A High Court sitting in Awka, Anambra State, on Thursday, fixed July 3 for ruling in a suit seeking the removal of the Executive of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Nnamdi Azikiwe University (NAU) branch.

Dr. Chris Abakare, who contested for the position of the chairman of the union but lost to Dr Stephen Ufoaroh sued ASUU over irregularities in its recently held election.

Justice Peace Otti, who was supposed to deliver the ruling on Thursday, gave the reason for fixing a new date.

The plaintiff had insisted that he was wrongfully disqualified from participating in the process based on what he called election malpractice resulting from ‘proposed’ guideline introduced after the process of election had begun.

He contended that his disqualification was unlawful, claiming that he met all the criteria needed for him to participate in the election.

Abakare, in suit No.A/295/2018, filed by his lawyer, O.M. Madukaife, contended that he was unjustly disqualified from contesting the election and prayed the court to set aside the exercise.

Other defendants are Prof. Okey Agu, Dr Okechukwu Nwafor, Prof. Dennis Aribodor (immediate past chairman), Dr. Kinsley Ubaoji.
