Speaking during a world press conference in Abuja, yesterday, the national president, NANS, comrade Tijani Shehu stated that they are dismayed by the fact that the Minister of Education  is yet to do the needful by reinstating the sacked Vice Chancellors.

Comrade Shehu said: ‘’The Minister has chosen to give diverse counter-interpretations to Mr. President’s apology just to soothe his whims and ego. Whereas the President categorically stated that there are specifically spelt out roles for which the Governing Councils are meant to perform their roles on employment and retirement.’’

It would be recalled that President Buhari apologised for dissolving the governing councils of universities along with the boards of parastatal agencies.

President Buhari who offered the apology during the National Executive Council meeting of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abuja said the decision was regretted.
