Adedayo Akinwale in Abuja
The Civil Liberties Organisation (CLO) has called on the federal government to make public the findings of the committee set up to investigate the alleged financial and administrative impropriety of the Rector of Yaba College of Technology (YABATECH), Dr. Margaret Ladipo.
The rights group made the call in a statement signed by its President, Igho Akeregha, which stated that it was already public knowledge that the report of the committee has since been submitted to the government for necessary action.
“The CLO was informed that the panel had submitted its recommendations and it is on the table of the minister of education for necessary action. Having waited for months without words from government, the CLO is by this letter appealing to you to please do the needful so the staff (whistle blowers) who exposed the massive corruption within the system are not abandoned to suffer for upholding integrity as they have been victimised and dismissed by the embattled rector.
“We also have on good authority that as the delay lingers, records of the crime are being obliterated and more acts of financial haemorrhage and brigandage are also being perpetrated while both the whistle blowers and the nation suffer incalculable damage.”
The group had earlier in a letter dated March 9, 2016, which was signed by Akeregha and addressed to the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, to as a matter of urgency, take every necessary action on the panel’s findings without further delay. Gregory UniversityGregory University
