No fewer than two hundred and fifty-five (255) workers of Ladoka Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) Teaching Hospital have been sacked by the management of the institution.
An internal memorandum signed by one A.M Ajiferuke, dated 27th December, 2017, a copy obtained by Newsclickng on Thursday morning, confirmed the disengagement of workers of the teaching hospital jointly owned by Oyo and Osun States.
The list also revealed that 299 other workers of the hospital are to be redeployed to the state service, bringing the total of affected workers to 554.
The internal memo reads, “Kindly find below the list of disengaged staff as directed by the Oyo State Government and approved by the board at her meeting held on Thursday, 21st December, 2017.”
The axes may also dangle on workers of LAUTECH as the owner-states begin the process of ‘weeding’.
An internal source who begged not to be named said: “The headcount was unable to commence yesterday due to flight delay. The team couldn’t fly from Lagos to Ibadan due to unfavourable weather condition”.
