The Federal Government has vowed not to rescind its decision to sack 13 Vice Chancellors.
Thirteen VCs were sacked last week out of which six were at the tail end of their tenure. This is even as protests and controversies have trailed the sack within the academic circle.
However, Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, Thursday, at the flag off of the 2015/2016 annual school census in Abuja, reaffirmed the sacking of the VCs by the Federal Government.
Asked why the VC of NOUN Prof. Tenebe, whose tenure had not expired, was removed, the Minister explained that he was removed because of the petitions against him.
He said: “Do you reverse government decision simply because somebody has criticized them? I don’t think there is any decision of government not going down well with everyone in the country.
“The ministry has received communications from some people who feel like this and we are looking at this.
“What I am saying is that they have already written to us. We are looking into their complaints. We will reply them”, he said.
