Barely one day after the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU,
suspended its 5-month old strike, the University of Nigeria Nsukka,
UNN, has been shut down indefinitely by the institution's workers,
Daily Post reports.
During the serious protest in the University on Wednesday, all the
workers union demanded the immediate sack of the Vice Chancellor,
Prof. Bartho Okolo.
According to Vanguard, it was the largest demonstration of members of
staff of the University of Nigeria Nsukka, UNN, since the university
was founded.
Academic and non-academic workers of both campuses converged on the
campus in a spontaneous peaceful demonstration to demand the
reinstatement of the Chairman of the Governing Council, Prof Emeka
Enejere, who was said to have been suspended.
They chanted songs saying it was the Vice Chancellor, Prof Bartho
Okolo, instead, who should be sacked.
After marching for half of the day and some members of staff addressed
the press at the Freedom Square, they however, dispersed, promising to
return for daily demonstrations until the Council Chairman was
reinstated and other ills of the university which they alleged
originated by Prof Okolo were corrected.

A professor told Vanguard that "the Federal Government would have to
choose between only one man (Okolo) or working with all of us."
It has been gathered that Okolo is accused of corrupt practices and
neglect of due process in running the affairs of the university.
