The Adamawa State government has sacked over 300 academic and non-academic staff of the state Polytechnic, Yola, who were employed by the Mohammed Bindow administration.

The Acting Registrar of the polytechnic, Rebecca Kinjir, signed the sack letters which was issued to the affected workers on Tuesday.

The workers were employed between 2017 and 2019.

She said the action was in compliance with the recommendation of the Visitation Panel to the institution set up by Governor Ahmadu Fintiri.

The letter, titled: “Stand-Down of Appointment of Staff Employed Between 2017-2019,” said those affected should hand over all school properties in their possession.

She said: “The Implementation Committee of the 2019 Visitation Panel to the polytechnic, set up by His Excellency, Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri, has approved the stand-down of your appointment.

“By this letter, you are directed to hand over all polytechnic materials to your Head of Department.

“The management wishes to thank you for the services you have rendered to the polytechnic during this period.”

The state government had constituted the visitation panel in all tertiary institutions after claiming that the past administration made some last-minute illegal recruitment.
