ASUU has threatened to sue AAU for failing to verify biometrics

On Wednesday, the Academic Staff Union of Universities, Ekpoma chapter, issued a 30-day notice of legal action to the university’s relevant authorities over the recently conducted biometrics verification for staff members.

The union claimed that the biometrics verification was inconclusive, riddled with inconsistencies, and tainted.

The union said the dehumanising conditions its members and other staff members were subjected to during the biometrics verification were unimaginable in a press statement signed by the union’s chairperson and assistant secretary, Dr. Cyril Onogbosele; and Dr. William Odion, respectively, and made available to journalists in Benin.

The speech reveals, “Members of the union were embarrassed, harassed, humiliated, intimidated and coerced by the biometrics verification team to make presentations for the exercise against published criteria and requirements by the university administration.

“All complaints by the union to the relevant authorities, including the visitor to the University and Governor of Edo State, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, over the anomaly and inclusive nature of the controversial biometrics verification were ignored, hence the 30-day legal pre-action notice.”

The union body also demanded that Obaseki stop wasting and mismanaging the university’s limited resources on meetings and sitting allowances for members of the Special Intervention Team.
