Human Right Lawyer calls on Nigeria to reject Aregbesola’s plan to sack 678 staffs of LAUTECH



A Human Right Lawyer, Kanmi Ajibola, has called on the people of Osun state and Nigeria in general to reject Governor Rauf Aregbesola’s plan to sack 678 workers of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, LAUTECH.

Ajibola described Aregbesola’s plan as evil, saying sacking of workers at this time will increase poverty rate.

The human right lawyer had approached the court, seeking an order preventing the governor from sacking 678 workers of LAUTECH.

When the case came up on Monday, counsels to respondents, Biodun Badiora, said he has filed response to the motion ex-parte of the applicant.

But, Ajibola opposed the Memorandum of Appearance and all the processes by the defendants, saying he was served shortly before the sitting of the court.

Ajibola said, “the matter was slated for the hearing of interlocutory application seeking a preventing the government from sacking 678 LAUTECH workers.

He urged the court to reply orally to the respondent’s process, but the Chief Judge, Justice Adepele Ojo, advised the counsel to make it formal.

Ajibola contended that it was wrong for a state government to sit in his office, attempting to sack 678 people, asking where is he sacking them to, where does he want them to go?‎

“This is improper and we are calling on all Nigerians to stand by us. This battle is not for me alone but it is the battle of every human being.

Meanwhile, the case has been adjourned to May 31, 2016 for hearing of all pending application.
