Osun govt orders closure of Iree Poly, freezes accounts

THE Osun State government has ordered the closure of the state polytechnic in Iree for two weeks.

The government also froze the school accounts with immediate effect.

This was sequel to the resumption of the suspended rector of the institution, Dr Tajudeen Odetayo who recently secured interim injunction to stay the execution of his suspension pending the determination of the matter before court.

The closure and freezing of the institution’s account was contained in statement by the Commissioner for Education, Dipo Eluwole.

The release noted that the action was necessary in order to maintain peace in the Institution consequent upon the return of the suspended rector.

The release reads in part, “This is to inform the general public, particularly members of staff and students of Osun State Polytechnic, Iree to proceed on two (2) 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.”
