President Tinubu has made massive appointments to avert the pending ASUU and ASUP strike.

 

NaijaOnPoint Nigeria reports that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has approved the appointment of a reviewed list of Governing Councils and Boards of federal universities, polytechnics, and colleges of education.

 

This Nigeria news platform recalls that ASUU had on May 14 issued President Bola Tinubu a two-week ultimatum to reinstate the dissolved governing councils of Nigerian universities.

 

Since Mr Tinubu dissolved the universities in June, they have operated without governing councils for close to a year. The dissolution affected all public institutions, including polytechnics and colleges of education.

 

In a statement signed by the union’s president, Emmanuel Osodeke, a professor of soil science, ASUU described the dissolution as illegal and contrary to the Universities Miscellaneous Act.

 

 

The union said the “illegal dissolution” has paved the way for illegalities in the Nigerian university system.

 

Therefore, ASUU asked Mr Tinubu to reinstate those whose tenure had yet to elapse and reconstitute those whose tenure had elapsed.

 

NaijaOnPoint Nigeria reports that pending the ASUU deadline, President Tinubu in a statement on Friday by the Permanent Secretary, General Services, Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Nnamdi Mbaeri, approved the appointment of a reviewed list of Governing Councils and Boards of federal universities, polytechnics, and colleges of education.

He noted that approval was given for the effective management of Nigerian tertiary institutions across the country.

 

“President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has approved the reconstitution of the governing councils and boards of federal universities, polytechnics, and colleges of education for the effective management of Nigerian tertiary institutions across the country,” the statement said.

 

Recall that the earlier list of members of the reconstituted governing councils, which was released by the Federal Ministry of Education, was withdrawn following a directive by the President to undertake a thorough review of the nominees.

 

The leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and some other stakeholders had faulted the list over alleged lopsidedness, among other considerations.
