The management of the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB) is set to re-absorb the recently sacked members of staff of the University.

A press release by the institution’s Head, Directorate of Public Relations, Mrs. Emi Alawode in Abeokuta yesterday indicated that the decision was contained in a communiqué issued at the end of the 91st meeting of the institution’s Governing Council in Abuja. 

The communiqué, signed by the Acting Registrar and Secretary to Council, Mr. Obafemi Oginni disclosed that the, “decision followed series of appeals from within and outside the University community to pardon and re-absorb the sacked members of staff.”

The university had, in November sacked the 23 staff who are also members of the institution’s Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Universities (SSANU) “due to re-organisation in the University” 

But the Council in the communiqué directed that the affected staff, should, each of them within 48 hours, “forward a Letter of Appeal to the Secretary, Council Committee on Investigation of the Lingering Industrial Unrest and Tension, Acting Registrar’s Office, between Friday, December 16 and Monday, December 19, 2016.”

“The Council also directed all other staff on industrial action to resume at their duty posts immediately “and ensure that they do not engage in any conduct that could constitute any breach of peace and good governance in the university; while it enjoins all parties to withdraw all civil cases in the courts to allow the Council Committee to function properly”.

“The Council acknowledged that normal academic and administrative activities are on-going in the University and urges staff to continue to positively contribute towards restoring peace and normalcy in the University, while affirming that Professor Olusola Oyewole, remains the Vice-Chancellor of the University.”
