The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) on Friday described the virtual matriculation organised by the vice-chancellor, Osun State University, Prof. Labode Popoola, as “a scam.”
The association in a statement in Ibadan accused the vice-chancellor of aiming to use the matriculation to get financial favours from the federal government.
The union in the statement by the Ibadan zonal coordinator, Prof. Ade Adejumo, further described the virtual matriculation as “a charade.”
It read in part, “In the UNIOSUN’s vice-chancellor’s heart of hearts can he honestly beat his chest that all the students of that University have wherewithal to key into his e-learning platform. Moreso, given the fact that majority of the students are from very humble backgrounds, is this policy not a ploy to shut out such students from accessing the teaching and learning interaction? Mr. Vice-chancellor should come out clearly to tell the nation what his real motives are? We suspect the motivation here is financial rather than altruistic.”No tags for this post.
