The affected three tertiary institutions are College of Education, Akwanga, College of Agriculture, Lafia and Nasarawa state Polytechnic, also in Lafia.
The five man panel for College of Education Akwanga, disclosed that it has so far received two memorandum from the public.
The secretary of the panel Warai Ezekiel Auta, who disclosed this to journalist yesterday at the conference hall of the College, said his committee will carry out its work without fear or favour.
While receiving the committee members, the provost of the institution Dr Rebecca Isaac Umaru, assured the committee of the management’s cooperation to enable it carry out its assignment effectively.
The committee was taken round various projects such as Clinic, Library, ICT centre, works department, Convocation square, Hostels, demonstration school, provost guest house and others.
Meanwhile the investigation panel headed by Mrs Fati Sabo, for the Nasarawa State Polytechnic Lafia, has swung into action Monday.

The state chairman of the ASUP who raised the alarm on Monday during an interview with journalist in Lafia, said “We appreciate Governor Al-makura, for constituting a panel to investigate the activities of the Nasarawa state polytechnic since 2014, however we have written to the governor to step down one of the members of the panel.
“Dr. Dalhatu Yusua, a member of the panel has some questions to answer as a desk officer with TETFUND in Nasarawa polytechnic. He can serve as panel member to other schools but not in the institution where his office is heavily indicted” he said.
A source who begged for anonymity told LEADERSHIP that Dr DalhatuYusua, has since been removed from the committee by the state government.
