The Chairman Governing Council of Ibarapa Polytechnic, Eruwa Dr Samuel Ogundiran has directed all principal officers of the Institution to proceed on annual accumulated leave with immediate effect.

This was contained in letters written and signed by the Chairman to all officers affected.

According to the Chairman of the Governing Council, the decision followed recent protest over non-accreditation and mobilisation for NYSC protest by some students two years after graduating and other pending issues.

He has also stopped Banks from transacting business with the affected officers on behalf of the Institution.

Investigation by our man Tade Oludayo however showed that the decision was reached unilaterally without holding any meeting.

In a telephone chat some members of the 13-man Council have dissociated themselves from the directives.

They maintained there was no meeting held or any consultations where such decisions were agreed to be taken.
