In response to the suspension of academic activities by the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) at Osun State Polytechnic, Governor Ademola Adeleke has issued a call for calm.

The suspension of academic activities came after the state government suspended the institution’s Rector, Tajudeen Odetayo.

The governor’s appeal for tranquility was conveyed through a statement signed by the Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenments, Kolapo Alimi, on Tuesday.

In the statement, Adeleke expressed his concern over the protests by ASUP and urged all parties involved to maintain peace and avoid further disruptions.

Assuring ASUP and the students of Osun State Polytechnic, Governor Adeleke asserted that “the matter would be thoroughly examined and appropriate actions taken.”

To address the situation, the OSPOLY governing board would be constituted to investigate the allegations that led to the Rector’s suspension.

While recognising the reasons behind the protests, Adeleke emphasised the necessity of the administration’s actions and promised a comprehensive investigation to address any misunderstandings.

He urged ASUP “to halt the protest and allow the investigation to take its course.”

The governor stated the importance of restoring peace within the school community and discouraged ASUP from being influenced by political opposition.

Governor Adeleke’s call for calm seeks to ensure a conducive environment for resolving the issue surrounding the Rector’s suspension and restoring normalcy to Osun State Polytechnic.
