The Governing Council of the Federal College of Agriculture, Akure, FECA, Ondo State, has explained why he fired Dr. Emmanuel Moyinjesu, Rector of the Federal College of Agriculture.
A member of the school’s Governing Council, Dr. Benson Enikuomehin, revealed that Moyinjesu was replaced by some alleged violations of the institution’s work rules. He said that after his removal, Dr. Akinyemi Fadiyimu had been appointed as the new interim Rector of FECA.
The Nigeria newspaper had reported how the institution’s professors under the body of the Polytechnic Staff Union, ASUP closed academic activities at the tertiary institution during development.
According to the professors, Fadiyimu was not qualified for the position, emphasizing that he is not the highest-ranking officer in the university compared to Moyinjesu’s administrative skills.
Speaking through the President of the Governing Council, Chief Bayo Oyero, Enikuomehin said that the decision to remove Moyinjesu came after a series of advice, precautions, and warning that he did not follow or follow.
Enikuomehin added that the infractions, which had previously been reported to the Nigerian Agricultural Research Council, ARCN, had become embarrassing and could sink the board and the system if urgent measures were not taken.
He noted that after the notification of ARCN, which is the institution’s oversight body, Moyinjesu was unable to provide a satisfactory explanation.
However, he said that the ARCN ordered Moyinjesu to withdraw while awaiting the conclusion of the investigation by a panel and said: “This required the appointment of Fadiyimu as the interim rector.”
“Teachers have the right to protest and demonstrate their complaints, but must be channeled through the fitting rooms. But the appointment of Fadiyimu should be seen as a round pin in the right hole. “
