Communications minister, Adebayo Shittu, may not be in happy mood as the Federal Executive Council, FEC, has rejected the proposed ICT University scheduled to commence operations last month.
According to Daily Trust, FEC unanimously rejected the minister’s memo on the establishment of the tertiary institution.
Shittu had, while receiving the report of 31-member committee on the proposed ICT University in July, said the specialised institution would take off in Abuja in September.
The officials who spoke with Daily Trust in Abuja said the council gave lack of funds as one of the reasons for rejecting it.
The FEC members said the Digital Bridge Institute, the training arm of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) is sufficiently providing tertiary training in ICT.
