ERELU FAYEMI ADVOCATES FOR VICTIMS OF SEXUAL HARASSEMENT IN EKSU

The wife of Ekiti State Governor and Chairperson of Ekiti State Gender Based Violence Management Committee, Erelu Fayemi has paid an advocacy visit to Ekiti State University, Ado-Ekiti to advocate for violence against female students and women in the University.

Erelu Fayemi who categorized Gender Based Violence to be physical, sexual and psychological said that conventional statistics put victims of one or a combination of those forms of violence at 1 out of 3 women.She explained thatGender Based Violence should be taken seriously as it erodes self-esteem and confidence of the victim, adding that GBV diminishes the capacity of women to fulfill their full potentials.

The Chairperson GBV Ekiti State urged the Authorities of Ekiti State University to adopt a zero tolerance approach to all forms of Gender Based Violence and promote a healthy culture devoid of fear and intimidation since women, who are victims of violent sexual crime are afraid to report for fear of stigma, blame and rejection.  Erelu Fayemi pleaded with EKSU leadership and students to acquaintthemselves with the provisions of the 2019 Ekiti State GBV law and encouraged security personnel to take GBV issues seriously.

The Governor’s wife also requested that the University Authorities make financial, materialand technical resources available for the fight against GBV and to give recognitionto the Gender Based Violence Support Club. She thereafter encouraged EKSU management to provide adequate accommodation for female students with a view to making them less vulnerable for GBV.

The Vice Chancellor, Prof. Edward Olanipekun appreciated the Governor’s wife and thanked her for the prompt attention given to EKSU female students. He promised that his administration would leave no stone unturned as the needful will be done to fulfill the requests of the Gender Based Violence Committee.

JAC 3 Advised to Maintain Decorum

The leadership of three of the staff unions of Ekiti State University, Ado Ekiti comprising Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU),  Non-Academic Staff Unions of Educational and Allied Institutions (NASU) and National Association of Academic Technologists (NAAT) under the auspices of JAC 3 has been advised to maintain decorum while making agitations.
The Vice Chancellor of the University,  Professor Edward Olanipekun gave the advice while reacting to the action of the unions to drive staff out of their offices after their joint Congress meeting held earlier today.
The unions were protesting the sack of some staff by the Governing Council following the consideration and  approval of the staff audit report.
According to the Vice Chancellor, management would not watch and allow the unions to take laws into their hands by preventing those with legitimate businesses on campus to transact their businesses.
There are laid down procedures to be followed under the labour law in  particular if staff unions want to withdraw their services which have not been followed in this case by JAC 3.
Professor Olanipekun also frowned at the situation where law-abiding staff were being driven out of their offices and described the attitude as unethical.
He, therefore, appealed to staff and students to go about their normal duties, while warning that the leadership of JAC 3 would be held responsible in the event of any breakdown of law and order in the University community.

PRESS RELEASE EKSU GOVERNING COUNCIL ADOPTS STAFF AUDIT REPORT

PRESS RELEASE
EKSU GOVERNING COUNCIL ADOPTS STAFF  AUDIT  REPORT
The Governing Council of Ekiti State University has considered the report of the staff audit carried out by a firm of external auditors commissioned to  undertake a general auditing of staff in the university. This is sequel to the findings in the Report of the Visitation Panel as accepted by the Government White Paper to the university which noted among other things that there was over staffing, redundancy and personnel misalignment in virtually all the sections of the university and which astronomically increased the wage bill of the University beyond its capacity to pay.
In a release by the University Public Relations Officer, the Governing Council noted the findings contained in the Report of the External Staff Auditors that:
(1) over 600 workers were employed irregularly against university regulations within the period 2016-2018 thereby causing a major personnel disalignment and skyrocketing off the university wage bill by about 100% within two years.  The situation was so bad in the university that it was the monthly contributions of members of staff who belong to some Cooperative, Thrift and Credit Societies in the University that were partly and on a monthly basis used by the then university administration to pay the salaries of those that were irregularly employed and who interestingly refused to join any of the Cooperative, Thrifts and Credit Societies.
(2) 228 members of staff could not produce/show evidence of Primary School Leaving Certificate
(3) there were some ghost workers whose names were found on the university pay roll without being on the university nominal role.
(4) some members of staff presented falsified birth and educational certificates.
(5) some of the members of staff lacked the required basic educational qualification.
(6) some members of staff were illegally retained in the university services after having been due to retire.
(7) there are other cases of over-aged staff.
(8) some others lacked the required basic educational qualification.
Consequently after due consideration of the issues involved, and the overall best interest of the university in being properly positioned for local relevance and global competitiveness, the Governing Council of Ekiti State University has directed that those who were found to have fallen into the categories listed in 1-8 above be disengaged of their appointments forthwith in accordance with the university regulations.

The Governing Council of Ekiti State University, Ado Ekiti has approved the dismissal of Mr. Olola Olaleye Aduwo for sexually harassing a female student and two others for abandoning their duty posts.
Mr. Aduwo, a Lecturer 1 in the Department of Accounting was found culpable of sexually harassing a female student of his Department.
The University Governing Council, at its 135th meeting held on 5th December 2019 approved the recommendations of the Senior Staff Disciplinary Committee (Academic) that recommended his dismissal.
It will be recalled that Mr. Aduwo was captured in a video that went viral a few months ago being molested for sexually harassing a female student.
The University thereafter instituted a preliminary investigation panel which forwarded its findings to the University Management. The findings were later considered by the Senior Staff Disciplinary Committee. The Committee considered the overwhelming evidence against Mr. Aduwo and invited him to clear himself.
 Mr. Aduwo, however, admitted to the allegations and confirmed the authenticity of the report of the preliminary panels before which he appeared.
The Governing Council, at its meeting, approved the recommendations of the Committee that Mr. Aduwo be dismissed from the services of the University with effect from 7th October 2019.
In a similar development, the Governing Council approved the dismissal of Mr Temitope Olusegun Cephas Faleye and Dr. Adebanji Kayode Adegoke with effect from 7th June, 2019 and 11th July 2019 respectively for abandoning their duty posts.
