The Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun State has been shut down indefinitely following protest from Non Academic Staff of Universities (NASU) and Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (SSANU) over appointment of the institution’s new vice chancellor, Prof. Ayobami Salami.

The workers without giving heed to the ‘no work’, ‘no pay’ threat by the university’s authorities, went ahead to intensify their protest over what they call imposition of a Vice Chancellor on them as well as non-payment of their allowances.

According to them, the new Vice Chancellor’s appointment was illegal and they will ensure he does not resume office by Thursday.

Sequel to this development, the university’s authorities decided to poo down the institution.

According to the Registrar of the school, Dotun Awoyemi, the closure was to ensure the safety of students and staff.

In an announcement, the Registrar said, “We have shut down the university indefinitely pending the time that we will resolve issues with our workers – NASU and SSANU. We have asked our newly students to go home and postponed the resumption of old students indefinitely.”
