ASUU President, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke noted that the controversial appointment of Pantami by FUTO followed advertisements in some national dailies on September 2, 2020, which made Pantami purportedly apply for the position and thereafter given the position.

Reacting to the issues, the ASUU President noted that the Minister was only promoted to the rank of Lecturer 1 in 2013 before he left for Saudi Arabia.

According to Osodeke, the Minister purportedly skipped three positions – Senior Lecturer, Associate Professor, and Professor – with each having at least three years experience requirements.

Professor Osodeke said that information at his disposal revealed that the Minister resigned from the Abubakar Tafewa Balewa University, Bauchi in 2015 and moved to a university in Saudi Arabia as an Assistant Professor, which is an equivalent of an Assistant Lecturer in Nigeria. jamb results

According to Osodeke, Pantami left the academic to become the Director-General of the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) in 2016.

“There are serious doubt and unanswered questions bordering on the qualification of Dr. Isa Pantami for the position,” Prof. Osodeke said.

But Fani-Kayode is attacking ASUU, claiming he ‘knows Pantami well’ and advising citizens against judging him based on his religion.
