Ekiti University Governing Council Approves Reinstatement of Staff
The Governing Council of Ekiti State University Ado Ekiti has approved the reinstatement of 363 out of 1173 members of staff, who were recently disengaged by the University.
EKSU’s Head of Directorate of Information and Current Affairs, Mr Bode Olofinmuagun said the decision to reinstate some of the affected staff was taken at a special meeting held in Ado Ekiti, following successful appeals lodged by those concerned to the University Governing Council.
According to Mr. Olofinmuagun, the Staff Audit recently carried out showed that many of the disengaged staff were over aged, some were with fake certificates.
He added that some of the staff falsified their ages, some were illegally recruited and many were ghost workers, who never showed up for the exercise.
The Vice-Chancellor, Professor Edward Olanipekun had earlier said that the exercise was not to witch hunt any member of staff but it was carried out to reposition the University for a better service delivery.
