UNIOSUN: “Labode Popoola used his position as VC to victimise us and withhold our salaries – Staff

“Popoola is a VC that came and used his position to victimise us, to withhold our salaries, and that is why we are celebrating his exit. We are happy that he is gone and gone forever.

Prof Popoola’s tenure ended on November 4, 2021, and the Governing Council appointed Professor Adefemi Afeez Bello as Acting Vice-Chancellor.
The workers in their celebration swept the premises of the Vice-Chancellor’s office to the school gate and later ate the bean cake as a sign of good-bye to Popoola amid dancing, singing and frying of bean cake.
They hung a banner on the Senate Building of the campus bearing the picture of Popoola and the inscriptions read: “With gratitude to God, the entire staff of Osun State University celebrate the inglorious exit of a mischievous tyrant, Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Labode Popoola.”

Addressing the workers, the Chairman of NASU, Comrade Isaiah Fayemi, alleged that the former VC interdicted workers for protesting against his alleged corrupt practices, adding that the Chairman of Joint Action Committee of the university, Comrade Lekan Adiat and five others are currently interdicted.
“Popoola is a VC that came and used his position to victimise us, to withhold our salaries, and that is why we are celebrating his exit. We are happy that he is gone and gone forever,” Fayemi said.

However, the Public Relations Officer of the institution, Ademola Adesoji berated the action of the staff, adding that majority of the staff and students of the UNIOSUN love the former VC.

He said, “Students and staff of UNIOSUN love Pro Laboode. The student union gave him an award and made him their patron, the Alumni also gave him gifts and lauded him for performing excellently.”
