A human rights activist and lawyer, Mr. Kanmi Ajibola, has warned Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun state not to go ahead with the planned sack of workers in Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) Teaching hospital.

Ajibola said sacking the over 600 workers will amount to contempt, because the matter is pending before the Osogbo High court.

He said “The governor claims he is good and somebody who respects the rule of law and he must demonstrate it. The case has been taken to court and he must abide by the rule of law and should not do anything against it pending the destination of the suit.

“Anything done after the service of the processes becomes illegal and he should not be involved in such but should rather wait patiently until the case is resolved in court.”

He also said "Four years ago, the management of the teaching hospital advertised vacancies in the hospital and employed those they considered qualified among the applicants."

Ajibola also asked Governor Aregbesola to ask the governing board of the hospital to stop the planned sack of the workers.

Meanwhile the Governor came under fire recently, from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for allegedly asking for more bailout funds.
