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.

 

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.
