The University of Ibadan, Oyo State, has directed its staff to work for three days a week to cushion the effect of petrol subsidy removal.
In a statement by the Registrar and Secretary to Council G.O. Saliu, the unprecedented increase in pump price has unleashed untold hardship on salary earners who have to commute to work every working day.
He said the University Management recommended a temporary work schedule adjustment for members of staff, which the Senate considered and approved, with effect from Monday, 14 August 2073.
however, he noted that those on essential duties are exempted from the adjustment and the management has plans to review the arrangement as the situation improves.
The registrar also appealed to heads of departments and deans to cooperate with the institution, while appealing to members of staff to keep open communication with their heads of departments.
