BREAKING: LAUTECH Teaching Hospital sacks 255 staffs, redeploys 299 to state service
The management of Ladoka Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) Teaching Hospital has reportedly sacked about 255 workers, while 299 other workers of the hospital have been redeployed to the state service, bringing the total of affected workers to 554.
An internal memorandum signed by one A.M Ajiferuke, dated 27th December, 2017, made available to DAILY POST confirmed the report.
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.”
It was also gathered that axes may also dangle on workers of LAUTECH as the owner-states (Oyo & Osun) begin the process of ‘weeding’. According to DAILY POST, an internal source who pleads anonymity made this known, he said: “The headcount was unable to commence yesterday due to flight delay. The team couldn’t fly from Lagos to Ibadan due to unfavorable weather condition.”
It was further gathered that various unions are spoil for war against the owner-states.
