John Adekolawole, the rector of the Federal Polytechnic in Ede, Osun state has been suspended by the institution’s academic board on grounds of “sleeping at work.”
Adekunle Masopa, chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) in the institution, said the board based its decision on 21 grounds.
Speaking after an emergency congress of the union, Masopa said a position paper was submitted to the union by the board after its meeting. They accused Adekolawole 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.
