The Federal Government has approved the constitution of new Governing Council for Nigerian Tertiary institutions and has appointed Professor Aminu Salihu Mikailu as the Pro-Chancellor and Chairman for the University of Ilorin.

Checks by ROYAL NEWS revealed that A.S. Mikailu is a Professor of Management Accounting and Finance at the Usmanu Danfodiyo University, Sokoto, Sokoto state.

It will be recalled that ROYAL NEWS reported on Wednesday that the Acting Executive Secretary of the National Universities Commission (NUC), Chris Maiyaki, hinted that the Federal Government is working assiduously to reconstitute the governing councils of the 61 federal universities as soon as possible.

Maiyaki spoke while reacting to the two-week ultimatum issued by members of Academic Staff Union Universities (ASUU) for the government to reconstitute the governing councils earlier dissolved by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu several months ago.

He further said government was working thoroughly on the list of nominees to ensure that only the best are engaged to complement the efforts of government in repositioning university education in the country.
