LAUTECH sacks 255 staff
The management of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) Teaching Hospital has laid off about 255 workers, while 299 others were redeployed to state service.
An internal memorandum signed by one A.M Ajiferuke, dated 27th December 2017, 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, among whom are 55 resident doctors, are to be redeployed to the state service, bringing the total
of affected workers to 554.
It was discovered that axes may also fall on other workers of LAUTECH as the owner-states begin the process of weeding.
It was further gathered that various unions are fully ready for war against the owner-states' decision.
However, efforts made by our correspondent to get the spokesperson of the Teaching Hospital to confirm the list proved abortive as at the time of filing this report.
The Public Relations Officer of LAUTECH, Akin Fadeyi when called to speak on the matter said he could not comment because LAUTECH is different from the Teaching Hospital.
The President of the Association of Resident Doctors of Nigeria Ladoke Akintola Teaching Hospital Chapter, Dr. Sbastine Owoi in a telephone interview with our Correspondent described the transfer of his members as illegal and unwarranted.
He added that the structure of training of Resident Doctors does not give room for their transfer adding that the anomaly will be resisted within all legal ambits.
