FUNAAB Recalls 23 Sacked Lecturers

By Modupe Gbadeyanka

The 23 lecturers dismissed by the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB), have been recalled by the school’s governing council.

Not too long ago, the university’s governing council sacked 23 members of staff on allegations bordering on stealing, absconding from duty and wilful disrespect to constituted authority.

The development resulted into a protest which led to closure of the institution.

But the school’s authorities rescinded its decision at the end of the 91st meeting of the council held at the National Universities Commission (NUC) in Abuja.

A statement issued on Friday by the Head of the Directorate of Public Relations of FUNAAB, Emi Alawode, disclosed the decision to recall the sacked workers was taken following series of appeals from within and outside the university community.

In the statement signed by its Acting Registrar and Secretary, Mr Obafemi Oginni, the council directed each of the 23 lecturers to send a letter of appeal to the Secretary, Council Committee on Investigation of the Lingering Industrial Unrest and Tension, Acting Registrar’s Office between Friday, December 16 and Monday, December 19, 2016.
