Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, on Monday sacked over 400 staff of the American University of Nigeria. The university which solely owned by Atiku Abubakar may have come under burden of overhead costs including payment of staff salaries.
This comes three days after another of Atiku’s companies, Gotel Communication, a media outfit, sacked 46 staff on Workers Day.
President of AUN, Dawn Dekle, signed the sack letters seen, stating that the university no longer required the services of the affected staff.
Some of the disengaged workers told SaharaReporters that they were fired without severance benefits despite serving the university for about 10 years.
However, Vice President, University Relations of the institution, Abubakar Abba Tahir, denied the allegation.
