President Buhari Names Saraki's Sister Otuoke Varsity Council Chairman

Gbemisola Saraki
President Muhammadu Buhari has named the younger sister of the Senate President, Gbemishola Saraki, as the Chairman Governing Council of Federal University, Otuoke, Bayelsa State, among other appointees.

Adamu said the inauguration of the Councils marked another milestone in President Muhammadu Buhari administration's effort to turn around the fortunes of Nigeria's tertiary education institutions by appointing credible men and women into their councils.

He added that the current administration believes that universities were critical in the effort to achieve national economic prosperity through the provision of relevant skilled human capital and policy research outcomes.

He urged the councils to supervise and monitor the effective entrenchment of the committee system and ensure plurality in decision-making process.

''As governing councils, you must be bold, courageous and responsive in ways that provide the kind of leadership that supports the growth and development of universities and make them globally competitive and attractive.

''In doing all these, you must ensure that the universities' planning and growth are in consonance with all National Universities Commission(NUC) guidelines, especially, with regards to the issues of Academic Briefs and the development of appropriate master plans.

''I would like to remind you that governance and management are two distinct responsibilities in the university system. ''On the hand, councils will set the policies that define the direction and then support the managements in their implementation of the policies," he said.

He urged the councils to supervise and monitor the effective entrenchment of the committee system and ensure plurality in decision-making process.
