ASUU Kicks Against Appointment Of Some Members of Governing Council

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has kicked against the appointment of some set of people who are not first degree holder into the governing councils of any federal university.

The President of ASUU, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke made this position known in an interview with Nigerian Tribune.

He added that the same rule is applicable to various state governments regarding their respective universities.

He explained that it is difficult for somebody to effectively superintend over a system he or she does not have a taste of as a student, let alone understand such system.
