The Media Executive said the policy would affect University system negatively, noting that the Institutions are using their IGR to augment shortfalls and maintain laboratory facilities as well as other financial obligations.

He revealed that University Management uses the IGR to pay Adhoc staff who are providing support at different levels.

Feelers  from Aso Rock Villa indicates that President Tinubu has canceled 40% IGR deduction from federal universities after widespread condemnation of the policy.
