Professor Abdulrasheed Na’Allah, the Vice-chancellor of Kwara State University, has been sacked with immediate effect.
Via a statement by the Kwara government, Na’Allah has been asked to immediately step down for Professor Kenneth Adeyemi, who will be the acting Vice Chancellor as Mr Naalah proceeds on terminal leave.
Abdullahi Alikinla, the Kwara State Commissioner for Tertiary Education, Science and Technology, said Adeyemi should “take charge of responsibilities relating to the smooth running of the institution in accordance with the law establishing it.”
The state government did not provide any reason for the sudden removal of Mr Na’Allah, who is the pioneer head of the institution.
However, Nigerian Tribune while reporting the story quoted the chairman of the university’s governing council, Saka Nuru, as saying;
“This directive is not in tune with the University’s law and is going to lead to distraction from the Rain Semester examination and the process appointment of principal officers that are currently in progress,” the newspaper quoted Professor Nuru as saying.
“This action of the state government is illegal and the Governing Council of KWASU has no hand in the directive.” Mr Na’allah, 56, was appointed vice-chancellor at the inception of the university in the 2009-2010 academic session. Mr Adeyemi, 69, was a professor of operations research and business development at Covenant University.
