Metro Buhari Apologises For Dissolving Jonathan's Universities’ Governing Councils



President Muhammadu Buhari has apologised for dissolving governing councils of universities along with the boards of parastatal agencies, saying he never knew there was an Act governing the establishment of the university's council..

Buhari tendered the apology during the National Executive Council meeting of the All Progressives Congress in Abuja last Thursday.

He said: ”We gave a blanket order which we had to rescind when we said all boards are suspended or dissolved".

”We had to go back and lick our vomit in terms of universities councils because we found out that according to their laws, they cannot choose vice chancellors unless the councils sit and interview candidates who want to be VCs.

”So, there is nothing wrong in saying sorry and going back on your decision. So, we said sorry and allow all the universities to continue with their councils.

“So, please, try to bear with us as we reflect on where we found ourselves.”
