said workers had shut down the university’s senate building with the aim of preventing vital documents and property of the university from being stolen.

He said, “We are very happy today. We have been jubilating since we heard the announcement.

“Yes, it is true that the Federal Government has dissolved the governing council.

“We are still monitoring activities at the university’s senate building; we don’t want anything to be stolen from the place.”
