Alleged Fraud: Varsity senate passes confidence vote on FUOYE VC
By Demola Atobaba
The Senate of the Federal University Oye-Ekiti (FUOYE) has passed a vote of confidence on the administration of the vice chancellor of the institution, Prof. Abayomi Sunday Fasina, for what she described as exemplary leadership which has produced great and admirable achievement during his few months in office.
This was just as the students of the university have dissociated themselves from a statement by the National Association of Universities Students (NAUS), led by Ibrahim Muhammed Lawal, which accused the VC of misconduct.
The development was revealed in a statement made available to Orient Daily by the special adviser on media matters to the VC, Mr. Wole Balogun on Thursday.
Balogun, in his statement, said the vote was taken at senate “44th statutory meeting held at the Faculty of Science auditorium on June 16, 2021” against the backdrop of “various false news being perpetrated by unscrupulous elements through the uncensored social media.”
The statement implied that the VC’s achievements in the institution formed the basis of the vote, going on to list such achievements.
In another development, Balogun said that the Federal University, Oye-Ekiti Students’ Union Government, (FUOYESU), had disassociated itself from the allegations levelled by a group, called National Association of Universities Students (NAUS), led by one Ibrahim Muhammed Lawal.
Balogun said that a statement made available to the media office of the VC, and signed by FUOYESU president, Mr. Johnson Alabi, condemned Lawal and his statement, saying: ‘We strongly condemn this very egregious and laughable allegation by these unscrupulous fellows.”
While urging the public to dismiss Lawal’s allegations as falsehood and worthless, Alabi said: “The students’ welfare has been the number-one priority since Prof. Fasina has assumed office, students have been able to enjoy a lot of benefits.”
