ASUU FUTO chairman sacked:

According to a statement released on Friday, August 11 by the acting chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) at the Federal University of Technology, Owerri (FUTO), Comrade Frank Ojiako, the former chairman of the union, Comrade Chinedu Ihejirika, has been removed from his position.

ASUU FUTO chairman sacked:

Ojiako and the acting secretary of ASUU FUTO, Comrade Chinyere Onwachu, made the announcement during a meeting of stakeholders at the university's campus in Owerri.

Revealing why Ihejirika was sacked, Ojiako said it is based on;

“Failure to present financial reports to the congress for almost two years. as against the constitutional stipulation of quarterly presentation. This is a serious constitutional breach that is both reprehensive and unacceptable.

“The treasurer of the union is the principal signatory to the ASUU FUTO bank accounts ,it is a constitutional requirement that in the unforseen absence of the treasurer, Congress should be convened to elect a new treasurer.

“The chairperson of the suspended exco has been unable to conduct election to fill the vacant position of the office treasurer of the union who has been on leave of absence to the United States for the past one year.

”In order to restore normalcy and safeguard our common patrimony ,it therefore became necessary that the ASUU exco ,as then constituted should be constitutionally jettisoned ,having outlived its usefulness. A congress was contravened and the lackkuster exco unanimously suspended and a new exco appointed on the interim basis.

“We inform that a committee of elders , made of very eminent professors have intervened to make peace. On our part, the acting executive has accepted their recommendations and are very desirous of peace in our highly revered citadel.”
