Dissolution of Dangote University Governing Council Inappropriate, Says ASUU

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) of Aliko Dangote University of Science and Technology, Wudil, Kano State, has described the dissolution of the institution’s Governing Council by the state governor, Abba Kabir Yusuf, as inappropriate.

In a statement signed by the union’s Chairman, Dr. Aliyu Yusuf, yesterday in Kano, ASUU lamented the dissolution of the council, which was effected by the governor on May 29, 2023.

The statement pointed out that the union was dismayed over the continuous running of the institution, formerly known as Kano State University of Science and Technology, without a governing council as a result of the dissolution.

According to the statement, the dissolution was in breach, and disregarded the provisions of the Kano State University of Science and Technology (Amendment) Law of 2017.

The union, therefore, urged the state governor to, as a matter of urgency, reconstitute the governing council “to avoid paralysing the university system.”

ASUU also urged the state government to settle the outstanding entitlements of the staff of the university.
