Nigeria: Dons Caution Against Pre-Empting UniAbuja Panel Report

The Integrity Group of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), University of Abuja Chapter Tuesday cautioned against pre-empting the outcome of a visitation Panel Report on the university crisis.

A statement signed by Dr Ya'u Damagun, group's chairman in Gwagwalada council, criticized insinuations on the outcome of the report by Dr Clement Chup's led ASUU in the institution.

It could be recalled that government constituted a special visitation panel to the university following a demand made by Chup led ASUU.

The statement said petitions made against the incumbent vice-chancellor of the university by Comrade Chup led ASUU was not in the interest of peace and progress of the university.

According to the statement, the insinuations and pre-emptiness of the panel report as well as petitions against the incumbent administration of the university on frivolous matters is an attempt to remove the vice-chancellor.

"We wish to put a caveat that the same group is unfortunately going about insinuating and pre-empting outcomes of the visitation panel's report and white paper," the statement read.
