By Ikenga Chronicles August 3, 2016

President Muhammadu Buhari, has approved the appointment of 17 new Chief Executives, for Parastatals and Agencies, under the Federal Ministry of Education.

The appointment is with effect from August 1, 2016.

While some of the appointments amounted to the sack of the former CEOs, some others, like the National Universities Commission, had theirs replaced, after the tenure of office of the incumbent.

Those appointed are:

National Universities Commission – Prof. Abubakar Adamu Rasheed

Nigerian Institute for Education Planning and Administration – Prof. Lilian Salami

Universal Basic Education – Dr. Hameed Bobboyi

National library of Nigeria – Prof Lanre Aina

National Examinations Council – Prof. Charles Uwakwe

National Commission for Mass Literacy, Adult and Non-Formal education – Prof. Abba Aladu

Nomadic education Commission – Prof. Bashir Usman

National Business and technical Examinations Board – Prof. Isioma Isiugo-Abanihe

Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria – Prof. Sunday Josiah Ajiboye

Computer Registration Council of Nigeria – Afolabi Aderinto

National Commission for Colleges of Education – Prof. Bappah Aliyu

National Institute of Nigerian Languages – Prof. Chinyere Ohiri-Aniche

Librarian Registration Counil of Nigeria – Prof Michael Afolabi

National Teachers Institute – Prof Garba Dahuwa Azare

Similarly, President Buhari has also approved that the following Chief Executives, to be retained in their respective agencies:

Nigeria Educational Research and Development Council – Prof. Samaila Junaidu

Nigerian French Language Village – Prof Rauuf Adebisi

National board for technical education – Dr. Mas’ud Kazaure

National Arabic language Village – Prof. Muhammad Mu’az.

The new appointees, are expected to report at the office of the Education Minister, on Tuesday, August 2, 2016, by 12:00 noon for inauguration.

Presently, there are strong indications that the reason why ‎Ojerinde, the former Jamb Registrar, was affected, despite his brilliant performance, may not be unconnected with the withdrawal of the admission list sent to the Universities and other Tertiary institutions on Sunday.

Ojerinde, was reported to have ‎ran into trouble with the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, following the way he handled the ongoing 2016 admission into universities and other tertiary institutions.

Ojerinde, had on Sunday, withdrawn the list of recommended candidates for admission, earlier sent to universities and other tertiary institutions, which according to political analysts ,was a huge embarrassment to the President’s image of integrity, as some Nigerians began to suspect fraud.
