Tension in OAU as EFCC summons new Vice Chancellor

13 December 2016, 15:00

Ife -  The Economic and Financial Crimes commission has summoned the Acting Vice Chancellor of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Anthony Elujoba, Premium Times reports.

A letter, signed by Oseni Kazeem of the Southwest Zonal Office of the commission in Ibadan, Oyo State, advised the VC and the school’s bursar, Aderonke Akeredolu, to come along with necessary documents.

The letter reads in part, “The office is currently investigating a case in which there is the need to obtain clarification from you. In view of the foregoing, you and your bursar are requested to report to our office for an interview.

“You are also to come along with the following documents: the salary payment schedule/any other payment made to senior staff and junior staff in August and September, 2016; payment vouchers relating to furniture allowances paid to the VC from the day he assumed office to date; certified true copies of the monthly salary pay slips of the VC from the day he assumed office to date.”

The acting Vice Chancellor has been accused of paying allowances without approval.

It was learnt that a petition was written by an unnamed OAU Staff to the EFCC, who complained about the allowances.

The Public Relations Officer said the money spent could not be said to have been misappropriated.

Students of the Obafemi Awolowo University had earlier in the year called on anti-graft agencies to arrest and prosecute the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Bamitale Omole, for allegedly mismanaging the university’s resources according to News24.

The students under the aegis of Alliance of Nigerian Students Against Neo-Liberal Attacks staged a public protest in Osogbo, the Osun state capital.
