The Union of Tutorial Employees of Universities, Adekunle Ajasin College, Akungba-Akoko, a department of the State of Ondo appealed to the state governor, Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu, and different stakeholders within the state to avoid wasting the establishment from collapse.
The union stated the college was affected by a scarcity of funding and urgently wanted the state authorities to come back to its rescue to reserve it from collapse.
Union president Dr. Simon Ehiabhi, at a information convention on Sunday, stated there was a necessity for pressing monetary intervention and elevated funding for the varsity to run easily by the state authorities.
In response to him, the month-to-month grant to the college within the tutorial session 2015/2016 was N212.5 million, however the fund had been diminished to N148 million by the state authorities since 2017.
He stated: “The union, subsequently, finds it obscure the explanation behind the discount in price range allocation for a rising college like AAUA by the state authorities.
“The drop within the month-to-month grant and price range allocation for the college is negatively affecting the college’s capability to satisfy its obligations, together with the immediate cost of salaries and the discharge of union and cooperative deductions.
“It’s subsequently disheartening to notice that, due to the drastic drop in subsidy, which equates to underfunding, the college is owing ASUU-AAUA over N12m as membership verification charges, whereas the Tutorial Employees Cooperative Multipurpose Society is being owed over N100m, that are deductions from the salaries of educational workers. “
Ehiabhi, who famous that the establishment’s workers members weren’t glad with the event, requested the federal government to rescue the varsity from its present monetary scenario.
