Authorities of Adekunle Ajasin University,Akungba Akoko (AAUA) Ondo State have recalled five leaders of Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) suspended last Month by the University Management.
In a letter signed by the Registrar of the institution,R.T Olotu, the AAAU management withdrew the earlier query issued to the suspended lecturers and directed them to resume work immediately.
Lawyer to ASUU and the affected lecturers,Charles Titiloye confirmed the development.
He noted that his clients have also briefed him to stay further legal action against the University in the law Court since the authorities has rescinded the unlawful suspension of the lecturers.
It would be recalled that the lecturers were suspended last Month after the University aborted the zonal meeting of ASUU slated for the University.
The ASUU, AAUA Chairman, Dr Busuyi Mekusi and Olusegunota Bolarinwa were allegedly assaulted during the meeting by the University internal Security which prompted Ondo state Commissioner of Police to order an investigation.
The ASUU Chairman was later suspended with other four members of the Union by the University authority at the wake of the crisis.
Their Counsel, Titiloye had last month issued a statutory one Month Pre-action notice on AAUA Vice Chancellor, Prof Femi Mimiko on the intention of the lecturers to challenge their suspension at the Industrial Court.
The one month notice expired last week.
During the crisis, the NEC of ASUU national level dispatched a team of its leaders, led by Prof. Dipo Fasina to the institution to resolve the impasse amicably between the lecturers and the University authority. They subsequently met with the University authority on several occasions.
The lecturers officially resumed from suspension on Monday. (Daily Post)
