Adamawa: Registrar SPY defies Fintiri sack order, redefines office
By the Periscope
The registrar Adamawa State Polytechnic Yola, Rebecca Sale Kinjir, has disregarded executive directives, dismissing her from duties.
Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri of Adamawa has in his maiden broadcast to the state on June 6, 2019, suspended all the lacing of due process appointments made by his predecessor, Muhammadu Umaru Jibrilla Bindow after March 28, 2019, pending verification of the necessity for such appointments.
The registrar’s appointment was alleged to be ostensibly hurriedly rushed through by Bindow, on April 12, 2019 after INEC had conclusively declared Fintiri as the winner of the 2019 governorship race in the state.
The Fombina online reporter visited visited the polytechnic Tuesday, and has revealed that the Registrar would either not or was yet comply with the executive directives, which nullified her appointment pending verification
The Registrar would however not entertain questions by the Fombina reporter as to why she would not vacate the office despite the governor’s directive. She said the Rector of the institution that would answer the questions appropriately.
Efforts of the reporter to meet with the rector was failed as the rector was said to be engaged in series of meetings.
But a source at the office confided in the reporter that after the said broadcast and receipt of correspondence from the SSG’s office, the rector has communicated the directive to the registrar adding that “I don’t know why the registrar still remained in office.”
Investigation by the reporter has indicated that the rector was hamstrung by the fact that he could not single handedly effect her sack as the responsibility was the exclusive preserve of the governing council of the institution and presently, the institution has none.
“It was in that respect that the rector wrote a memo to the ministry of higher education telling the ministry of his constraints so that it could wade in to ensure the directive was honoured. This is all I can tell you on the matter,” the source said.
