Aggrieved lecturers of the Ogun State College of Health Technology (OSCOHTECH), in Ilese-Ijebu, have demanded urgent measures to restore full accreditation for all the institution’s programmes.
The lecturers warned that graduating students of the college may soon be delisted from the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) orientation exercise, if the deplorable situation of the school was not addressed by Governor Dapo Abiodun and the Ogun State House of Assembly.
Speaking with reporters in Abeokuta against the backdrop of the crisis rocking the institution, the suspended Chairman of Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) in the college, Abiodun Abiodun, said all the courses being run in the school, both at the National Diploma (ND) and Higher National Diploma (HND) levels, lacked required accreditation.
He blamed the Provost, Dr. Abiodun Oladunjoye, for the development, saying his administration failed to take desired steps despite several correspondence by the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE).
Abiodun, who was accompanied by two former ASUP chairmen, Adeoye Kuku and Abiola Ojure, lamented the rot in the state-owned college, including alleged questionable financial transactions, illegal award of access road contract and purchase of automobiles.
Although the institution’s Public Relations Officer (PRO), Ayodele Alaga, recently debunked the allegation against the Provost and his Management team, the aggrieved lecturers said they were concerned about the fate of staff and students of the school. (New Telegraph)
