On Friday, several employees of Osun State University (UNIOSUN) conducted a fake burial ritual as a farewell to the institution’s immediate past Vice-Chancellor, Prof Labode Popoola, whom they branded as a tyrannical administration.
Professor Popoola’s term as Vice-Chancellor expired on November 4, 2021, and the Governing Council named Professor Adefemi Afeez Bello as Acting Vice-Chancellor.
The employees swept the Vice-office Chancellor’s to the school gate as part of their celebration, then ate bean cake as a gesture of good-bye to Popoola amid dancing, singing, and bean cake frying.
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.
Adesoji recounted that Prof Laboode with his exceptional performances earned him life patron honour from Students Union, gifts from the alumni association and commendations from the staff of the institution.
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.”
