The Minister of Communication and Digital Economy, Ali Pantami, Wednesday declined comment on the stand of the Academic Staff Union of Universities against his promotion as a professor of Cybersecurity by the Federal University of Technology, Owerri.

ASUU had on Monday described the professorship awarded to Pantami as illegal.

Asked by State House reporters to comment on the issue, Pantami repeatedly said: “No comment”,

He said: “On your second question, no comment. No comment, and no comment. That’s my position. I’m here for official assignment, asks me about that responsibility. So, anything to deal with my ministry of communications and digital economy, I can be subjected to you and that’s why I come here. I couldn’t go anywhere.”

“The institution you have quoted mentioned they are in court. As a government official, do you know what contempt of court is? You need to know. Because of this, I’m a law-abiding citizen. No comment, I hope you get it. There’s no comment.”
