Mr. Ajiboye was returned for a second term of two years.
The Chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, at the University of Ibadan, Olusegun Ajiboye, was re-elected on Wednesday.
Mr. Ajiboye was returned for a second term of two years at the Biennial Congress of the union held at the Faculty of Arts in the school.
The ASUU boss was among the vociferous voices of the union, whose opinions reverberated during the recently suspended six-month strike to press for the full implementation of the 2009 agreement signed with the Federal Government.
Deji Omole and Peter Olapegba were also elected as secretary and internal auditor respectively, while Olisa Moujama emerged as public relations officer. The branch’s vice chairman is M.G Olujide.
Nasir Adesola, the Ibadan zonal coordinator of the union, who performed the traditional introduction of the elected officers, urged members to work with the new leadership with a view to actualising the goals of the union for education and its members.
While responding, Mr. Ajiboye thanked the congress for the confidence reposed in him and promised to continue to stand for and fight for the welfare of members and qualitative education delivery for the poor in Nigeria.
Mr. Ajiboye who promised not to disappoint the congress noted that it was a big challenge to head an intellectual union like ASUU.
He also said the union will continue to strictly monitor the implementation of the new MoU signed with federal government on the revitalization of universities.
