Daramola described  as a “big problem in our universities”.

“In fact, they are a clog in the wheel of progress”, he told newsmen.

The former Vice Chancellor of the Federal University of Technology Akure (FUTA) said its member  lock the gates of universities whenever they are aggrieved.

“They contribute the least but want the most in the university system. “I think the way out is to outsource their functions and also to make sure that they are not federated. Let each governing council in the universities deal with each union.

“They unleash the EFCC on Vice Chancellors for no just cause. Media trial then follows”.

The former VC lamented that for five years that he was in the saddle at FUTA, “no single special intervention fund was released to us in the institution while some universities had every year because of NASU”.

Daramola called on security agencies to probe and arrest the problem which, he said, hampers development in universities in the country.
