The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Ibadan Zone, has called on the Vice Chancellor of University of Ilorin, Prof. AbdulGaniyu Ambali.
ASUU wants the VC to step down to allow for an independent investigation of fraud allegations brought against him.
The union called on the Ministry of Education, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), and Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC) to “act quickly to avoid any insinuation of complicity.”
In a statement by the Chairman, Dr Ade Adejumo and Secretary, Dr. Deji Omole, it said the call for Ambali’s resignation became imperative following the monumental fraud revealed by an investigative report of The Nation newspaper.
The statement said: “At this point, the union has no option but to call on the Vice Chancellor of the University of Ilorin, Prof. AbdulGaniyu Ambali, to honourably resign his appointment in view of the weight of these allegations, to allow for an independent investigation.
“This is the civilised practice. In the alternative, the union calls on the Ministry of Education and crime authorities to act quickly to avoid any insinuation of complicity.”
