    ASUU Rejects Advertorial For UniAbuja’s Vice Chancellor Position

    Members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) at the University of Abuja (UniAbuja) are at loggerheads with Tahir Mamman, the minister of education.

    The Academic Staff Union Of Universities (ASUU), University of Abuja branch, has rejected the advertisement for the institution’s Vice Chancellor position.

    It would be recalled that the current management of the University, led by the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Abdulrasheed Na’Allah, had recently placed an advertorial on the vacancy of the post of the Vice Chancellor in a national daily.

    But, addressing a press conference in Abuja on Thursday, the chairperson of the University’s branch of ASUU, Dr. Sylvanus Ugoh, stated that the advertorial, as part of the process of appointing a new Vice Chancellor, was not acceptable to the Union and its members because it contravened relevant laws.

    The decision was taken following its congress held on March 19, 2024, at Abuja, where it undertook a comprehensive review of issues of urgent attention which the Union had engaged the University Administration led by Na’Allah as the Vice Chancellor of University of Abuja.

    The Union lamented that at different times, the Federal Government’s actions and inactions have contributed negatively to the smooth running of the Universities’ administration in Nigeria especially the University of Abuja, saying the congress was alarmed for the umpteenth time with the reports of issues in the University that have affected the smooth flow of academic cultures and traditions.
