A significant development unfolded on Tuesday at the esteemed College of Education Arochukwu, situated in Abia State. An assertive group of employees gathered outside the offices of the Registrar and Bursar, respectfully urging their voluntary withdrawal from their positions.
Aro Okeigbo Blog gathered that the staff of the college demand stems from compelling evidence indicating that both individuals were originally employed 43 years ago in 1980. Despite surpassing the mandatory retirement threshold, they have been protected by the previous Provost.
In adherence to the established civil service guidelines, which stipulate a maximum of 35 years in service, the Registrar in question is Mr. Ikechukwu Odoemelelam, accompanied by the Bursar, Mr. Anthony Odoemelelam, who find themselves at the center of this predicament.
Guiding the workers through this transformative endeavor is the recently reinstated Union Leader, Mr. Kevin O. Egesi, who assumed leadership responsibilities only two weeks ago. He spearheads the collective effort, aptly referred to as a “cleansing exercise.”
In response to this pressing matter, the Acting Provost, Mr. Ikechukwu Okorouga, respectfully welcomed the workers and pledged to address the situation appropriately, ensuring compliance with the relevant regulations and principles.
