Ogundoyin Poly Staff, Student Write Makinde, Throw Weight Behind Reappointed Board Chair


Staff members and Students of Adeseun Ogundoyin Polytechnic have written Governor Seyi Makinde, the Speaker of the House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Adebo Ogundoyin and other stakeholders in the state to declare their support for the re-appointment of Dr. Samuel Ogundiran as the Chairman of the Governing Board of the institution.

In the letter dated 16th July, 2020, the Joint Action Committee, JAC of the three unions (ASUP, SSANIP and NASU) of the institution described the news making rounds in the media that the Staff and Students of the institution had kicked against and rejected the appointment as not only untrue but also misleading.

They noted that the news was a deliberate attempt by mischievous people to mislead Governor Seyi Makinde; the good people of Oyo State and the entire Publics of the institution.

The letter reads:”Your honour sir, we have noticed some publications in the online and print media in the past few days purported to be the position of members of staff and students body of the Adeseun Ogundoyin Polytechnic, Eruwa on the appointment of Dr. Ogundiran , Samuel OGUNWALE as the Council Chairman of our institution.

“In our capacity as the leader of the staff unions in our institution, we unequivocally state that such publication protesting the appointment of the Council Chairman are sheer misrepresentation of the position of all the staff members of the institution on the said appointment and we hereby refute the publications totally as they did not emanate from us nor represent our collective position on the appointment of Dr. Ogundiran as the Council Chairman for our institution.

“The claimed arrest of Dr. Ogundiran by the EFCC is nothing but a mere defamation of character targeted as the person of the Council Chairman, and such is just a distraction to the work he is appointed to do in the institution. As a matter of fact, the Council Chairman was invited by the EFCC and was released thereafter on personal recognition, having discovered that he had no case to answer. Since then ( May 28, 2019) there had not been any indictment nor follow up from EFCC on the said matter

“From the foregoing, we State in clear terms that all staff members are in support of the appointment of of Dr. Ogundiran and the host communities are also fully behind this decision of the State Government. We challenge the ” enemies of progress” behind the publication of the falsehood to identify themselves publicly if truly they are proud of their evil merchandise.

“Finally, we use this medium to appreciate His Excellency, Engr. Seyi Makinde on the renaming of our institution from The Ibarapa Polytechnic, Eruwa to Adeseun Ogundoyin Polytechnic, Eruwa. This is strategic and symbolic to us, for it is the beginning of the new things to follow and come to stay in the institution.”
