The Federation of Bangladesh University Teachers’ Association (FBUTA) on Friday protested against the appointment of a former additional secretary of the government as a treasurer of Bangamata Sheikh Fojilatunnesa Mujib Science and Technology University (BSFMSTU) in Jamalpur.

They said that in the place of a professor the government has appointed a nonacademic and former bureaucrat Abdul Mannan in one of the top posts of the university.

In the joint statement signed by acting president of the association Dr Farida Yeasmin Bari and secretary general Prof Nizamul Hoque Bhuiyan said they are “surprised, “aggrieved” and “angry” at the appointment by the government.

They demanded immediate cancellation of the appointment.

They urged the government to fill the important administrative vacant posts including the vice-chancellor and treasures of many universities to accelerate the education and research of the country.
