The non-teaching members of staff of the University of Ibadan have reacted to the statements of the university senate condemning their recent protest over the appointment of a new vice-chancellor for the institution.
The chairman of the Joint Action Committee (JAC) said they had earlier written to the outgoing vice-chancellor and the pro-chancellor of the institution on the flaws they saw in the appointment.
They alleged that their letter was not allowed to reach the chairman of the governing council who said some of the issues raised were not communicated to him.
The unions wondered when it had become the responsibility of the senate to seat on union matters.
The unions also called on government to strengthen academic quality.
It will be recalled that the non-teaching staff unions of the University of Ibadan had alleged that the current vice-chancellor, Abel Olayinka was trying to impose an unpopular candidate on the institution.
