One of them was dismissed for demanding N50, 000 from students while Mr. Adeyemi-Suenu was sacked for “unilaterally altering the results of 12 students already advised to withdraw by Senate’’
Mr Adekoya said the council established that ASUU member demanded N50, 000 from 2003 final year students of Political Science Education on the sandwich programme to process their results.
According to the council, he was found culpable of attempt to obtain money for himself as an inducement to carry out his duties, and consequently dismissed from the service of the university.
Mr Adekoya said the university established that another ASUU member unilaterally altered the results of 12 students already advised to withdraw by Senate in the Department of History and International Studies in the 2015/2016 academic session.
When contacted, one of the affected ASUU members, said the union is handling the matter.
