According to the document, the Appointments, Promotions and Disciplinary Committee is headed by Prof. Musiliu ‎Onilude.

The committee is to investigate, analyse, and come up with appropriate recommendations on the allegations of non-payment of salary increment arrears, high-handedness and double standards.

It will also address the alleged harassment, intimidation and victimisation of staff and students, engaging in other gainful employments and non-implementation of New Career Structure for Academic Technologists among others.

The Infrastructure and Maintenance Committee, Chaired by Kayode Anibaba, is to investigate and come up with recommendations on the ‎allegations of replacement of damaged vehicle among others.

The Committee on Withdrawal of Certificate, headed by Prof. Adedayo Ninalowo, will investigate and make recommendations on the alleged withdrawal of certificate by the ASUU-LASU Chairman ‎against the university authorities.

It said that the Finance ‎and Funds Management Committee, headed by the Chairman, Ken Igbokwe, would investigate and make recommendations on the allegation of Misuse of University Funds among others.

According to the bulletin, the Condition of Service Committee is headed by Akinsanya Ajose.

The Ajose-led committee is to investigate and make recommendations as they affect Non-adoption and Implementation of Agreed Conditions of Service between the Staff Unions and the University.

It said that the Special Committee chaired Pro‎f. Musiliu Onilude, would investigate and come up with recommendations as they affect allegations of Discouraging Research and Genuine Scholarship among others.

``Consequently, members of the university community who have contributions to make should ‎please forward their submissions to the secretary of the relevant Ad-Hoc Committees through the Principal Assistant Registrar, Council Division,’’ it said.
