“After careful consideration of the issues above, the Governing Council found you guilty as your actions and activities amount to misconduct.
“The Governing Council, therefore, approves the immediate terminations of your appointment with effect from Friday, September 11. You are to hand over all properties of the institution in your possession to your Head of Department.”
