Abuja - The Bonny Transformation Network (BOTRAN), a non-governmental organisation, has denounced calls for the dismissal of the Vice Chancellor of Ignatius Ajuru University of Education (IAUE) Portt Harcourt, Rivers State, Prof. Rosemund Dienye Green-Osahogulu.
The university official is said to be engaged in a tense standoff with husband her estranged husband, Prof. Joshua Dele Osahogulu, the suspended director in the Information Technology at the same university.

Asinyetogha Julian Benstowe and Micah Iwowari Jumbo, Chairman and Secretary of BOTRAN respectively, raised concern calls for the dismissal of Green-Osahogulu were based on apparent personal family issue.
The officials said such calls were thus “not only condemnable, flimsy and disappointing, but also unjust, considering that the allegations were unsubstantiated and no serious provision or consideration for her to state her own side of the story.”
“The hasty actions are worrisome and suspicious as all assertions made to prove her innocence has been dismissed and taken with a pinch of salt by those in authority.”
The officials said the order to have Green-Osahogulu vacate her official residence “left a sour taste in our mouth and that of observers” for a woman who had single handedly re-engineered the transformation of the institution and meticulously guided it through the transition from college to a university.
The reported problems between the couple date to June when unknown gun men abducted but later released Green-Osahogulu.
It was later alleged her husband was behind the abduction.
The institution later suspended him.
Apparently the suspension triggered the urge to get his pound of flesh, he occupied himself with further slandering of the Vice chancellor with damaging press releases alleging this time that the Vice Chancellor was having illicit relationship with the Bursar of the school,” BOTRAN officials said.
Comment could not be obtained from parties involved.
