There was drama at Ekiti State University (EKSU), Ado-Ekiti, yesterday as the former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Secretary, Dr. Temitope Aluko, showed up for verification of pensioners in the institution.
Aluko stormed the university’s pension office where he was attended to by officials.
The former Head of Department of Business Administration displayed his EKSU 2016 Pensioner’s Verification Certificate to reporters and others present.
His pensioner’s number is 158 with his year of retirement being 2010.
The Ekiti governorship poll whistleblower said his verification is evidence that he is a retiree of the state-owned university, contrary to the government’s claim that he was dismissed from service.
Aluko said: “Every three years, you have to appear at EKSU to show that you are alive and that you are a retiree of the university. I am just lucky I have my (pensioner) certificate to show that I am a retiree now.
The government has been saying that I was sacked but this is evidence that I was not sacked.
“I built the Department (of Business Administration) from scratch and rose to become the Head.
“I was never given any query. Government officials came here looking for my file in a desperate bid to implicate me.
