The Acting Vice Chancellor of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun State, Anthony Elujoba, has been summoned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), over discrepancies in the payment of allowances without approval.
In a letter signed by Oseni Kazeem of the Southwest Zonal Office of the EFCC, in Ibadan, Oyo State, the commission advised the VC and the school’s bursar, Aderonke Akeredolu, to come along with necessary documents for verification.
“The office is currently investigating a case in which there is the need to obtain clarification from you. In view of the foregoing, you and your bursar are requested to report to our office for an interview.
“You are also to come along with the following documents: the salary payment schedule/any other payment made to senior staff and junior staff in August and September, 2016; payment vouchers relating to furniture allowances paid to the VC from the day he assumed office to date; certified true copies of the monthly salary pay slips of the VC from the day he assumed office to date,” the letter reads in part.
According to a report by Premium Times, the Acting VC was accused in a petition to the anti-graft agency by an unknown staff of the institution of paying allowances without approval.
Meanwhile, the school’s Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities and the Non-Academic staff Union of Universities were planning on protesting the EFCC’s invite of the VC to show their displeasure.
