The protest which involved over fifty lecturers under the aegis of “Concerned Academic Staff” of OGSCOHTECH, carrying placards bearing different inscription, such as, “No case of embezzlement shown by the annual audit report “, “petitioners are detractors with intents to destroy the school”, “our salaries are constant”, “We run an uninterrupted academic calendar”, and many more.
He alleged that Mr. Akinyele Cyril Babasope, Mr. Ojure Mujitaba, Mr. Anisere Dele Ismail, Mr. Kuku Mukail Adeoye, Mr. Abiodun Sunday Abiodun and Mr. Nwokolo Raymond were behind the allegation written to the State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, and the state House of Assembly, lobbying for the number one position of the college with their fake certificate.
He alleged that those people have been indicted by an Oloko’s administrative panel of inquiry set up to investigate allegation of certificate forgery, misappropriation of fund and raping of some female students of the institution among others.
He said it was imperative to revisit the the Oloko’s administrative panel of inquiry to unveil their misdeeds, so as to let them realise that they were qualified for the position they were aspiring for, noting that it would cause more harms if the government refuse to summon them and account for their misdeeds and anomalies while lecturing in the institution.
Also, the Director of Students Industrial Works Experience Scheme (SIWES), Mr. Salako Sikiru said that it was pathetic that those involved were not genuine staff of the college, adding that it was embarrassing and annoying to realise that those unscrupulous elements which add no value to the college could involved in such mischievous act.
He wondered how could the management get the some of Ten Million purportedly mentioned in their petition, noting that the college could not do anything without reporting to the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, which is the supervising Ministry.
He added that non of the courses being run by the institution without proper accreditation, stressing that the academic regulatory agencies has always carried our its periodical re accreditation of courses in the college and no record of owing workers’ salaries and other entitlements.
In the same vein, the Dean, School Of Environmental Health Science, Dr. Soyingbe Azeez said that the institution always follow due process in spending fund, saying that all the allegation was only targeted at the reappointment of the Provost of the College for second term which has nothing to do with anybody.
“Indeed, no staff of the college could allege the Provost of misappropriation of fund, because all money is always spending judiciously and with the directive of the supervising Ministry, how then could the Provost withdraw money without its supervising Agency.” Azeez said
He then appealed to the State government to rise up the plight of the college and revisit the Oloko’s panel report of the institution with the view to sanitise the college, otherwise those bad elements would continue to tarnish the image of the institution.
He said that the step becomes imperative so as to redeem the image of the institution and reposition the college’s standard, particularly the future of the students whose future may be affected by the lies, falsehood and fabrication in their petition.
