The acting rector of polytechnic in Ighabjo, Osun State, Akinola Olaolu has been sacked for fraudulently obtaining his PhD certificate to get the job
This was disclosed on Saturday by the Vice Chairman of the Board of Trustees Inaolaji Aboaba.
The Board of Trustees made the decision to relieve the rector of his position after it was confirmed from the University of Ibadan that he did not obtain any PhD certificate from the school where he alleged to have attended.
The embattled acting rector joined the Polytechnic as a deputy rector in December 2015.
Olaolu had claimed he obtained a PhD Certificate in Economics from the University of Ibadan until recently when he could not produce the original document as alleged.
The former rector Tanimowo Oke who had a Master’s degree at the time was unseated after the sacked AG rector’s arrival and his presentation of a PhD
In the recent development, Aboaba confirmed that the governing council sacked the rector after it was obvious that his certificate did not originate from the University of Ibadan
According to the Chairman, the institution does not tolerate any fraudulent acts which were capable of jeopardizing the integrity.
