The federal government has expressed concern over the low quality of research emanating from the nation’s institutions.

The Minister of Education, Professor Mamman Tahir, spoke on Wednesday after the federal cabinet meeting at the State House, Abuja.

He regretted that the institutions were not meeting up with the needs of the country and advancing the nation’s development.

He said: “The council made some observations on research output from research institutes across the country and expressed concern about the institutes not living up to relevant and valid proper research that meets the requirement of Nigeria or that takes the country to the level of development and that is the major role of research institutes in developing countries.

“The council wants to see our tertiary institutions play those roles while ensuring there is sufficient funding for those activities.”

He said government will now hold the management of public higher institutions accountable for the prudent administration of its financial resources and strict compliance with establishing laws and regulations setting up the institutions.

He explained that the council had approved a note presented in December 2023 as regards the pulling out of the public higher institutions from the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPS), and approval of recruitment waivers to the public institutions, thereby providing opportunities for the institutions to manage their affairs.

Mamman noted that the council stressed the need to remind the public tertiary institutions of their obligations under various laws setting up the schools

He added that the FEC has resolved to hold account managers of the institutions responsible over any glitch of regulations.
