Isa Pantami, the former Minister of Aviation, has questioned the leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), which is opposed to the professorship recently handed to Isa Pantami, the Minister of Communication and Digital Economy.
On Monday, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) National Executive Council rejected a report submitted by the Federal University of Technology (FUTO) chapter of ASUU endorsing the appointment of Nigeria’s minister of communications and digital economy, Isa Pantami, as a professor of cybersecurity.
Addressing journalists in Abuja on Monday November 15 at the end of a two-day meeting of the National Executive Council, newly elected President of the association Victor Osodeke stated that ”there are many unanswered questions on Mr Ibrahim’s professorship’.
Reacting to this development, FFK via his Instagram page wrote;
”What has Isa Pantami done to ASUU? When will the hatred stop? Is it because he is Muslim? I know Pantami well and he is eminently qualified to be a Professor. Let us be guided by love and not hate. Lies, disinformation, prejudice, ignorance and religious bigotry has blinded many in our country.”
