The Governing Council of the multi-campus Osun State

University (UNIOSUN) has sacked three principal officers.

The council recommended for approval of the Visitor,

Governor Rauf Aregbesola, the termination of the

appointment of the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Bashir Okesina.

The council, on Tuesday, gave letters of termination of

appointment to the Registrar and the Bursar, Dr. Julius

Faniran and Alhaji Fatai Lasisi.

The termination of their appointments followed the

recommendations of the Visitation Panel set up by the

governor.

The panel probed the allegations of financial

misappropriation and mismanagement in the university.

But the university’s chapter of the Academic Staff Union of

Universities (ASUU) has rejected the decision.

In a statement by its Chairman, Dr. Abiona Oluseye and

eight other officers, the union said the action was done in

bad faith.

The union also said the sack was prejudicial and violates

the principle of equity and fairness.

It said: “It is instructive to state that a visitation panel was

constituted by the governor and the report submitted.
