ASUU says Pantami’s professorship is illegal

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has declared as illegal the professorship title granted to the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Ali Pantami.

The Union stated this at a press conference held after its National Executive Council meeting on Monday, February 14, 2022.

ASUU President, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, announced that Pantami shouldn’t be accorded the treatment of a professor because his elevation to that status was illegal.

“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,” stated ASUU.

Pantami bagged his promotion to a professorship position during the 186th Council meeting of the Federal University of Technology, Owerri (FUTO) in November 2021.

The council received massive criticisms for its decision to promote the Minister who was not an academic staff member of the university.
