Osun sacks 82 College of Education staff


EIGHTY-two workers of Osun State College of Edu­cation, Ila-Orangun, were yesterday sacked by the management of the state-owned institution.

The development, Daily Sun gathered, was in line with government’s policy to restructure tertiary insti­tutions in the state.

It was also gathered that the affected workers were members of the non-Aca­demic Staff Union (NASU) of the college.

Chairman of the Aca­demic Staff Union of the college, Segun Onifade, confirmed the development to newsmen in Osogbo yes­terday. According to him, the sacked workers were contract staff.

Onifade also disclosed that some of the sacked workers had spent six years before the authorities de­cided to relieve them of their jobs.

Chairman of the col­lege’s Governing Council, Niyi Akande, when con­tacted on phone, however, said he was not aware of the sack.

He said: “I am not aware of that. I have not been told that anybody has been sacked. I am in Abuja.”
