“The Minister of Communications, Barrister Adebayo Shittu has received in his Office the report of the Committee on ICT University Implementation Committee with thanks, adding that the report would be studied and that within three weeks, a MEMO would be raised for the approval of the Federal Executive Council (FEC)
He added that as soon as FEC gives approval, the University would take off by September, 2017 and he would recommend to the FEC some of the committee members to be considered as Foundation Staff of the Proposed University, adding that recommendation would also be sent to the FEC to appreciate members of the Committee by issuing letters of recognition for their contribution.” – Federal Ministry of information and Culture reporting on its website, July 19, 2017.
IMAGINE the mindset of people planning a University and the kind of statements sneaking out of their mouths! The report excerpted above was published by a Government Agency, not social media.
Tell me which private sector mind would invest in a project that is so conceived!
It is understood that the MEMO was recently put where it belonged by the Federal Executive Council two days ago. Good riddance, if you ask me.
