The Academic Staff Union of Nigerian Universities (ASUU) at the University of Maiduguri yesterday held an emergency meeting where they called for the conclusion of the selection of a new vice chancellor for the university by its Governing Council.

The resolution of the Union, which was signed by its Chairman, Dr. Musa Abdullah and Secretary Dr. Ahmed Umar, indicated that the emergency meeting was held to discuss the selection of the new vice chancellor.

According to the three point resolution, the Governing Council chairman Alhaji Lawan Marguba should be cautioned against interfering with smooth functions of the council.

“The process of the selection of Unimaid vice chancellor should continue to its logical conclusion without further delay,” it said, adding, “All other issues in contention should be brought before the full Governing Council for deliberations and conclusion in line with the university rules and procedures,” it added.

It would be recalled that the selection board of the university had on Thursday, April 25th in Abuja, interviewed 11 candidates who had applied to replace Professor Mala M. Daura, whose tenure will end on June 2, 2014. However, the selection process was reportedly suspended on the orders of the council chairman following the alleged receipt of about 21 petitions against one of the frontline contenders.
