This decision comes after ASUU had threatened to embark on a strike action over the government’s previous failure to reconstitute the governing councils of public universities. ASUU had given the government a two-week ultimatum to rectify the issue.

According to a circular signed by the Permanent Secretary of the Federal Ministry of Education, Mrs. Didi Walson-Jack, the appointed Chairpersons and members will be officially inaugurated and attend a retreat on Thursday, May 30th, and Friday, May 31st, 2024, at the National Universities Commission in Abuja.

This development is seen as a significant step by the Federal Government to address the concerns raised by ASUU and to facilitate the smooth functioning of the country’s tertiary education system.
