He was appointed on Wednesday just as the staff of the institution continue with the indefinite strike.
The appointment came as the state government gave a-24 hour deadline for members of ASUP to indicate interest whether to work at the new Polytechnic in Ipokia or not .
The state government had begun the process of tranformation of MAPOLY into Moshood Abiola University of Science and Technology and had ordered the staff to transist their status to the new Polytechnic in Ipokia.
The development had led to an indefinite strike by the workers of MAPOLY which had affected the second semester examination as it had been put on hold .
In the internal memorandum DATED November 29 and issued from the office of the Deputy Registrar of the institution and directed to all academic staff through Directors / HoDs/ Head of Units, with refrence number MAP/ADM/CON.70/VOL.XVI.231.
The letter which was obtained by PLATFORM TIMES read “Take off of Ogun state polytechnic, Ipokia.
“Following the receipt of a circular from the Ministry of Eduction Science and Technology, on the above subject matter, I am to inform you that His Excellency, the governor of Ogun state Senator Ibikun Amosun has directed that as many academic staff of MAPOLY who are desirous of transisting her staff to the Ogun state Polytechnic, Ipokia are urged to established such interest with immediate effect.
“A compilled list/ details of interested academic staff will be forwarded to the ministry latest by Thurday 30th Nov. 2017.
“You are therefore to indicate your interest at the office of the undersigned with immediate effect”.
PLATFORM TIMES reliably gathered that the union had unanimously agreed to shun the deadline while it embarks on the strike until the demands are met by the government .
The new deputy Rector might be officially announced by the government any moment as Ajayi has accepted to up the task.
