NIGERIAN LECTURER SLUMPS, DIES AS ASUU LAMENTS HEAVY WORKLOAD
Ojediran Oyedele, a lecturer at the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) Ile-Ife, Osun State, died on Tuesday.
Mr Oyedele’s death was Confirmed by the chairperson of the university’s chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Anthony Odiwe, and the National Coordinator of the Congress of Universities Academics (CONUA), ‘Niyi Sunmonu.
The two union leaders spoke in separate messages to our reporter.
“It is true, it is very shocking and devastating. He was full of life before his untimely death,” Mr Odiwe said.
The university spokesperson, Abiodun Olarewaju, has also confirmed the development.
The lecturer, who teaches at the faculty of education, slumped in his office on Tuesday morning and was rushed by his son and other lecturers to the university health centre, according to one of his students, Emmanuel Adedapo.
“It was in the morning around 8a.m. It was his first son, who is also a student of OAU, and some lecturers that took him to the health centre. And he died at the health centre. They could not rescue him,” he said.
He did not give details of the lecturer’s son.
‘Our members are stressed’
Meanwhile, the OAU ASUU chairperson, Mr Odiwe, said academic staff in the university are overwhelmed and overstretched.
He said some of the academics have retired while others have left the university system as a result of the harsh working conditions. Yet, he said they have not been replaced.
“This is one of the issues of the union, sincerely. We cannot continue like this,” he said.
“Our members are seriously under stress and pressure from work-related issues. Some of our members are retired, some left the system because of the conditions of service and the working environment that is not conducive. So fewer hands are now available to do the work of so many,” he added.

The University authorities wish to state categorically that what happened in the viral video, is not in the University’s character. The University is a decent and diligent institution, which will not tolerate any form of abuse or maltreatment from anyone. The University authorities, therefore, apologise to the generality of the people, especially our alumni, whose sensibilities might have been assaulted by that shenanigan.
The University authorities appeal to the students to remain calm and go about their normal academic activities. All stakeholders are assured that justice will be served accordingly and appropriately.
President Tinubu Cancels 40% IGR Deduction From Universities
President Bola Tinubu has announced the immediate cancellation of the automatic deduction of 40% from the internally generated revenues (IGR) of federal universities, citing the ill-timed nature of the policy.
Mr Tinubu spoke on Friday at an ongoing 75th Founder’s Day ceremony of the University of Ibadan (UI). He was represented by the Minister of Education, Tahir Mamman.
In his speech as the Visitor to the university, Mr Tinubu pledged his commitment to the reform of the nation’s education sector as the bedrock for national development.
“The 40 per cent IGR automatic deduction policy stands cancelled. This is not the best time for such policy since our universities are struggling.” Tinubu said.
The policy was originally to commence in November. Universities will have 40 percent of revenues generated internally and deposited in their accounts will be deducted automatically by the government via the Treasury Single Accounts (TSA).
Dated 17 October with reference R&I/2045/T/252, and signed by the Director of Revenue and Investment Department, Felix Ogundairo, the letter noted that the decision which affects all partially funded government agencies and parastatals including universities is in line with the provisions of Section 62 of Finance Act 2020.
