Tue Nov 19th, 2019 - Ekiti

There is palpable tension in Ekiti State University (EKSU), Ado-Ekiti, over alleged plan by the management of the institution to sack about 500 members of staff.

The affected workers, according to a source, who spoke with The Guardian on condition of anonymity, said that those that would be mostly affected by the planned retrenchment were those employed by the immediate past Vice Chancellor, Prof Samuel Oye Bandele, during his tenure.

It was also learnt that some professors, who were promoted during the same period, might be demoted to lower cadre over allegation that academic due process was not strictly adhered to in their elevations.
