It is no more news that the prestigious polytechnic in Abeokuta, Moshood Abiola Polytechnic has been converted into a university of science and technology under the effective administration of his Excellency, Governor Ibikunle Amosun CON, FCA.
The transition committee which is being chaired by Professor Peter Okebukola, has ordered the sack of over 250 workers in the institution and call for a fresh application for those that are eligible to work in the newly established University.
This corroborates the fact that all workers are being automatically sacked by the committee and which they tend to reapply as fresh applicants into the institution.
Aftermath of the board meeting yesterday, which encompassed the transition committee and all recognised bodies in the institution, it was unanimously agreed that such inhuman decision would not be taken by all staffers of the polytechnic.
All bodies, NASU and ASUP including the students of the school, made a huge convergence at the school entrance this morning, 12th July, 2017 to show a prompt unacceptance to the dismissal of all workers and to restrict all activities on campus. Students have lamented for a quick resolution so as not to jeopardize their academic Career and hold the academic activities into ransom.
We however use this medium to urge the responsive and responsible Ogun state government ably led by his Excellency, Senator Ibikunle Amosun CON, FCA to implement a swift antidote to the situation and allow peace to reign in the institution and state as large.
In result of that, we all know that “a stitch in time saves nine”, this is the only solution we need before situation goes out of hands. More information to come.
