The Ambrose Alli University (AAU) Ekpoma chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has taken the Edo State Government to court over the Special Intervention Powers Provisions Law 2021, which gave the governor extra-ordinary powers in the direct management of the institution’s affairs.

The lawsuit was filed in the State High Court of Ekpoma.

ASUU is asking the court to rule on the legitimacy of the change to the Ambrose Alli University (AAU) Laws–Special Intervention Powers Provisions Law 2021 and the resulting Special Intervention Team (SIT), which was formed to take over the Governing Council’s full powers.

The Union argued in the lawsuit that the law granting the State Governor extra-ordinary powers in the direct management of the institution’s affairs, among other things, was enacted with complete disregard for the law’s devastating effects on university autonomy, long-established traditions, ethos, and institutional organs.

The matter, which was initially heard on Tuesday, December 14, 2021, has been rescheduled for a hearing on March 8, 2022.
