Those sacked were Prof. Dipo Kolawole of the University of Ado-Ekiti (UNAD), Prof. Oye Bandele of the University of Science and Technology, Ifaki-Ekiti, and Prof. Akin Ogunlade of the University of Education, Ikere-Ekiti.
The governor also sacked the Provost of the state-owned College of Education, Ikere-Ekiti, Dr. Titilayo Ogunmola..
Fayemi, according to the statement, appointed Prof. Francesca Aladejana of the Faculty of Education, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, as the Acting Provost of the College of Education. Kolawole of UNAD was, however, directed to hand over to the most senior professor in the institution.
The statement said the changes were with immediate effect.
