10 Nov FG approves setting up of visitation panels for universities
The Federal Government has approved the constitution of visitation panels to oversee the activities of all federal universities in the country.
The Executive Secretary of National Universities Commission (NUC), Abubakar Rasheed, made this known in Abuja on Monday during the 2nd Quadrennial National Delegates Conference of Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU).
The NUC boss said the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, had secured the approval of President Muhammadu Buhari to dispatch visitation panels to all public universities in the country.
He said the constitution of the visitation panels was in line with the laws that stipulate visitation of public universities once in every five years.
According to him, the respective panels, which will soon be inaugurated, are expected to tour the universities and bring back a 10-year report, in two separate batches of five years each.
“The report will cover a period between 2011 and 2015 and from 2016 to 2020,” he said.
