The former INEC boss’s appointment was among the 155 others President Tinubu approved to serve as the chairmen and members of the governing councils of tertiary institutions in the country.

Tinubu’s move was followed by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) threatening to shut down the country through industrial action over the government’s refusal to constitute governing councils in Nigerian universities.

ASUU issued a two-week ultimatum to the government on Tuesday, May 14, demanding that the government do what is needed within the stipulated period.

The National Universities Commission (NUC) has urged university lecturers to be patient with the government, stating that it is doing everything possible to constitute university councils.

On Jega’s appointment, Leadership reported that a source revealed other board members such as Dr Anthony Usoro, R.O. Kazeem, Miss Mary Nyieor Yisa, and Professor Usman Musa.

Bayo Onanuga, one of President Tinubu’s spokespersons, tweeted the full list of the university’s governing councils’ chairmen on Saturday, May 18.
