Why we sacked 45 staff – FUTA

Invest In Mutual Funds Like A Hero

The management of the Federal University of Technology, Akure, has defended the sack of 45 workers of the institution.

FUTA said the action was in line with Federal Government’s policy on university education.

The university in a statement issued by its Public Relations Officer, Adegbenro Adebanjo, maintained that the decision to sack the workers followed a recent circular from the Federal Ministry of Education, directing universities to disengage workers in staff schools.

Members of both the academic and non academic staff of the university had last week embarked on peaceful demonstration to protest the sack of FUTA staff school workers.

Adegbenro maintained that FUTA was not the only university that took the decision, saying all universities in the country were directed to take the action.

“This is because the Federal Government is no longer ready to take responsibility for the funding of salaries of staff of primary schools affiliated to its Institutions or other agencies,” he stated.

He noted that the workers’ sack was to ensure sustenance of FUTA staff primary school under the new dispensation.
