ASUU declares Minister of Communication, Pantami’s Professorship Illegal, to sanction FUTO VC

As Academic Staff Union Of Universities commence the nation wide warning strike, the union also faulted the promotion of Minister Of Communication and Digital Economy, Dr. Isa Ali Pantami, as professor.

The union after its National Executive Council meeting declared the promotion as “illegal”.

This was declared at a press conference addressed by the President of ASUU, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, on Monday.

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.”

In September 2021, Pantami, alongside seven academics were elevated by the council of the Federal University of Technology, Owerri to the position of professorship at the council’s 186th meeting.

The minister’s elevation has generated controversy, with many faulting FUTO on the promotion of the minister, who was not teaching in the university and whose highest academic attainment was reportedly a lecturer before he ventured into politics. 

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