Staff accuse former rector of embezzling school’s money

Some workers at the Federal Polytechnic, Ekowe, Bayelsa State, have called for a probe of the institution’s former rector, Eneyi Ekpebu, and current bursar, James Neminebor.

The workers stated their position in a statement by the chairman, Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Polytechnics, Ekowe chapter, Endurance Keyamo.

They accused Messrs Ekpebu and Neminebor of embezzling unpaid workers benefits running into hundreds of millions of naira.

The workers commended the removal of Mr. Ekpebu from office shortly before the end of his tenure. They asked the federal government to set up a panel to probe Messrs Ekpebu and Neminebor, whom they also accused of illegal transfers of money from the school’s salary account.

The former rector had a turbulent period with SSANIP while in office.
