The Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr. Isa Ali Pantami’s professorship have reportedly been declared illegal by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

The Union through a statement released by its President, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke stated that it is illegal for the minister to be promoted to a Professor by the Federal University of Technology Owerri (FUTO). He, however, noted that the FUTO Vice-Chancellor and members of the union involved in his promotion will be sanctioned.

In September 2021, the minister and seven others were promoted by the FUTO council to the position of professorship at its 186th meeting. This later resulted in a controversy as many argued that Pantami does not possess the necessary requirements to be awarded such.

The ASUU president at a press conference held on Monday, February 14, announced that the minister is qualified to be a Professor and should not be treated as such.

In his words:

“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.”
