ESUT Loses Accreditation Over Sack Of 153 Lecturersk by hailnko: 12:08am On Apr 20, 2016
The Enugu State University of Science and Technology (ESUT),has lost accreditation of several departments following its alleged disengagement of about 153 of its lecturers.
DAILY POST recalls that in what was then termed “academic fraud”, the affected university lecturers had lamented that they were sacked by ESUT authorities shortly after using them to scale last accreditation exercise of some of its faculties/departments.
Despite several protest letters and appeals, the University refused to rescind the sack.
Confirming the withdrawal of the accreditation of faculties/departments earlier given to ESUT authorities on Tuesday, the Director of Information and Public Relations of the NUC, Mallam Ibrahim Yakassai, said that the NUC under the Executive Secretary, Professor Julius Okojie frowned at a situation where some universities hired and sacked lecturers immediately after using them (lecturers) to
get accreditation from the Commission.
Malam Yakassai acknowledged that the Commission received several petitions from the dismissed lecturers from the Enugu State University
of Science and Technology over their alleged wrongful dismissal from service.
He said, “Following the series of petitions from the disengaged staff of
the Enugu State University of Science and Technology, the NUC on February 12, 2016 withdrew accreditation of Mass Communication,
Engineering, Psychology and some other departments. The NUC cannot sit down and watch such ugly development”.
In a Save Our Soul letter sent to the NUC through their lawyer, B. N Ugwu, the affected lecturers had alleged that they were intimidated, and unlawfully disengaged by the University authorities.

The petitioners recalled, “Sometime in May, 2015, the authorities of ESUT under the headship of Professor Cyprian Onyeji advertised and
offered employment to about 153 eligible applicants who scaled through in the pre-employment interviews and screening to different
departments and faculties of the university.
“Since our employment in May, 2015, none of us
had been paid salaries notwithstanding that we played our roles in teaching, setting examinations invigilating, markings papers,
supervision of projects and submission of result which enabled ESUT to access, promote and graduate deserving students accordingly.
“We can now realize that the essence of our employment was for the university to pass the 2015 NUC accreditation. It is sad that we have been dumped after being used for the accreditation exercise”.
They further stated that the authorities of ESUT immediately after
serving them with the purported letter of disengagement from service, back-dated it to October, 2015, before moving to advertise for their replacement.
“We cry wolf and shudder at this level of intimidation,
indiscriminate and unlawful sack/disengagement aimed at short-changing our dreams and aspirations. We are law abiding citizens of Nigerians.
“ESUT authorities are skimming presently to employ new staff/lecturers to fill our vacancies. The ESUT authorities sooner or later will approach the NUC to demand for fresh accreditation visit to
renew their respective department accreditation based on the purported
new lecturers that the institution is plotting to recruit at our detriment.
“We are confident that the Commission’s whip is potent enough to caution, correct, guide and direct any erring university authority in
the country. The change regime of President Muhammed Buahri is a
legacy, more importantly as the government frowns against corruption,
un-patriotism, and their likes”, they noted.
When contacted, the ESUT Director of Communication, Ossy Ugwuoti, said he was not competent to comment on the matter until he gets clearance from his principal. Source: http://dailypost.ng/2016/04/19/esut-loses-accreditation-over-sack-of-153-lecturers/.
