Ajao’s speech was read by the Secretary of the union, Dr AbdulGaniyu Olatunji. The university lecturers had staged a solidarity rally within the university’s campus before returning to the auditorium, where they addressed newsmen on ‘Casualization of Intellectual Workers in Nigeria: Prelude to Our Response.
