Edo State Governor, Mr Godwin Obaseki, has directed the management of Ambrose Alli University in Ekpoma to retrieve all recent illegal disengagement letters issued to the staff of the institution.

In a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media Projects, Crusoe Osagie, and made available to The Standard Gazette, the governor insisted that the sack notices were null and void.

"The Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has directed the management of Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma, to reverse and retrieve all recent illegal disengagement letters issued to staff of the institution," the statement read.

The governor's directive follows reports of the university management's alleged illegal dismissal of some staff members. Governor Obaseki has ordered an in-depth investigation into the matter, promising that anyone found guilty of wrongdoing will be held accountable.

"The management is to retrieve any such illegal letters if they were ever issued and reinstate the affected staff," the statement continued. "The government reiterates its commitment to the welfare of staff and is working to address all lingering issues affecting workers at the state-owned institution."

The move has been welcomed by affected staff members, who expressed relief at the governor's intervention. "We are grateful to the governor for stepping in and setting things right," said one staff member who spoke on condition of anonymity.

The development has also drawn reactions from various quarters, with some commending the governor's swift action. "This is a clear demonstration of the governor's commitment to fairness and justice," said a community leader in Ekpoma.

The Edo State Government has promised to keep the public updated on developments regarding the matter.
