Just In: Obaseki Sack Over 90 AAU Staff For Protesting On the 9 Of March, 2023…. Edo Must Stop this Sleeping Governor Now

Management Of AAU Sacks Over 90 Staff For Protesting

More may join after the election

The Management of the Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma on March 9, 2023, disengaged over ninety (90) staff (mostly Senior Staff) under the disguise of repositioning the State-owned higher institution.

According to one of the victims (name withheld) _*”…it is true that I was given a letter of disengagement in the disguise of repositioning the University. The truth is, it is because of the last protest embarked on by ASUU, NASU and SSANU saying I was part of it. This is a true example of a Government under the leadership of a tyrant. The Government of Edo State under the leadership of Governor Godwin Obaseki who refused to pay us for months is coming now to sack us for protesting for our rights. If it is not for the protest, what is our offense?”* The victim asked.

In the sack letter titled, “Letter of Disengagement”, “In repositioning the University, the Management of Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma writes to convey to you the decision of the Special Intervention Team (S.I.T) of your disengagement from the service of the University with effect from March 10, 2023.”

You will recalled that the Eleven (11) man Edo State House of Assembly under the leadership of Rt. Hon. Marcus Onobun in 2021 approved Governor Godwin Obaseki’s request to set up Special Intervention Team and was resisted by the University’s branch of ASUU, NASU and SSANU saying, the S.I.T. is designed to be sacking the hardworking staff of the University. In one of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Benin Zone’s in 2022, it faulted Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, on the administration of the state-owned Ambrose Alli University (AAU) Ekpoma without Governing Council, describing the government’s idea as alien to university administration globally.
