The presidential visitation panel to the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN) has called on the varsity to take advantage of the initiative by submitting their memoranda and actively participating in the exercise.


The federal government had in April inaugurated the visitation panels for all federal tertiary institutions across the country.

Adamu Adamu, minister of education, who announced the development, had mandated the panels to submit their reports covering 2011 to 2015 and 2016 to 2020 within 60 days.

In a statement sent to TheCable Lifestyle on Saturday, Gambo Laraba Abdullahi, chairman of the panel to UNN, said the visitation is imperative to address the challenges facing the insitution.


The former vice-chancellor of the University of Abuja (UniAbuja) urged all relevant stakeholders in the institution to play their parts in ensuring that the objectives of the exercise are achieved.

According to the statement signed by Bukola Olatunji, the panel’s secretary, the visitation team would review the performance of the institution and advise the federal government in the areas of governance and academic standards.

It added that others areas to be reviewed by the panel include “quality assurance, management of finances, relationships between management, staff and students as well as conditions of physical infrastructure and instructional facilities.”


Other members of the UNN panel are:
Prekeyi Tawari-Fufeyin, Jimoh Ayinla Bankole, Danladi Slim Matawal, Osy Ezechukwunyere Nwebo, and Abdul Ibrahim Radda.
