Tinubu directs comprehensive review of governing boards of tertiary institutes

President Bola Tinubu has directed a total and comprehensive review of the recently announced governing boards of tertiary institutions in Nigeria before the inauguration and retreat being planned for the nominees.

In a statement issued by Special Adviser to the President on Information and Strategy, Bayo Onanuga, he recalled that the Ministry of Education recently released names of nominees for chairmen, pro-chancellors, and members of the boards and councils of universities, polytechnics, and colleges of education. It also announced that the inauguration and retreat for the nominees would take place on May 31.

However, public reactions showed that the nominations did not reflect the federal character of the country, as some states got just one nomination, while some others got many.

In directing a complete review of the list of members, President Tinubu acknowledged the feedback across the country.

The President is committed to ensuring strict compliance with the principle of federal character as entrenched in the constitution.

The review will also take into consideration, national spread and ensure that every part of the country is adequately represented.
