The Senate, Obafemi Awolowo University met today 20th December, 2016 to review and discuss the above issue among other things relating to the Security, Peace and Order on the University Campus and resolved as follows:

1. That the three hundred thousand Naira (N300,000) to the Senior and one hundred and fifty thousand Naira (Nl 50,000) to Junior Staff became necessary in pursuit of the general powers and mandate of the Acting Vice-Chancellor as the Chief Security Officer on Campus to maintain peace, law and order and to prevent loss of lives and property. Moreso, this similar allowance had been paid to staff in other universities under different names and titles.

Hence, the payment was perfectly in order. In the light of the foregoing, the invitation already made was considered misplaced, embarrassing and it was patently an harassment to the Senate and the University Community.

This should be stopped henceforth.
