Benue Varsity Tension Due to Supposed ASUU Plot Against VC

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) is purportedly calling for the dismissal of Professor Tor Iorapuu, the vice chancellor of Benue State University, Makurdi, which is causing friction at the university.

ASUU is now on strike to further its demands, however some education industry players argue that the union has the authority and legitimacy to call for the resignation of a vice chancellor who is currently in office.

Sources at the citadel maintained that the ongoing strike has nothing to do with the welfare of workers as the university is up to date with payment of salaries and earned allowances.

According to some of them, students of the university are already planning to stage a mega protest in Makurdi, the Benue State capital over the prolonged strike which started in the wake of examinations commencement.

They maintained that the ongoing strike is unconnected with the welfare of members as is usually the case, but about personal issues being advanced by those who were said to have lost out in their pursuit for the vice chancellorship position.

It was gathered that the policies of Professor Iorapuu with regards toΒ  financial management is one of the issues most staff at the management level are not comfortable with, hence the lingering crises.
