President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has disclosed that his administration is working towards the introduction of the policy that will grant full autonomy to universities.

Tinubu, represented by the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Abubakar Momoh, made the disclosure in Benin at the weekend during the 48th convocation of the University of Benin, Edo State.

He said he was convinced that university autonomy would enhance the quality of university education.

“University autonomy transfers the responsibility performance directly to the individual institution. This administration believes that this is the right step in the right direction,” he said.

According to him, he is committed to repositioning tertiary institutions and the education sector for excellent service delivery.

“Our administration is poised to change the narrative of higher education for the better and to place the institution of higher learning on a pedestal that would enable them to compete with their counterparts across the world,” he said.

The Edo State governor, Godwin Obaseki, assured that the institution’s first-class graduates of Edo origin would be offered automatic employment in the state’s civil and public service.
