According to Malam Ibrahim Shekarau, the federal government will not interfere with operations of governing councils of such institutions but will play its oversight role and duties.
Malam Ibrahim Shekarau also made mention that the Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) of the institutions would be audited and looked into in their deliberations.
