The Ahmadu Bello University Zaria’s branch of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has recommended the withdrawal of the academic certificate issued to Kaduna State Governor, Malam Nasiru El-Rufai, for alleged violations of the requirements in character and learning deemed worthy of an ABU degree award.
The recommendation was made as part of resolutions adopted by the union after its congress on Wednesday.
The union, in a statement signed by the union branch Chairman, Harun Jibril, and Secretary, Hussein Abdullahi, lamented what it describes as El- Rufai’s attempt to illegally and forcibly take over lands belonging to the institution despite a court order prohibiting him from doing so.
‘’ The ASUU-ABU branch at its congress meeting of 2nd March, 2022 deliberated on the matter of the attempt by Nasiru El-Rufai, the executive Governor of Kaduna State to illegally and forcefully and in utter disregard of an order by a competent court of law, take over lands belonging to the Ahmadu Bello University, an institution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and a historic and premier university,” the statements reads.
