NASU rejects appointment of Odusanya as DG NACETRM
The Non-Academic Staff Union (NASU) of the National Centre for Technology Management ((NACETEM), Ile Ife, Osun State, has kicked against the appointment of Olushola Odusanya, as the director general of the institute.
Odusanya’s appointment was part of the last-minute ones made and announced by President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday.
In a statement, yesterday, the branch Chairman, NASU NACETEM, Funminiyi B. Gbadamosi, said Odusanya’s appointment was done in uttermost disrespect to constituted authorities, the President, and the laws of this country.
It therefore warned that Odusanya will neither be recognised or welcome at NACETEM.
According to the body, Odusanya’s appointment, which it said was orchestrated by the Minister of State for Technology and Innovation, Henry Ikhor, was done in disregard to a Governing Board duly constituted by President Muhammadu Buhari and also in disrespectful disregard for the orders of a court of competent jurisdiction and the rule of law.
The body also stated that it dissociated its members entirely from what it described as illegality superintended by the minister, saying, “it will not recognise or receive any outcome of such illegal and illegitimate process.”
It warned that any attempt, particularly from the minister and any of his cohorts, to further provoke the union on the matter, would be met with the stiffest resistance possible under the ambits of the law.
