The newly elected University of Nigeria Council members were among the many that were inaugurated by the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, on May 9.
Mr. Adamu while inaugurating the Council members said the inauguration is coming on the heels of the completion of the tenure of the immediate past governing councils who were appointed in April, 2013. According to him, as part of their responsibilities the governing councils are charged with the responsibilities of approving the financial guidelines of the universities which they are serving on; determining the terms and conditions of appointment of the vice chancellors and principal officers of the universities as well as annually reviewing the universities’ budget to monitor their performance and assess the overall impact of their implementation, among others.
The newly inaugurated council members are to serve for four years (2017-2021). What this implies is that they shall be overseeing the appointment of the next VC by the time the tenure of the current VC is due in 2019.
