A Nigerian rector by name John Adekolawole of the Federal Polytechnic Ede in Osun State, Nigeria has been suspended following a discovery of a king-size bed installation in his office.
Speaking at an emergency congress of the union, days after the discovery was made, Adekunle Masopa, Chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) in Nigeria said the board based its decision on 21 grounds.
Mr Adekunle Masopa said, “The following are some of the reasons adduced for the action: one, flagrant dereliction of duty by absconding from office for about a month.
Two, the desecration of the highly respected office of the rector with the creation of a bedroom furnished with a king-size bed which has made it possible for him to be sleeping at work.”
“Improper improvisation of a dual award programme of National Diploma plus NCE (Nigeria Certificate in Education) programme in collaboration with a consultant.”
