Read the Interview Section below:


Q. Please can you tell us your name and your position sir?


A. I am comrade Akindedayo Bamidele Peter, Non-Academic Staff Union (NASU) chairman OSUSTECH Branch.


Q. Can you tell us when you came into office?


A. I have spent more than three (3) years now not up to four years, and this is my second tenure as the NASU chairman in Ondo State University of Science and Technology, Okitipupa (OSUSTECH). I joined this struggle in February 27, 2016. And with God on our sides, every struggle will embark on is always successful.


Q. What are your goals as the NASU Chairman?


A. When we are talking about goals, I have many. What others cannot do, I know God will help me to achieve it. We are working on setting a mini shopping complex, union cooperative in which is the first of its kind, and also we have been able to make an effect in the welfare of Staffs. And I trust in God that before I leave office, the Shopping complex would be completed for people that will come after I must have gone. I am not after money because if I am after money, I would not think of embarking on that project. The Project has exhausted almost all the money in the union.


Q. And also sir, what are the challenges so far?


A. As a unionist you must pray for challenges so as to gain experience. In 2016, there was a struggle we embarked on, in which people never believed we could come back from it. It was a kind of struggle that lasted for two months, but we were able to fight and win. And also with the wisdom of God through me, we have been able to strategize the way of tackling several struggles.


Q. Are you given the same treatment given to ASUU?


A. You must know that the ASUU never believed that those that are not teaching exists in the university. Some of them, if not all calls them supporting staffs. And I also want to tell you that Without NASU, forget about anything called University.


Q. And Lastly, Do you have any word for the people out there?


A. I don’t pray to be a politician because my mind differs. I have a straight forward mind, not to deceive people. The only advice I can give to whosoever that also have the spirit of becoming a unionist or comrade is never to mix politics with union, because if you do so there will be problem. And the problem lies on the members, and at the end of the day, it could bounce back on them. In summary, everybody should have the mind of making things real and lively for themselves
