Obaseki Recalls Dismissed AAU Lecturers, Insists Sack Letters Are Illegal, Null And Void


Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki has disclaimed all disengagement letters issued in the last couple of weeks to workers of Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma (AAU), insisting that they are illegal, null and void.

A terse statement Tuesday night in Benin by his Special Adviser on Media Projects, Mr. Crusoe Osagie reiterated that his administration’s commitment to workers’ welfare in the university remains sacrosanct and as such, he never sanctioned the action.

Lecturers at the state owned tertiary institution have been up in arms against authorities of the university over fear of mass sack due to their demands for the payment of all outstanding salary arrears and other entitlements.

Governor Obaseki who ordered an immediate investigation of the issue, vowed that action would be taken swiftly against anyone culpable.

The statement added: “The state government assures that it upholds the interest of the university workers and would continue to position the state as a suitable place to live and work.”
