CLO demands action on YabaTech fraud panel findings
The Civil Liberties Organisation, CLO, has said there is an urgent need for an impartial and far-reaching investigation of financial and administrative activities of Yaba College of Technology Rector, Dr. Margaret Ladipo.
It could be recalled that CLO, actively participated and cooperated with the panel of investigation and submitted a memorandum to the federal government’s committee probing the claims of financial impropriety against Ladipo in December 2015.
In a letter dated March 9, 2016, signed by CLO’s president, Comrade Igho Akeregha, and addressed to the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, the organisation said it was already public knowledge that the report of the committee has since been submitted to the government for necessary action.
“The CLO was informed that the panel had submitted its recommendations and it is on the table of the Honourable Minister of Education for necessary action.
“Having waited for months without words from government, the CLO is by this letter appealing to you to please do the needful so the staff (whistle blowers), who exposed the massive corruption within the system, are not abandoned to suffer for upholding integrity as they have been victimised and dismissed by the embattled Rector.
“We also have on good authority that as the delay lingers, records of the crime are being obliterated and more acts of financial haemorrhage and brigandage are also being perpetrated while both the whistle blowers and the nation suffer incalculable damage. Justice delayed is justice denied,” the letter reads.
