The Academic Staff Union of Universities has faulted the promotion of Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Ali Pantami, as a professor.
The union after its National Executive Council meeting declared the promotion as “illegal”.
This was stated at a press conference addressed by the President of ASUU, Professor 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.
“We have resolved to sanction ASUU members involved in his promotion and the VC of FUTO.”
