Atiku Abubakar sacks 400 workers in his University and he explains the reason behind it.
Atiku owned University, American University of Nigeria, in Yola sacked 400 workers on the grounds of restructuring and other things said in the statement below.
This was coming four days after he sacked 46 members in GOTEL media. Could this be restricturing for real?
Professor Tahir Abbar, the Vice President of AUN, University Relations, makes this known in a statement made available to reporters in Yola on Tuesday.
The Prof. said that most of the affected personnel were those that had no important contribution on the philosophy of the university for real.
According to PM News, Prof. Tahir said: “Certain structural elements have been initiated by the new Governing Council of American University of Nigeria (AUN), in response to NUC requirements, mandating the institution to align with an approved governance structure for all tertiary institutions in the country.
”Until now, AUN has operated a student-staff ratio which balance had continued to affect the sustainability of the university.
”This is clearly an uncommon and hardly workable tradition in all institutions and organisations around the world. Obviously it is unattainable.”
”Thus, consequent upon the university’s new governing council vote to restructure the institution in line with its agenda for sustainability, a process of workforce rationalisation has been in the pipeline.
”It is now time for the university to look back, look around and look ahead, to ensure that realistic and globally competitive administrative practices can be achieved in structure, strategy and focus.”
Do you think it is really for restructuring or because of his donations for COVID-19, perhaps he is unable to pay workers. Hence these claims?
