No Plan To SACK Workers – Ekiti Varsity
Ekiti State University, Ado-Ekiti has dismissed rumours that it was planning to downsize its workforce.
Vice Chancellor Prof. Edward Olanipekun made the clarification yesterday at a news conference to herald the 27th convocation of the institution.
He said there was no intention to retrench workers despite the paucity of funds, adding that instead of retrenching, the management would strengthen the workforce for better service delivery.
The VC said the allegation was the handiwork of mischief makers and individuals bent on inciting workers against the management for their self-interest.
”There is no iota of truth in the rumour. It was masterminded by irresponsible fifth columnists, who find delight in causing unnecessary confusion in the university community.
“The same persons behind this rumour are the ones that submitted memoranda in 2018, alleging that the university was over staffed. I call on the public to disregard the speculation.”
Olanipekun promised to initiate positive ideas that would improve moral and academic excellence of the university through partnership with relevant institutions and individuals.
