Tinubu directs review of governing boards of tertiary institutions

President Bola Tinubu has directed a comprehensive review of the newly announced governing boards of tertiary institutions.

On May 18, the federal ministry of education announced the appointments of 500 persons to serve as pro-chancellors and members of the governing councils of public tertiary institutions across the country.

In a statement on Thursday, Bayo Onanuga, special adviser on information and strategy, said the president directed a review due to criticisms that the appointments did not reflect federal character.

“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,” Onanuga said.

“In directing a complete review of the list of members, President Tinubu 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.”
