FUTO Sues ASUU For Rejecting Pantami’s Professorship

FUTO Sues ASUU For Rejecting Pantami’s Professorship (Updated: 7 months ago)


The Vice Chancellor of the Federal University, Owerri (FUTO) has challenged the rejection of Dr. Isah Ibrahim Pantami’s promotion as a professor of Cyber Security by the institution.

FUTO VP, Prof. Nnenna Oti made the revelation according to a report by TheNation.

This followed the threat by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to sanction FUTO management for approving Pantami as a professor while he is still in Federal Government’s active service as a minister.

Oti told The Nation yesterday that the management went to court on the matter, saying any comment or discussion on it is subjudice.

But a senior management worker, who spoke in confidence, claimed that ASUU has no right to dabble into a matter it has no jurisdiction over.

“Just like ASUU does not tell the university council and its Senate who to promote, it cannot tell them the criteria for promoting somebody to rank of professor. In law, you cannot withdraw what you don’t have. ASUU does not regulate appointments and promotions. Some of these things are derived from NUC guidelines, and every university sets up its standard,” the source said.
