Govt Orders Closure of Osun Poly

Osun State Government has ordered the closure of The Osun State Polytechnic, Iree Campus, for two weeks.

The directive for the closure is coming following the return of suspended Rector, Tajudeen Odetayo.

The order for closure was issued by the state government in a statement signed by the Commissioner for Education, Dipo Eluwole on Thursday.

“This to inform the general public, particularly members of staff and students of Osun State Polytechnic, Iree to proceed on two weeks break, with immediate effect.

“The immediate break is a necessary action in order to maintain peace in the Institution consequent upon the forceful return of the suspended Rector, Dr. T.A. Odetayo.

“The general public should also note that School accounts have been frozen with immediate effect and it is imperative that everyone cooperates fully and adheres to these directives.”

Recall that the state government had suspended Odetayo through a letter signed by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education, Kehinde Jimoh, on July 24, 2023 for alleged gross misappropriation of funds and abuse of office.

He was replaced by Alabi Kehinde who was appointed in acting capacity.
