Stop interfering in our varsity affairs, UNIABUJA's SSANU tells national body

The Senior Staff Asso­ciation of Universities (SSANU), Univer­sity of Abuja (UNIABUJA) chapter, has urged its na­tional body to stop interfer­ing on the internal affairs of the institution or risk losing its credibility.
A member of a faction of the association, Malam Gar­ba Mohammed, who stated this while reacting to a pub­lication in one of the nation’s dailies ( not The AUTHOR­ITY), captioned “SSANU battles Abuja varsity VC over sack of two union members,” condemned the attacks on the management of the varsity led by the Vice Chancellor ,Pro­fessor Micheal Adikwu and the institution’s governing council.
He said the disciplin­ary measures meted on two members of SSANU in the university were strictly an in­ternal affairs of the varsity, re­sulting from a careful applica­tion of the varsity’s extant laws and relevant sections of Uni­versity of Abuja’s condition of service act, in which the affected staff can still seek a judicial review if they so wish.
Malam Mohammed also noted that the national body’s ultimatum of 21 days within which the VC was asked to withdraw comments made against its ‘’leadership or face its wrath, as published in another newspaper titled, “ UNIBUJA disowns SSANU leader, secretary,” is a misrep­resentation of fact and un­called for.”
