No comment on ASUU’s opposition to my appointment as a professor. Pantami

Ali Pantami, the Minister of Communication and Digital Economy, refused to comment on the Academic Staff Union of Universities’ refusal to recognise his elevation as professor of Cybersecurity by the Federal University of Technology, Owerri, on Wednesday, February 16.


Remember that ASUU called Pantami’s professorship “illegal” and threatened to prosecute those responsible.


When State House reporters pressed Pantami on the subject, he repeatedly said:


“No comment.

“On your second question, no comment. No comment, and no comment. That’s my position. I’m here for official assignment, asks me about that responsibility. So, anything to deal with my ministry of communications and digital economy, I can be subjected to you and that’s why I come here. I couldn’t go anywhere.

“The institution you have quoted mentioned they are in court. As a government official, do you know what contempt of court is? You need to know. Because of this, I’m a law-abiding citizen. No comment, I hope you get it. There’s no comment.”
