Former Vice President of Nigeria Atiku Abubakar has again sacks another 400 staff from his conglomerate after sacking 56 staff from his Gotel Communication in less than a week.
One of his subsidiary the American University of Nigeria based in Yola, Adamawa state has on Monday announced the sacking of the 400 staffs of the University.
This is the second time an institution owned by Nigeria’s former vice president Atiku Abubakar is sacking staff within a week. This comes three days after Gotel Communications sack 56 staff on Workers’ Day
AUN’s president Dawn Dekle signed the letters stating that the university no longer need the services of the affected staff.
Vice President, University Relations of the institution, Abubakar Abba Tahir, in a statement said the action by the institution is part of it’s restructuring for sustainability.
The statement reads in parts “It would not be realistic for AUN to continue to anchor its administrative structure on an over-bloated personnel whose role do not have significant effect on the philosophy of a development university.
“In the emerging sustainable structure, competitive personnel are being retained, while others released honorably. All those affected are being paid all their contractual benefits at the point of clearance, to carry on with their lives.”
