Osun poly lecturers protests. On Tuesday, protesters from the Academic Union of Polytechnic, Osun State Polytechnic, Iree, demanded that the suspension of the Rector, Dr. Tajudeen Odetayo, be lifted at the institution’s entrance.

A letter from Mr. A. Jimoh, the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Education, announced Odetayo’s suspension. He was named Rector in March of this year.

The letter suspending Odetayo dated July 11, 2023, a copy of which was obtained in Osogbo on Monday, partly read, “You are hereby suspended as the Rector of Osun State Polytechnic, sequel to the strong allegations of financial recklessness, corruption, misappropriation of funds, abuse of office among others.

“You are to proceed on suspension immediately, while investigation into the allegations levelled against you commences soon.”

Odetayo was named the sixth substantive Rector of the polytechnic by the state’s most recent governor, Adegboyega Oyetola. Odetayo’s appointment was, however, revoked by Governor Ademola Adeleke shortly after he assumed office following the July 16, 2022, governorship election, along with others made by his predecessor.

However, on March 10, 2023, the administration that had previously halted his appointment did so again, this time for a four-year term, via a letter from the state’s head of service, Leye Aina.

Mr. Kehinde Alabi has been named the institution’s acting rector, as stated by the government right away.
