Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun State recently directed managements of four tertiary institutions in the stage to put an immediate stop to admitting any more candidates for the 2015/2016 academic session.

The Council of Academic Staff Unions of the institution has warned the governor to rescind this directive within 14 days for an industrial action.

This warning was contained in a letter by the union to the governor and maid available to Punch.

The letter partly read, “The managements of the state-owned colleges of education (Ilesa and Ila-Orangun) and polytechnics (Iree and Esa-Oke) respectively have put the admission of students for the 2015/2016 academic session on hold under the guise of complying with a directive from the state government that admission must not be conducted in the next two years.

“Consequently, we are using this medium to demand that the government should come out clean on this issue and withdraw any directive stopping the admission within the next fourteen (14) days to prevent industrial crisis in the sector.”

The council worried that stopping admission will negatively impact the reputation of the institution as most of them have advertised for admission and some had even collected application fees from prospective students.

“It will leave the large number of students under the preliminary programmes stranded as their chance of transition to Year 1 class is so abruptly nullified," the letter said.
