The Minister of Communications and Digital Economy Ibrahim Pantami has added the title of ‘Professor’ to his name.
Checks by The Nation show that Pantami made the change on his verified Facebook page.
But he made the changes on his Facebook page on January 16, 2022.
The Nation also observed that on several awards and fliers posted on the page, the title of ‘Professor’ had since been added to his name.
All of these developments appear subtle reactions to the recent verdict passed by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) on his appointment as a Professor of Cyber security by the Federal University of Technology Owerri (FUTO).
ASUU describe his professorship as faulty and illegal.
