ASUU vows to sanction FUTO, declares Pantami’s professorship illegal

The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, says it has concluded plans to sanction its members in the Federal University of Technology Owerri, FUTO, and the university’s Vice-Chancellor over the “illegal” promotion of the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Ali Pantami.

The union, which made this known during a press conference by its National President, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke held in Lagos on Monday, said promoting the minister to a professor was illegal.

According to ASUU, it is impossible to be a minister and a lecturer at the same time, describing the promotion as encouragement of illegality.

The union gave Pantami the option of quitting his job as a minister, saying he is currently not qualified to be treated as a professor.

He said, “You cannot be a minister and a lecturer in a university. It is an encouragement of illegality.

“Pantami has to quit as a minister and be tried for doing double jobs within the same federal system. He is not qualified. Pantami should not be treated as a professor.

“We have resolved to sanction ASUU members involved in his promotion and the VC of FUTO.”
