The Public Relations Officer of the Polytechnic, Sola Lawal, confirmed the suspension but was silent on the reason for it, while the suspension was said to have being communicated to the members of the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) by their chairman, Adekunle Masopa, at an emergency congress.
