The Nnamdi Azikiwe University (NAU), Akwa, Anambra State has said that the institution enjoys a cordial working relationship with the Head of Civil Service of the Federation (HoCSF), Dr. Folasade Yemi-Esan, saying it was not associated with a group which reportedly called for her sack.
The institution in a statement on Sunday in Abuja, and signed by the Registrar, Barrister Philomena Iwara Okoye, on behalf of the Governing Council and the management of the University, dissociated itself from the call by a civil society group for the sack of the Head of Service, adding that the press release issued by the group was not authorized or sponsored by it.

Okoye added that the University did not at any time commission any individual, organisation or association, either directly or by proxy to make disparaging remarks on the person of the Head of Civil Service of the Federation on behalf of the institution.
“The university reaffirmed its recognition and respect for constituted authorities. As an Ivory tower, we have streamlined channels of communication to engage constituted authorities.
“It is equally imperative to point out that the institution mentioned in the press release- NNAMANI Azikiwe University, Akwa does not represent the name of our institution which is Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Akwa,” she said.
