Osun state government has announced the suspensions of Mr Akinyemi Philip, a teacher at Masifa Community Grammar School, Ejigbo, Osun.

 

Trixx NG learnt the teacher was suspended over his comments on Facebook, openly supporting the former Speaker of House of Assembly, Najeem Salaam.

It was also gathered that the affected teacher, Akinyemi Philip was a witness during the Tribunal, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court cases on the election of Governor Adegboyega Oyetola in 2018.

 

The suspension was contained in a letter signed by Mr. E.O. Onatola, Tutor General, Osun West Education District on Wednesday.

The letter reads: “I am directed to inform you that as a result of your actions of professional misconduct and abuse of Office, your actions created:

-Public assault to the authority concerned.

-Abuse of power as a teacher.

-Disobedience to your School Principal and in particular to the State Government of Osun.

 

“The Ministry of Education/Osun West Education District Office came up with the following decisions:

 

“It is a fact that you Mr. OR SCHOOL, EJIGBO. You are more focused on partisan politics than your duty as a teacher and commitment to the State Government as a Civil Servant in Osun State

 

(i) Your unpatriotic behavior, abusive and provocative postings and comments on social media are against the Civil Service rule () Unless contacted beforehand, you are not permitted to enter the school premises.

” Your unpatriotic behavior, abusive and provocative postings and comments on social media are against the Civil Service rule () Unless contacted beforehand, you are not permitted to enter the school premises.”

 

According to WithinNigeria, a chieftain of the APC, Barrister Kolapo Alimi condemned the development saying it is pettiness taken too far by the Oyetola administration.

 

He said, “They didn’t know that Philip was a civil servant then, but now that the guy showed that he is not and will never be an ingrate to his benefactor(s) like he (Oyetola) and his government are doing to their benefactors. Oyetola now deemed it fit to suspend this guy from the service, today. Is this how to reward a person that has once helped someone?

 

“This is Governor Gboyega Oyetola’s prime witness, Mr Phillips Akinyemi whom the Appeal and Supreme Courts upheld his witness to deliver judgments in Oyetola’s favour in the electoral litigation involving Gboyega Oyetola and Ademola Adeleke, and just because the man used Najeem Salam pictures on Facebook as profile picture, he was suspended indefinitely.

 

“The World can now see the prime ingrate in Governor Gboyega Oyetola’s blood. Akinyemi, a leading witness who saved our party, APC at the Supreme Court in 2019, he is a teacher and he was sacked simply because he was tagged Omo Aregbesola from his local government.”
