The vice chancellor of Osun State University (UNIOSUN), has been sacked by the state government for alleged financial mismanagement.
The appointments of Professor Bashir Okesina, and two other principal officers of the state institution have henceforth been terminated by the governing body of UNIOSUN.
The sack of the top three principal officers, according to Vanguard, follows a visit by a panel set-up by Governor Rauf Aregbesola, to investigate alleged financial mismanagement by the officers
Reacting to the sack, the UNIOSUN chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Universities has faulted the decision of the institution’s governing body on the grounds that, it violated the principle of fairness.
The union maintained that, the institution was acting as a judge in their own case by arriving at a decision before the findings by the panel constituted by the governor were submitted.
