Bisi Akande, Olanipekun Make List As FG Unveils Governing Council Chairmen, Members Of Tertiary Institutions

June 15, (THEWILL)- President Bola Tinubu has appointed a former governor of Osun State and pioneer chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bisi Akande, as the chairman of the Governing Council of the University of Ibadan (UI), Oyo State.
Akande made the list among others, as the Federal Government released the fresh list of the chairmen and members of the governing councils of federal universities, polytechnics, and colleges of education in the country, on Friday.
A renowned lawyer and Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Wole Olanipekun, was appointed to lead the University of Lagos (UNILAG); a former Governor of Bauchi State, Isa Yuguda, will chair the governing council of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) and a former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Yayale Ahmed, Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria (ABU).
A former senator, Joy Emordi, was also appointed, to chair the council of the Alvan Ikoku Federal University of Education, Owerri, Imo State.
The new list approved by President Tinubu comprises five names each for 51 universities, 35 polytechnics and 22 colleges of education.
Permanent Secretary, General Services Office, Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Nnamdi Maurice Mbaeri, disclosed this in a statement on Friday.
‚ÄúPresident 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.
THEWILL recalls that the list of members of the reconstituted governing councils, which was released by the Federal Ministry of Education, was withdrawn, following a directive by the President to undertake a thorough review of the nominees.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.
