“We the Nigerian students, therefore, commend President Bola Tinubu for his love and concern about the transformation of academic institutions through this sound appointment of incorruptible team of thoroughbred administrators to help fasten the development in our ivory towers after the recent introduction of student loan for Nigerian students”.

They stressed that the President by the appointment of about two hundred academicians with about 100 professors/PhD holders into the university, polytechnic and colleges of education councils along with other technocrats and politicians appointed brought a renewed hope to the development agitations of Nigerian students unlike past presidents appointments that have few academicians in the council.
