The Cable reports the decision was made at the emergency congress of the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP).

Adekunle Masopa, the chairman of ASUP, said that the decision was taken based on what he called “21 grounds”.

He said that though the union tried to intervene, the academic board members said their decision was final.

In a formal paper sent to the union, the board noted one of the things Adekolawole was suspended for was that he left his duty for about a month.

Another was that he ‘disrespected’ his office by building a well-furnished bedroom in it that has a kingsize bed, creating an environment that encouraged him to often sleep at work.

On the case of fraud, the paper said:

“Improper improvisation of dual award programme of National Diploma plus NCE (Nigeria Certificate in Education) programme in collaboration with a consultant.”

When news of his suspension got to Inistagram, many Nigerians had a lot to say about it. Legit.ng compiled some of their reactions below:

In a separate story, there was drama during the swearing-in of the Cabinet in Tanzania on Wednesday, December 9, after a nominated deputy Minister struggled to read his oath in Swahili.

Francis Ndulane who had been appointed the deputy Minister for Minerals failed to accurately read the content of his oath of office during the function that was presided by President .

According to The Citizen, the no-nonsense head of state said he would replace Ndulane with another nominee after he failed to read the oath despite being given three opportunities to do so.

“I can see the prime minister looking at me carefully because together with him (Ndulane) they are the only MPs from Lindi in the Cabinet. We will look for someone who can properly read the documents before entering his office and unveil whether there are forgeries,” Magufuli, nicknamed the bulldozer, said.
