    Federal university governing councils, like everything else, mostly established for the benefit of northern elites, yet their region is the most educationally backward. Why can’t they have these people constitute a task force or technical working group to fast track education attainment across the northern region, rather than having them seat as ineffective university governing councils without any tangible achievement apart from “chopping” money?
