BOWEN sacks over 100 workers


Bowen University, Iwo, Osun State has sacked over 100 staff members of the institution following the harsh economic realities foisted by the ravaging COVI-19.

The sacked staff members received their letters of disengagement through email late on Tuesday.

The development, according to report, is currently generating anxiety in the institution with hush discussion among staff centered on protesting the action.

“How can the university-owned by a church just wake up and lay off such number of staff at this time? Even the government at all levels are struggling to keep their staff and pay them. The situation as it is may lead to violence as some affected staffers are insisting on protesting against the decision of the university”, the source added.

Responding to the incident, the Public Relation Officer of Bowen University, Mr Toba Adaramola confirmed it saying the dismissed staff were unproductive and did not measure up.
