Take Off of Universities Approved by Buhari to be Delayed

Date:

The Tinubu led administration announced that operations of the newly approved 37 universities by the past administration will be delayed.

Just a few days before the handover date, the Muhammadu Buhari led administration approved the licensing of 37 new universities in the country. The Minister of Education, Tahir Mamman revealed this after a meeting with President Bola Tinubu in Abuja.

He said the delay in take off was in recognition of the funding needed for effective and efficient educational programmes for these universities.

“A number of these new universities were approved by the past administration in its twilight. After much consideration, President Tinubu felt their take off should be staggered. It’s not that the universities will be scrapped but that they would be looked at in terms of their areas of strength and advantages to the students.

“The focus of education of the new administration will be on the skills that such institutions would impact on the youths. We desire a university where students can graduate with skills that are not only beneficial to them but to the economic growth of the nation,” he said.

The Minister also said that the government was equally looking at the challenges of not being able to access the Universal Basic Education Commission, UBEC, funds that states are facing.
