Osun state suspended rector for fixing king size bed in his office

The academic board of the Federal Polytechnic, Ede, Osun state, has allegedly suspended John Adekolawole, the institution’s rector, for sleeping at work.

Speaking at an emergency congress of the union, Adekunle Masopa, chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) in the institution, said the board based its decision on 21 grounds.

He said a position paper was submitted to the union by the board after its meeting.

“We tried to intervene, but members of the academic board said they had taken a decision and that their decision would stand,” Masopa said.

“They, however, said a position paper would be communicated to us. The said position paper has been communicated to us.

“The following are some of the reasons adduced for the action: one, flagrant dereliction of duty by absconding from office for about a month. Two, the desecration of the highly respected office of the rector with the creation of a bedroom furnished with a king-size bed which has made it possible for him to be sleeping at work.
