ASUU: ABU denies threat to withdraw Kashifu’s certificate over UTAS


 

Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) has denied threatening to withdraw the certificate of a top government official, Inuwa Kashifu, over comments about the Academic Staff Union of Universities’ payment platform UTAS.

Kashifu is the Director-General of the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA).

The agency had announced that the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS) developed by ASUU failed an integrity test.

ABU Director of Public Affairs, Auwalu Umar, explained that Kashifu never attended the institution for any academic program.

In a statement at the weekend, the spokesperson said at no time did the management issue such a threat.

“Kashifu Inuwa Abdullahi, from records available, never attended ABU for any academic programme, be it undergraduate, graduate or sub-degree”, the rebuttal reads.

Umar added that the clarification was released to ensure the federal government and Nigerians stay informed on the matter.
