ASUU Distances Self from Lecturers Partaking in Elections

The Academic Staff Union of Universities has distanced itself from lecturers partaking in elections, insisting that they do not represent the union and its benefits.

According to ASUU, the request has been made to indulge in all parts of the elections, ranging from the polling units down to the announcements. The government completely turned them down, which led to the unions’ withdrawal.


Emmanuel Osadokke, the Union president, described the system as flawed and said that the union had participated in elections during the era of Professor Jega Attahiru (former Asuu president) but chose to stop because the election processes were fraudulent.

He also cited the cases of vice-chancellors who acted as Returning Officers (RO) in elections but had no influence whatsoever, as they were only expected to announce results that had allegedly been written.
