According to the union Mr. Aina was not the most senior Coordinating Director.
It added that the Ag. Chairman was not even qualified to be appointed Coordinating Director in the first I stance.
It claimed that Mr. Aina did not have the minimum qualification for the appointment as a director because he did not possess a Bachelor’s degree or a Higher National Diploma.
He was brought in by former Executive Chairman, Mr. Babatunde Fowler as Special Assistant from where he was appointed Coordinating Director, in contravention of extant regulations.
