Osun APC slams Gov. Adeleke over sack Ilesa varsity principal officers
By Victor Adeoti
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has described the sacking of the principal officers of the University of Ilesa by Governor Ademola Adeleke as reckless and an act of illegality.
The university was established by the immediate past governor of the state, Alhaji Adegboyega Oyetola, on March 31, 2022, when he upgraded the state’s College of Education, Ilesa, to a full-fledged university.
Oyetola backed the establishment of the university with a law made on Sept. 27, 2022; inaugurated the university governing council and principal officers on Nov. 2022.
Governor Adeleke had on Thursday sacked the sacking of the Vice-Chancellor of the University, Prof Kayode Ijaduola, the Registrar, Mr Oluwole Dada, and the Liberian, Dr Adedokun Ojelabi.
He also announced replaced for the sacked university executives.
Reacting to the development in a statement issued on Friday in Osogbo by Osun APC in a statement issued by the party’s Director of Media and Information, Chief Kola Olabisi, said it was a pity that the governor was politicising the appointments of principal officers of a citadel of learning.
The APC acting Chairman said he saw no reason why Adeleke should be struggling to rubbish the legacy of his predecessor simply because they share different political ideals.
According to him, the new University of Ilesa is a creation of the law which makes his removal of the tenured principal officers, duly approved by his predecessor, an illegality.
“The process of the appointment of the new principal officers of the Ilesa University is crude, illegal and stinks to high heavens as it would be an impossible Utopia for it to surmount legal fire power in any court of law.
