Universities, Non-Academic Staff Union and

to protest against shortfalls in payment of
salaries and illegal deduction in pension since
Some of the students who reside on the campus
told News Agency Nigeria that staying was
becoming unbearable due to their inability to
access water and electricity.
They called on the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Idowu
Olayinka, to find a way to resolve issues with the
Director of Communication of the university,
Olatunji Oladejo, said he was in a management
meeting hence could not react immediately.
