President Bola Tinubu has ordered a review of the list of the chairpersons and members of the governing councils of Nigeria’s tertiary institutions as recently released by the Federal Ministry of Education (FME).

The directive was contained in a statement issued by Mr Tinubu’s Special Adviser on Information and Strategy, Bayo Onanuga, following the controversy that trailed the composition of the list.

The statement reads in part: “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.

STATE HOUSE PRESS STATEMENT 

PRESIDENT TINUBU DIRECTS COMPREHENSIVE REVIEW OF GOVERNING BOARDS OF TERTIARY INSTITUTIONS 

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. 

The Federal 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 will take place on 31 May. 

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.

The President, in directing a complete review of the list of the members of the governing councils, acknowledges the feedback across the country. 

President Tinubu 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 every part of the country is adequately represented. 

Bayo Onanuga 

Special Adviser to the President on Information and Strategy
