The Federal Government, through the Senior Special Assistant to the Minister of Education, Dauda Abdulramid on Wednesday clarified it’s stand as concerning the President’s statement as regards the 13 sacked Vice Chancellors and the dissolution of the governing councils of universities.
Clarifying the Federal Government’s stand, the Minister of Education’s Aide while speaking to a news agency, explained that the President in his speech did not outrightly mean reabsorption of the sacked Vice Chancellors adding that his decision to sack the head of universities remained so.
His words: “He did not say he had reversed the sack, he only apologised. Once the government takes a decision, it stands by it. Maybe, subsequently, they will take caution. But that does not mean he clearly stated that the sacked vice-chancellors should be recalled,” he cleared.
