Lawyer Battles Aregbesola Over Plans To Sack 678 LAUTECH Staff

Kanmi Ajibola, a legal practitioner has dragged the Osun State governor, Rauf Aregbeso­la, before the state High Court over alleged plan to sack about 678 staff of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) Teaching Hospital, Os­ogbo.

Ajibola in a suit number HOS/46/2016, is seeking an order of interlocutory injunction restraining the first defendant (Osun State Government), the second defendant (Rauf Aregbesola) and the third defen­dant (LAUTECH man­agement board) either by themselves, their agents, servants and privies from sacking or suspending any staff of the institution.

In the affidavit deposed to by the plaintiff, he ar­gued: “The governor of Osun State has acted in abuse of his office arbi­trarily and prejudicially to the right of the Oyo State Government of which it has direct consequence on staff of LAUTECH.

“The approval of the sacking of the staff had been sent to Ladoke Akin­tola University of Technol­ogy Hospital management board for implementation upon which the same board has started working.”

“I believe that with­out the intervention of the court, the defendants are likely to start rapid and ac­celerated implementation of the recommendation in the forensic audit by Messrs Isaac Olumuyiwa Makinde published in the Osun State of Nigeria Gazette No. 1 Vol. 26 dated 14th day of January, 2016,” it added.
