Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Friday constituted a panel to investigate the lingering crisis at the Lagos State Polytechnic.
Sanwo-Olu also ordered the workers fired by the school to forward their letters of appeal to the institution’s Governing Council within seven days for a review of the process of their disengagement.
The governor expressed concern over the effects of the lingering crisis on the school.
He said the state government was aware of the humiliation the Governing Council and management of the school had endured in the last six months when this impasse began, calling on all stakeholders to keep the peace in the interest of the students.
Sanwo-Olu said, “By the powers conferred on me as Governor of Lagos State, I hereby order the constitution of a Visitation Panel to the institution to investigate all contentious issues and submit its recommendations for my consideration.
“The state government, without prejudice to an earlier rebuff of its magnanimous gesture to re-consider the disengagement of some employees of the institution, is once again asking the disengaged officers who are willing to continue their service in the institution to forward their letters of appeal to the institution’s Governing Council within seven days for a review of their disengagement.”
