Suspended ASUU Chairman Exposes The Person Behind His Woes....

The Suspended Chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, Ambrose Alli University chapter, Prof. Monday Igbafen, on Thursday defended himself from the accusation levelled against him.



Speaking to newsmen in Benin City, Prof. Igbafen, an Associate Professor in the Department of Philosophy, who was suspended for alleged s#xual harassment,said he was being victimized for his non compromising approach to acts of impunity exhibited by the VC.


Igbafen said wife of the Vice Chancellor was elevated to the position of lecturer 1 from a position of a typist.
According to him, “We (ASUU) challenged him to be open and transparent. You cannot move your wife from nowhere and make her a lecturer 1 without a PHD and academic master’s degree. We have been on the matter and he has made attempts to compromise me as the chairman of the union and I refused.

“That led to his desperation to insist that I should never be chairman of ASUU for a second time.The university has collected more than N5.5billion for the past five years. From the TETFUND he has received more than N3.4billion while that from NEEDS Assessment is more than N1.2billion.The union is demanding for how he has utilized these funds. Is it a sin to demand for how he has utilised our funds?”


But spokesman for the university, Mr. Edward Aihevba, said there are other charges against Prof. Igbafen but the issue of s#xual harassment was as a result of a petition from the victim’s family.
Aihevba said the victim and her mother testified before a panel but the former administration did not look into the report.


According to him, “Prof. Igbafen should not be shouting. He is afraid that he is sinking. He should face the music. There are other things he did and at the appropriate time, he will be made to answer for them

  4. As long as he was nailed on concrete evidence. Why didn't he write any petition against the erring VC before now apart from "discussing" it amongst themselves and with him? All their atrocities are only coming to light now because dem don scatter. He too obviously expected the VC to cover up for him since he knew his secrets but VC borrowed sense when the matter entered ICPC level. Anyway, the VC too should start looking for a job because this guy doesn't want to go down alone. Their ship don sink.

    Looks like sexual harassment is about to be wiped out from our tertiary institutions though. Seems like it's no longer business as usual. Good!
