The Vice-Chancellor, Ekiti State University, Professor Samuel Oye Bandele has said that the ad-hoc workers sent packing from the Directorate of Part-Time Programme of the Institution were not lecturers or teachers in any form and that no lecturers or teaching staff were sacked in the University.

The Vice-Chancellor said that the University would leave no stone unturned in order to sanitize the entire system.  Professor Bandele said that those weeded off from the Directorate of Part-Time Programme were ah-hoc staff recruited to serve as casual staff.

According to the Vice-Chancellor, these ah-hoc staff were in the habit of extorting money from students and awarding fake marks to students among other atrocities.

“Today, the Directorate of the Part-Time Programme is vibrant again because those giving the University bad name in the directorate have been weeded off” the EKSU helmsman stressed.

Professor Bandele further spoke on the Academic summit held in the institution recently and affirmed that the summit have started yielding results with the introduction of certificate and Diploma courses for deserving Nigerians.

According to him, the courses would enable all categories of people including artisans, clergymen, civil servants and others to avail themselves of University education leading to the award of Certificates and Diplomas in their various disciplines.
