Michael Adewale Ifemosu, an undergraduate student of the Federal University of Agriculture (FUNAAB), has been sent packing by the university management for allegedly posting an open letter on his Facebook page to the Vice Chancellor of the institution, Prof. Kolawole Saloko.
Findings by Campusbiz revealed that the institution stated that Ifemosu was expelled because he posted an open letter on his Facebook page to the VC, in which he was said to have raised what it called allegations and misrepresentation of fact aout the university.
Ifemosu is the Convener, Youth In Good Governance Initiative (YIGGI), and Ogun State Secretary for African Action Congress (AAC).
In the alleged open letter, the 200 level student of FUNAAB talked about the poor transportation system of the institution, as well as the way students were reportedly being harassed by the Nigerian police.
He accused the management of the institution of “lackadaisical attitude and unprefessional management decisions” which he explained was causing calamitious implosion in the university.
“The FUNAAB Bureau of Transport (FUNAABOT) has performed below expectations despite millions of naira allotted and allocated to the department for the purchase and renovation of MANCOTS but all went down the drain. Those monies remain carpeted till this moment.
“Again, I read in the News that the VC of FUNAAB wrote to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) that they are free to arrest students found wanting and guilty of cybercrimes.
“I would have said it was a god move not until I became a victim amd also received report of the arrest and detention of innocent students who were unjustly harrassed, extorted and brutalised. This is what you get when people who if managing a poultry, would make sure eggs are stolen, are given a University to manage,” part of his open letter stated.
In his letter of expulsion which was signed by the Registrar of the institutiion, Dr. Bola Adekola, the university confirmed that it expelled Ifemosu for writing an open letter on Facebook to the VC of FUNAAB.
