UNIABUJA Sued Over New VC’s Appointment



The governing council of the University of Abuja (UNIABUJA) has been dragged to the National Industrial court Abuja over the appointment of the third best candidate as the Vice-Chancellor of the university.
Lecturers of UNIABUJA took the decision to sue the council as they described the appointment as fraudulent and lacking due process because professors who came first and second in the VC selection interview, professor Umar Danbatta(87% scores) and professor AbdulRaheemAdebayo Lawal(73% scores) were bye-passed for the third best, Prof Michale Adikwu (64%) in the appointment.
Challenging the appointment are Dr Raji Rasheed, Dr Muktar Muhammad and Dr Nkoli Ifenyi who said that the appointment of professor Adikwu, a professor of pharmacy from University if Nigeria Nsukka didn’t only ignore merit, but the newly appointed VC is not qualified to lead the university as pharmacy, which he specialized in, is not taught in the university.
Joined in the suit are the university Senate, the Registrar, the Pro-Chancellor, Minister of Education, Nyesom Wike, the National Universities Commission (NUC), Dr. Samuel Ogbemudia, and Professor Michael Omale.
