Miyetti Allah Speaks Again
In order to distance itself with killer herdsmen who may not even be Nigerians, the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders’ Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) has called on the federal government to prevent the migration of some herds through legal means.
MACBAN said one of the ways the government can achieve this by using the Economic Community of West African State (ECOWAS) transhumance certificate protocol, The Nation reports.
The herders associations came to this resolve in a meeting with its chairman, Board of Trustees, Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar III, held in Abuja on Thursday, February 4.
ASUU Reacts Again
Members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) have faulted the federal government’s approval of new private institutions in Nigeria, saying existing ones should be expanded instead.
The federal executive council (FEC) had earlier approved 20 new private varsities, bringing the number of privately-owned tertiary institutions to 99. This followed after a number of polytechnics were similarly created.
During an interview with NAN in Benin, stakeholders claimed nothing justifies the approval when existing varsities were “neither adequately funded nor properly monitored” to ensure compliance with the appropriate guidelines.
