Jega pledges good panels’ reports to reposition tertiary education
Former Chairman, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Attahiru Jega, has promised to work with other chairmen of the visitation panels to develop good reports that will reposition the country’s tertiary institutions.
While speaking on behalf of the other chairmen at the inaugural ceremony of 38 federal universities and four inter-university centres in Abuja yesterday, Jega called for consistency in the constitution of visitation panels to federal tertiary institutions.
He urged the Federal Government to also implement recommendations of the panels.
“We shall do our best and produce excellent reports, which we hope the government will put to good use to reposition the country.
“No doubt, a lot of challenge exists in the institutions and the President, Muhammadu Buhari, has offered opportunity for careful review of the nature of the challenges on which basis recommendations will be made to address them,” he said.
Earlier, the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, while inaugurating the panels as directed by the President, charged them to evaluate the policies and laws of the specific institutions.
Adamu, represented by the Permanent Secretary of the ministry, Sonny Echono, urged the panels to adhere to the terms of reference for efficiency in the institutions.
