The Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko (AAUA) in Ondo State, has explained why it suspended six lecturers. It said its action should not be seen as an attack on the leadership of staff unions.
The suspension, it said, was a “routine administrative procedure” aimed at restoring sanity and order.

The lecturers were suspended for alleged disruption of the board meetings of some departments and faculties. They were suspended barely three weeks after the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) suspended its three-month strike.
A statement by the Registrar, Mr Michael Ayeerun, accused the lecturers of indiscipline, saying they went round the campus to disrupt activities and prevent their colleagues from carrying out their duties.

Ayeerun said: “The management wishes to put the records straight by clearing the air on the recent development in the institution. For the sake of clarity and avoidance of doubt, management wishes to state that the recent suspension of some lecturers is not an attack on the leadership of any staff union, but mere administrative process aimed at restoring sanity and order.
“The suspended lecturers went round the campus disrupting academic activities, and preventing their colleagues from carrying out their assigned academic and administrative duties. The lecturers were suspended in line with the extant laws of the university, after a Head of Department (HOD) and a Dean wrote to management, alleging physical and verbal assaults on them. The lecturers disrupted departmental and faculty board meetings.

“It should be noted that the suspended lecturers committed indiscipline barely a week after the ASUU called off its over three-month strike and the Senate directed departments and faculties to submit all students’ outstanding results.
“We wish to state that the campaign of calumny on the social and mass media, alleging victimisation and vendetta by the management is far from the truth.
Ayeerun said the lecturers’ suspension had not stopped academic activities, enjoining members of the university community and the public to disregard insinuations that the disciplinary measures meted out to the erring lecturers were aimed at the staff union.

He added: “The suspension has nothing to do with the leadership of ASUU, because other executive members of the union were not involved in the unruly action perpetrated by the suspended lecturers. Hence, the leadership of the union was not targeted by the suspension.”

Don not get stuck at the well of argument. Let God be your vindicator. Let Him fight your battles. He will vindicate you better than you can vindicate yourself.
