APC Governorship Candidate, Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu, SAN, has promised to reinstate lecturers of the Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko, AAUA, who were sacked recently by the management of the institution.
Akeredolu gave the assurance when his campaign train stormed Akungba Akoko area of the state. He equally promised to establish AAUA College of Medicine, if elected.
Some lecturers in the institution were sacked for protesting against the management of the institution over non-payment of their salaries and allowances for seven months.
However, Akeredolu said during his campaign in the town: “I want to assure you again that I remain committed to the development of Akungba land. The only way I can immortalize our father, Adefarati is to develop Akungba. By God’s grace, if you vote for me and I am returned elected, I will establish AAUA College of Medicine.
The lecturers sacked from our university for demanding for their legitimate rights shall be reinstated with all deserving benefits fully paid. The roads around Akungba metropolis shall be given a sanctimonious attention. I can assure you that you won’t have any cause to regret if you send me to Alagbaka.”
