The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), University of Abuja chapter on Wednesday prevented Noble Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka, former Head of State, Gen. Yakubu Gowon Rtd and former Education Minister, Dr Oby Ezekwesili from speaking at an anti-corruption event.
The union led by its chairman, Dr Kasim Umaru, disrupted the event held at the University of Abuja.
Umaru told NAN in a telephone interview that they disrupted the programme because of the ongoing strike, adding that they have no regret for their actions. He said such magnitude of programme could not hold in the institution because lecturers
were also involved in the event.
He also said
“Those eminent personalities for the programme are all aware of our plight and did nothing, we disrupted the event because we are on strike,”
The convener of the event & National Coordinator of African Initiative Against Corruption and Exam Malpractice AFICEM, Dr Francis Abioye regretted the action of the ASUU, saying they erred by disrupting the event.
