FUOYE Workers on Friday protested over the sacking of the registrar of the institution, alleging that the action is the handiwork of the Vice-Chancellor, Prof Abayomi Fasina, which must be nullified.
The workers, under the aegis of Concerned New Staff, who alleged that Fasina fired Olatunbosun Odusanya as a Bendetta, called on the President Buhari, national Assembly, Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu and all suitable individuals and bodies to reinstate the registrar.
Out of the inscriptions on the placards are “The registrar must return,” “This injustice must stop: Enough is enough,” “The new sheriff must go or bow to regulations,” “Fashina must go or bow to regulation” and “Why will the registrar be fired because he employed unemployed citizens?”
A representative for the protesting workers, who identified himself as Adebayo, said, “The unceremonial sack of the registrar to settle personal scores must not be permitted to stay so that many more workers will not be fired that way.
“The bursar is on the rim of being fired as well. What have these principal officers (registrar and bursar) done to the VC to guarantee the sack? We are worried as anybody can be next. The appropriate authorities must come in, contemplate the matter and reinstate the registrar
The VC cannot sack registrar like that for an offence he did not commit. The registrar said due process was observed in the employment of workers, yet he was fired. We will not condone that in this university. The VC must go or accept by laid down rules and regulations
