Probe ASUU! -Group Tells Police (See Why)

A civil society group has urged the Nigeria police to investigate officials of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) over the hacked website of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB).
The group, Concerned Stakeholders in Education and Governance said the officials must be investigated to ascertain the roles in the hacked website.

 A statement jointly signed by group’s president Bala Kuta and its secretary general Silas Awulu said the CSEG condemns the statement credited to the ASUU University of Ibadan chapter’s chairman Deji Omole. Omole had called for the sack of Ishaq Oloyede, JAMB’s registrar, and scrapping of the examination bodyBut in his reaction, Kuta said CSEG view Omole’s statement against Oloyede and the examination body as a plot to sabotage the admission process in Nigeria.

He said the plot is also aimed a favouring syndicates that some dubious lecturers, who are no doubt ASUU members, use for populating the nation’s higher institutions with mediocre candidates.We also demand that the Police should further probe the hackers of the JAMB website to see if there is any nexus between the criminals and members of ASUU, University of Ibadan that they can go any length to destroy Professor Oloyede and his good reforms for Nigeria,” Kuta said.

Recall that the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) arrested five suspects in this regard. We think that it is no coincidence that some of these suspects were arrested in Oyo state, where Dr Omole is based, in addition to the others caught in Ogun and Borno state.He added that the solution ASUU’s tactics is simply to get back at the chief executive of a government agency.

The group said the statement attributed to the University of Ibadan ASUU chapter chairman on scrapping of JAMB is a ploy to sabotage the education in NigeriaHe said that members of ASUU have focused on the perennial demand for increase in their wages while leaving the welfare and quality of education to the dogs that they cannot appreciate trends in education.Even as it tries to remove the speck from another’s eye, in the ultimate insult to Nigerians, ASUU has refused to address the numerous cases of cultism, examination malpractice and sexual abuses perpetrated by its members on Nigerian campuses.

 “It is therefore ridiculous that it has appointed itself into a tribunal over the Governing Board of JAMB. “We therefore call on the University of Ibadan Chapter of ASUU and Dr Omole to apologize to Nigerians for calling for the scrapping of JAMB,” Kuta added.

Naija React: See What Nigerians Are Saying About Suspended Covenant Varsity Students!

Several Nigerians have condemned the suspension of students of Covenant University, Sango-Ota, Ogun State for not attending the Easter Youth Alive Programme recently organised by the faith-based institution.

This is even as the university stressed that the need to build total students informed its discipline culture.

The concerned people have asked the university to rescind the decision and recall the students who have been sent home.

According to them, university education, whether in a faith-based or secular institutions, should allow freedom of worship and expression.

An economist, Mr. El Khalil ,  warned that if  the punishment was allowed to take effect, those affected might never recover from the psychological and emotional impact of the action.

He said, “Yes, there are rules governing Covenant University, but there is also the existence of the rule of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, which guarantees freedom of worship. The nation’s rules are more superior to the extant rules of Covenant University.

“I think it’s high time parents of  these students challenged the excesses of this institution  in court.”

Meanwhile,  although efforts to speak with the university’s Public Relations Officer on whether or not the school will reconsider its stance, it stressed on its website that the vision it had for students made it imperative for it to pursue discipline vigorously.

It stated on its Students Affairs section of its website, “The high demand placed on discipline as a fundamental requirement for making a total graduate as embedded in the core values of Covenant University makes it imperative to pursue it with the required doggedness.”
