The Academic Staff Union of Osun State Polytechnic Iree, has alleged the Osun government over not following the due process before suspending the Rector of Osun State Polytechnic Iree, Dr Tajudeen Odetayo.
It was gathered by our correspondent that the Rector of the Osun State Polytechnic Iree, Dr. Tajudeen Adetayo was suspended by the Osun government following allegations of financial recklessness, Misappropriation of fund, and corruption.
His suspension led to the appointment of an Ede born acting Rector, Mr. Kehinde Alabi who was said not to be qualify for the position.
The suspension of Odetayo led to a protest by the ASUP in that Institution hereby stopping the activities of the Institution until the Osun government reverse the suspension and follow due process
Reacting to the issue by the ASUP on Rave FM Osogbo on Wednesday, they said the Osun government did not follow the due process before suspending Odetayo stating that it is process they are fighting for not investigation.
The Union, who spoke through it’s Chairman, Dr Fatai Afolabi indicated that Alabi does not fit into that position in all ramification, the only thing that makes him fit in is that he hails from Ede.
According to Afolabi,”in Civil Service there is a laid down rules to address such ugly situation, if a petition is generated, then what you have to do is that the petition, you will attach it with a query and send it to the alleged person and the alleged person will have access to the petition and write his own story about the petition and when you are not satisfy that is when you will now take further action.
“This person has never been informed, he was not aware, he was never query, he has never face any panel and it was recorded that when this government came on board they met him as substancive Rector then the governor could not executive order and refer him back to acting Rector.
