American University of Nigeria, Yola, sacks 400 staff

Sequel to a long restructuring process, the American University of Nigeria (AUN), Yola, Adamawa, has disengaged the services of about 400 of its staff.

Prof. Abba Tahir, the Vice President for University Relations, AUN, made the disclosure in a statement made available to newsmen in Yola on Tuesday.

Tahir said that majority of the affected personnel were those that had no significant developmental effect on the philosophy of the university.

“Certain structural elements have been initiated by the new Governing Council of American University of Nigeria (AUN), in response to NUC requirements, mandating the institution to align with an approved governance structure for all tertiary institutions in the country.

He said that all those affected were paid all their contractual benefits at the point of clearance, to continue with their lives somewhere else.

Tahir said that as a typical American style institution, AUN deliberately trained its students to search for sustainable solutions to human development challenges.
