A human rights group, Centre for Human Rights and Social Justice (CHRSJ) has petitioned the authorities of the Osun State University (UNIOSUN), Osogbo, and the State Police Command over an alleged collection of double salaries from the University Account and National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) by a staff of the university, Mrs. Oyinlola Olabimpe Morenikeji (Nee Olatunji), calling for thorough and credible investigation into the allegation so as to unravel the true scenario of the matter.

The rights group also insisted that Morenikeji was at one time engaged in the double full time appointment and receiving another salary from the NYSC from March 2011 to March 2012 which was contrary to the rules and regulations guiding the citadel of learning in line with Part VI (27-29) of the Code of Conduct for Staff and Students of the university.

This was contained in a petition dated Tuesday 13th December, 2016.

The petition was forwarded to the Chairman, UNIOSUN Governing Council, Mallam Yusuf O. Alli, Vice-Chancellor of the University, Professor Labo Popoola, and other top management staff of the University as well as the State Commissioner of Police, stating that all the necessary related documents were attached to the Petition in order to prove the matter beyond reasonable doubt.

It urged the University management and concerned authorities to set up an independent and unbiased panel of inquiry to investigate all the issues raised in the petition, calling for the refund of all the salaries received by Morenikeji between March 2011 and March 2012 from the University purse to the University treasury in the interest of justice and public accountability.

The petition signed by CHRSJ Executive Chairman, Comrade Adeniyi Alimi Sulaiman read in part: “Another shocking revelation which is against the spirit of Civil Service General Order (G.O.), as a permanent staff of the University since 2nd of March 2010 and at the same time, Moronkeji was posted to Imo State in March 2011as participant in the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC). While lying to the University authority on her studentship as full time Secretarial Administration student of the Federal Polytechnic, Offa, Kwara State from 2009 to 2011.

“In addition, Mrs. Oyinlola Moronkeji (Nee Olatunji) was later redeployed to Osun State from Imo State on health ground as nobody could ascertain the kind of serious ailment that could lead to her redeployment. It is pertinent to inform your esteemed office that it is gross misconduct, irresponsibility and betrayal of public trust for public officer like Mrs. Oyinlola Moronkeji to hide her fraudulently acquired higher certificates from the University management and this is violation of due process in public service.”

The petition added that “In view of the above analysis, CHRSJ believes that all actions and inactions of Moronkeji had contravened section 98, 99 and 494 of the criminal code, Law of the Federation and section 209 of the amended of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
