Tinubu reconstitutes governing councils for institutions (Full List)


President Tinubu has approved the appointment of a review list of Governing Councils and Boards of federal universities, polytechnics, and colleges of education.

The new list approved by President Tinubu was conveyed in a statement by the Permanent Secretary, General Services Office, Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Nnamdi Maurice Mbaeri, and made available to newsmen in Abuja.

Recall that the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, rejected the previous 555-man governing council, saying the list does not meet the union’s demands for the reinstatement of previously dissolved boards.

ASUU president, Emmanuel Osodeke said that the council was illegally dissolved before the expiration of their tenure.
