The immediate past chairman of the Governing Council of the College of Education, Ikere-Ekiti, Professor Babatope Alo, yesterday said his sack by Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose is an act of injustice.
Alo, who was last week removed as the chairman, Governing Council of the College of Education, Ikere Ekiti also revealed that he was yet to be officially communicated to about his sack from the institution.
Professor Alo, who described the announcement of his sack last week on the Broadcasting Service of Ekiti State (BSES) as an “act of injustice” disclosed that a member of the Governing Council, Gboyega Akinola, resigned in protest against the way and manner he was treated by the state government.
Speaking for the first time on his removal, the Professor of Applied Biology said he was happy leaving office with his name, image and integrity intact as he was not accused of any act of fraud, embezzlement and abuse of office.
Alo, who posited that he served the college diligently and moved the institution forward during his tenure, said his achievements included stability in college administration, increase in internally generated revenue, improvement in staff welfare, reviving of college farm, establishment of printing press, among others.
While noting that he had no premonition of his sack from office, he said Governor Ayo Fayose had accused him of fraternizing with his enemies saying he did not know the enemies the governor was referring to.
Alo said: “I had no premonition about my removal except for a time the governor called me accusing me of fraternizing with his enemies and I wonder who could that enemies be.
“He was just talking to me that I was fraternizing with his enemies and he was just giving me a threat and I see no reason for that.
“I took the removal in good faith but definitely, it was an act of injustice and very embarrassing. If not that people are very much aware of my reputation, they would have thought that I did something bad.
“Everybody that knows me that I am a very credible person and I couldn’t have been involved in any act of misdemeanor, that was my saving grace.”
