The Ambrose Alli University (AAU) in Ekpoma’s employee disengagement letters have become the subject of an investigation by Edo Governor Godwin Obaseki.
The letters were denied in a statement released on Tuesday by Crusoe Osagie, his special adviser on media.
The Edo administration declared that anyone found to have issued them would face swift repercussions.
Obaseki deemed the letters to be unlawful, void, and ineffective while emphasizing his administration’s dedication to the welfare of workers.
The governor vowed to protect the interests of university employees and maintain the state’s reputation as a desirable place to live and work.
Due to various management decisions, the institution has been in the headlines recently.
Once the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) members resumed their operations in October, the AAU branch and management engaged in conflict.
It came after Interim Vice Chancellor Prof. Sonnie Adagbonyin was accused of arbitrarily removing the actual Deans of the colleges of agriculture and social sciences.
