The Lagos State University, LASU, management has dismissed 17 academic and non-academic staff and demoted two others for allegedly falsifying their Senior Secondary School Certificates and manipulation of students’ results.

Other allegations levelled against the staff also included alleged inducement, default in the Training Leave Bond and abandonment of duty posts.

The school management also demanded that the staff refund the sum of N53 million earlier disbursed to them to embark on training within the country and abroad to its coffers.

LASU, in a statement made available to newsmen yesterday by the Acting Head, Centre for Information Press And Public Relations, CIPPRO, Mr. Ademola Adekoya, said that the dismissal followed due process.

According to the statement, Section 6(1) and (2) of the LASU Law 2004 (as amended), the Council of the institution is the governing authority of the University, and exercises general oversight over the Institution and its affairs.

“The Council at its 115th Meeting which held on Thursday, September 7, 2017, considered among others the report of its Joint Council /Senate (Academic) Disciplinary Committee and the Joint Council (Administrative and Technical Staff) Disciplinary Committee. Pursuant thereto the Governing Council with immediate effect dismissed fifteen (15) members of the Academic Staff, two (2) members of non-academic staff, and sanctioned others for different acts of misconduct.

“The Joint Council /Senate (Academic) Disciplinary Committee and the Joint Council (Administrative and Technical Staff) Disciplinary Committee, which heard the cases strictly followed all laid down procedures, and duly gave opportunity to the individuals involved to defend themselves. The Lagos State University is poised to continue to quality assure its processes,” it added.
