Michael Okpara University Vice Chancellor Sacks Over 400 Staffs
By Dominic Rowland
News reaching Spectascope.com says that the Vice-Chancellor of Michael Okpara University Umudike, Prof. Francis Otunta, has issued sack letters to over 400 staff’s in the university. The former Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Hillary Odoh Edeoga, employed this staffs.
It was said that the former VC, Prof. Edeoga thought after his tenure the new VC, Prof. Otunta will acknowledge the staffs, but that took a twist as those hopes has been flushed down the drain, after Prof. Otunta issued a communiqué dated June 28, 2017 for their immediate suspension/sack of the staffs, and asked them to hand over any document(s) or properties in their possession back to their respective unit heads.
Prof. Otunta during his acceptance speech after the inauguration vowed 'never to remove food from the mouth of any staff.’ It seems Prof. Otunta just contradicted himself, and proved to not be a man of his words.
