The FG has ambitious ambitions to give universities complete independence

.

The Federal Government is considering restoring the Policy of University Full Autonomy in an effort to encourage development and reduce external obstructions, as indicated by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

The government’s decision reflects its idea that freedom gives universities the freedom to progress at their own pace.

At the weekend’s 48th convocation ceremony for the University of Benin, Tinubu spoke through the Minister of Niger Delta Development, Engineer Abubakar Momoh, to voice his support for the proposed approach.

.

Instead of the current state of uncertainty, “university autonomy will no doubt, transfer the responsibility of performance directly to the individual institutions,” he stated.

In his remarks, the President underlined university employees’ worries over unpaid salaries.

He announced a four-month wage payment for all university staff to relieve the problem.

In addition, Tinubu promised that the government will continue its efforts to improve university conditions by funding the construction of essential facilities such lecture halls, student dorms, administrative offices, and learning resources.

The Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund) built these amenities to reward hardworking faculty and students.

During his campaign, Nigerian politician Bola Tinubu made the following pledge: “As a responsible government, we would continue to devote tangible resources to education and formulate sustainable policies that would outlive this administration.”

“Our universities have the multifaceted duty of assisting in the broadening of horizons by means of research and technological advances, the dissemination of appropriate skills, and a more entrepreneurial outlook.”
