FUTO Alumni Decry Unauthorised Use Of Association By Individual Member

Must read

Federal University of Technology Owerri (FUTO) Alumni Association has decried the use of its name by individual members for activities not authorised by the Association.

This is contained in a release signed by the Association’s National President, Mr Ndubuisi Chijioke and made available to newsmen in Owerri on Friday.

Chijioke described the association as a corporate entity founded on the principles laid out in it’s constitution which clearly spells out the requirements for membership.

He urged the asssociation’s members to desist from using it’s name for personal reasons in a way that could result in public disrepute.

He further dissociated the association from a proposed meeting with the University management organised by some members of the association under the auspices of FUTO Alumni Elders, a group which he said was not recognised by the association.

” Members must not usurp or lay claim to be representatives of the association or act without the consent of the association in any way that brings the association to disrepute or public opprobrium.

” Our National Executive Council (NEC) wishes to dissociate FUTO Alumni Association and her members from this event.

” NEC wishes to clarify that the association has not committed any funds or authorised the University to avail or expend any fund for this event from the Alumni funds in its custody “, he said.

Speaking on the professorial award to Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, Chijioke noted that the association had ” taken note of the position of the Academic Staff Union of Universities ASUU “.

He expressed disappointment over the continued dent on the University’s image in recent times and called on the association’s members to help change the narrative by insisting that whatever was wrong must be made right.

” We must be unequivocal and unapologetic in taking the necessary actions to address any failure of institutional leadership or process in whatever form “, he said.
