The academic board of the Federal Polytechnic Ede, in Osun State, has allegedly suspended the Rector of the Institution, John Adekolawole for what it termed “sleeping at work.”
Adekunle Masopa, who is the Chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) in the institution, said that the decision of the board was based on 21 grounds’.
He made this known while speaking after an emergency congress of the union.
Masopa disclosed that a position paper submitted to the union by the board after its meeting accused the rector of desecrating the respected office of the rector with the creation of a bedroom furnished with a king-size bed which has made it possible for him to be “sleeping at work“.
“We tried to intervene, but members of the academic board said they had taken a decision and that their decision would stand.
“They, however, said a position paper would be communicated to us. The said position paper has been communicated to us.
“The following are some of the reasons adduced for the action: one, flagrant dereliction of duty by absconding from office for about a month. Two, the desecration of the highly respected office of the rector with the creation of a bedroom furnished with a king-size bed which has made it possible for him to be sleeping at work.
