ASUU blames “Japan”, IPPIS says shortage of instructors hits universities directly


Despite the high number of retirees, Nigerian universities are facing a severe staffing crisis as hundreds of teachers retire to seek greener pastures abroad.

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) branch corroborated this in a separate interview with the press on Sunday, saying the shortage was due to the rapid increase in lecturers leaving Nigeria and concerns over the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System.

The ASUU of the Usmanu Danfodiyo University in Sokoto has announced that about 100 teachers have retired, while the union at the Gusau Federal University in Zamfara has announced the recruitment of about 1,000 teachers to fill the vacancies of the retired teachers. He said he needed a scholar.

The union at the Federal University of Agriculture in Abeokuta, Ogun State has said there are over 350 academic vacancies at the university, 27 lecturers from two faculties at the University of Lagos have resigned and 100 staff from the University of Uyo have left the country. He announced that he had escaped.

According to the union, the University of Ilorin in Kwara State has a university capacity of over 500 people and both faculty and non-academic staff of the Olusegun Agag University of Science and Technology have fled the country.

Dr. Rotimi Olorunsola, chairman of the trade union at the Olusegun Agag University of Science and Technology in Okitipupa, Ondo State, said many staff members of the university, including academics and non-academics, had resigned.
