The Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Akwa has affirmed that the institution enjoys a cordial and good working relationship with the Head of Service of the Federation, Dr. Folasade Yemi-Esan saying it is not associated with a group which reportedly called for her sack.
In a disclaimer published on page 24 in the Daily Sun Newspaper of Friday 18th March, 2022, and signed by the Registrar, Barr. Philomena Iwara Okoye, on behalf of the Governing Council and the management of the University, the institution dissociated itself from the call by a civil society group for the sack of the Head of Service, adding that the press release issued by the group was not authorised or sponsored by it.
The disclaimer further stated that the University did not at anytime commission any individual, organisation or association, either directly or by proxy to make disparaging remarks on the person of the Head of Civil Service of the Federation.
The University reaffirmed it’s recognition and respect for constituted authorities, stressing that as an Ivory tower, it has streamlined channels of communication to engage constituted authorities.
In the disclaimer, the University also stated that, “it is equally imperative to point out that the institution mentioned in the press release- NNAMANI Azikiwe University, Akwa does not represent the name of our institution which is NNAMDI Azikiwe University, Akwa”.
