ASUP decries registrar’s tenure elongation:at Jigawa Poly


DUTSE – The Academic Staff Union Polytechnic (ASUP) in Jigawa State Polytechnic has decried the extension of the tenure of the institution’s Registrar, Malam Sadisu Buhari, without due process.
This is contained in a statement jointly signed by the Chairman of Union Malam Husaini Shehu and its Secretary General, Malam Auwalu Kure, in Dutse on Wednesday.
The statement stated that extending the tenure of the incumbent registrar had contradicted the institution’s condition of service as contained in pages 9 to11.
It stated that the appointment should be through internal and external advertisement as applicable in all tertiary institutions to enable the candidate meet challenges of effective performance.
The union urged the state government to consider the critical moment of the polytechnic system by bringing an end to the crisis, which according to the statement, is affecting it academically.
It stated that the union has also urged the state government to look into the fate of the polytechnic and take necessary measures to correct the situation.
The statement further listed five major complaints of the union, which it stated, were presented before the state Ministry of Education at committee level.
The complaints included the issue of employing ghost workers and elongating the tenure of the registrar not contained in Section 10 of the Polytechnics Laws of 1998 and 2012.
Others were termination of staff appointment without following due process, mismanagement of afternoon programme fund and promotion of staff without observing due process.
The statement stated that all the above mentioned problems were historically associated with the way and manner the registrar was appointed.
The union, therefore, called on the state government to intervene and save the image of the institution in the academic arena as it had been doing without any prejudices, sentiments or interest.
The statement further indicated that ASUP was confident that the state government commitment to education was high, and it would not allow any person to sabotage its efforts on the ground of interest or sectionalism.
The union also pointed out that it had written to the government explaining and intimating it about what had been happening in the Polytechnic. (NAN)
