“The visitation panel would look into the financial management of the institutions, including statutory allocations and the internally generated funds for the period under review.

"The visitation panel would also determine whether all application of funds were in compliance with procurement regulations.

“I wish to therefore appeal to the management of all Nigerian universities to ensure best practices in the conduct of the affairs of the institutions.

"I wish to also commend the Ahmadu Bello University for being outstanding in the maintenance of federal character in the composition of its staff and students."
