Ondo Poly Staff School: Govt Absolves Self, Directs Re-absorption Of Affected Workers

The entrance gate to Ondo State Polytechnic now Rufus Giwa Polytechnic

The governor of Ondo State, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Odunayo Akeredolu, SAN, has directed the Governing Board of Rufus Giwa Polytechnic, Owo, to commence the immediate enumeration of workers likely to be affected by the planned commercialisation of the institution’s Staff School.

Mr. Governor’s directive which comes on the heels of the fears and concern expressed by persons who may possibly be affected by the decision of the Governing Board, however, targets those who were originally workers of the institution seconded to the Staff School.

Donald Ojogo, Commissioner for Information and Orientation in a statement obtained by The Precision NG on Wednesday said, “for the avoidance of doubt, the Polytechnic’s Staff School is neither owned nor run by the State Government. It is a wholly private business venture by the institution.

“The salaries and other benefits of workers of the Staff School have never been the burden of the State Government since the establishment of the Staff School.

“In other words, assets and liabilities of the Staff School as well as benefits or otherwise thereon, start and end with the Governing Board which is autonomous. It is not one of the State’s public schools, for emphasis.

“This clarification is necessary to put the records straight, especially as the attention of the Government of Ondo State has been drawn to a network of warped media stunts that the State Government has privatised the school. The State Government has nothing to do with the issue,” the statement read.
