Heads have begun to roll at the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomosho, over the report of an Audit Firm, KPMG, as the Governing Council of the University on Tuesday sacked the Vice Chancellor, Professor Adeniyi Gbadegesin and other Principal Officers of the university.
Other affected principal officers are, Mr. J. A. Agboola, Registrar ; Prince A.B.C. Olagunju, Bursar and Mr. I.O. Ajala, Librarian.
The University Management staff were asked to proceed on immediate leave following their indictment in the report.
The KPMG was commissioned by the government of the two owner states, Osun and Oyo to carry out the audit of the finances of the university following the incessant crises rocking the institution.
It was gathered that the University Management staff were asked to proceed on immediate leave because they were indicted by the KPMG Reports and for their failure to curb the incessant strike by the labour unions in the University
The Vice Chancellor, Prof. Gbadegesin was appointed by the Oyo and Osun Governors in 2011 after the then controversial Vice Chancellor, Prof Olarenwaju Nassar was sacked.
However, Prof Isaac Adeyemi, the most senior Professor of the University and a former Vice Chancellor of the Bells University of Technology has been appointed as the Acting Vice Chancellor, while Ven Olusegun Ojo, the most senior Deputy Registrar and a former Registrar of Adeleke University Ede has been appointed as Acting Registrar.
Mrs Oyewunmi will act as the Librarian while Mr Agbolade will act as the Bursar.
