Supervising Minister of Education Nyesom Wike, while presenting the letters at a meeting with vice chancellors in Abuja, said the Federal Government was committed to improving university education.
The exercise will begin with the North central Zone at the Federal College of Agriculture, Makurdi, he said. Wike said the Southeast would meet at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, on March 11, while University of Port Harcourt would host the South-south on March 10. The minister added that the Ahmadu Bello University would host the Northwest while the Southwest would converge on University of Ibadan.
He urged the universities not to see the exercise as an audit of their financial expenditure but a sensitisation of what they were doing to revitalise education. Wike said the events would be transmitted live on the media for the public to know what investments the government was making in the sector and what the schools have on ground.
