Why Ekiti varsity sacked workers, by VC
The Vice Chancellor of Ekiti State University, Prof. Samuel Oye Bandele, has said the institution dispensed with the services of some teachers in its part-time directorate due to academic fraud.
He explained that a number of lectures in that unit were in the habit of awarding undeserved grades to students, thus negating the tradition of the institution.
The newly appointed chief executive also disclosed that the university had sent packing certificate racketeers.
“I said no. This thing must stop. We disengaged their services, we decide to sanitise the system. We recalled the students who have deficiencies in one course or another to do a re-sit by paying certain amount of money depending on number of courses they have deficiency,” he clarified.
Bandele, who recently convoked an educational summit on how to improve internally generated revenue (IGR)
for the smooth running of the institution, said the motive was to build a 21st Century, first class university that would stand the test of time.
