The Governing Council of the Federal University, Oye-Ekiti, has suspended the Registrar, Olatunbosun Odusanya, for alleged misconduct.
This is contained in a statement issued in Ado-Ekiti by the Special Adviser on Media Matters to the Vice-Chancellor, Wole Balogun.
Mr Balogun said Mr Odusanya was suspended by the University Governing Council, chaired by Mohammed Yahuza, to allow proper investigation into allegations of misconduct levelled against him over irregularities in recent appointments.
