Governor Bello Replacing Sacked Lecturers With NCE Holders - ASUU

The Academic Staff Union of Universities has accused the Kogi state Governor, Yahaya Bello of replacing 150 sacked lecturers from the Kogi state University, Ayingba, with holders of National Certificate in Education, NCE

This allegation was made by the Zonal Coordinator of ASUU, Owerri zone, Prof Ike Odimegwu at a Press conference in Awka, Anambra state.

Odimegwu has lamented that the action was capable of destroying the Nigerian University Education and could ridicule her certificates in the global community. 

His words “ After the sack of over 150 seasoned lecturers, Mr Yahaya Bello resorted to the recruitment of unqualified individuals such as laboratory attendants, members of the National Youth Service Corps, NCE holders and even undergraduate students to replace them”.

“These actions of Mr. Yahaya Bello amount to gross violations of International Labour Law, the Constitution of Nigeria and all known best practices in the university system” Odimegwu said

“This arrogant display of power and abuse of office by Mr. Yahaya Bello speaks volume about the extent to which some political office holders could go to crush perceived opposition in their bid to emasculate and enslave Nigerians so as to fulfil their ambition towards destroying the public education system”.
