ASUU Rejects New JAMB Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede Alase Damilola

The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has
kicked against the appointment of former Vice Chancellor
of University of Ilorin, Professor Ishaq Oloyede as JAMB
Calling for his probe, the union added that his era as Vice
Chancellor was characterized with anti-democratic and
anti-union antecedents.
ASUU President, Professor Biodun Ogunyemi while
addressing journalists in Lagos said: “Given our inside
knowledge of his anti-democratic and anti-union
antecedents, Professor Oloyede is the last person that we
expected to be so honoured with a national appointment of
that status in the education sector.”
According to Ogunyemi, Oloyede‘s anti-workers stance
stood out in the case of the sacked UNILORIN 49.
“He led the administration’s team to as far as Lagos to
testify falsely against the workers before the Industrial
Arbitration Panel,” Ogunyemi said.
“As VC of UNILORIN, the system was manipulated to
favour his son and daughter and within weeks, gave them
awards for overseas training despite explicit regulations
against the practice.”
He also said that in May 2012, Professor Oloyede as VC,
suddenly doubled the amount of pension being deducted
from UNILORIN staff under the pretext that the deductions
were not enough.
“The above represent some of the reasons why the Union
is appalled that Oloyede has been offered an appointment
to head the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board.
“The Union has resolved to lodge an official complaint with
the appropriate authorities and to demand investigation
into the activities of Oloyede while in office as VC of
UNILORIN,” he said.
