Weekly Trust - - New - Dick­son S. Adama, Jos

The Aca­demic Staff Union of Uni­ver­si­ties (ASUU) Bauchi Zone has ac­cused the com­mit­tee Chair­man and Chief Gov­ern­ment Ne­go­tia­tor, Dr. Wale Ba­bal­akin of frus­trat­ing dis­cus­sions be­tween both par­ties on the rene­go­ti­a­tion of the 2009 agree­ment which was sup­posed to be re­viewed ev­ery three years as a way of repo­si­tion­ing pub­lic uni­ver­si­ties.

Speak­ing at a press con­fer­ence at the end of its zonal mo­bi­liza­tion pro­gramme at ASUU sec­re­tariat, Univer­sity of Jos, the Zonal Co­or­di­na­tor, Pro­fes­sor Lawan Abubakar, said Dr Ba­bal­akin was im­pos­ing his ideas and in most cases hardly show­ing up for meet­ings.

Pro­fes­sor Abubakar ex­plained that Dr. Ba­bal­akin was de­lib­er­ately frus­trat­ing the dis­cus­sion and bring­ing ob­nox­ious poli­cies that were detri­men­tal to pub­lic uni­ver­si­ties, but favoured pri­vate uni­ver­si­ties be­cause he owned one.
