Written by Olarotimi Oshin on August 11, 2023
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) on Thursday decried the federal government’s decision to dissolve the governing councils in universities across the country.
The union called on President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to rescind what they described as an obnoxious decision to dissolve the councils without completing their tenures of office.
The National Vice Chairman of ASUU, Comrade Christopher Piwuna, of the University of Jos, who spoke while presenting a paper at an event organised in honour of retiring lecturers said it is wrong to dissolve governing councils and transfer the powers of our councils to the Federal Ministry of Education or the National Universities Commission (NUC) without due recourse to the university laws.
