Well, I strongly believe that one of the greatest challenge in Nigeria System of education,especially in the Technology world is lack of conducive environment. I always make an advocacy that, IT innovation parks should be sighted at least in each geopolitical zone. It’s well known that if you train accounting students, you build financial institutions, if you train medical personnel’s you build medical facilities and training centres , then if we see the importance of IT in Nigeria there should be need for Innovation Centres, China of today started from somewhere and Nigeria Can start from somewhere. Let there be an innovation Centre, some technologies that is new to us today are already outdated in some countries, because there’s is no supportive research centres. The curriculum need serious attention, majority of the higher institutions are still offering some “outdated” courses and they have refused to upgrade. It’s hard for you to see a computer science graduate from especially public institution with a specialization, either in Digital Marketing, Networks, Hardware, Graphics, software engineering, etc. and every academic session over 10,000 (Ten thousand) Computer Science Students graduates from one higher institution or the other, the big question remains. Which company/firms are ready to absorb these graduates?, which innovation center in Nigeria can breed this fresh graduates?. Imagine what this country would turn to be if only 1/10 of these fresh graduates are actually useful to the IT industry. This country will build a silicon valley soon.




Well, it’s a big mystery, but the truth has to be said, there is nothing like a computer lab or research lab, talk more facilities of lab with internet connection for research work. I could remember the first time I entered a room that has a few dilapidated system was in my second year when we went for CSC 201 lecture and after that day there was nothing like a practical class again. It’s really embarrassing and I strongly believe this is also applicable to higher institutions in Nigeria. With my Position as the National President I have received lots of complaints about IT students complaining of issues of poor computer laboratories and practical courses, although we have limited intervention to this issues, but we as a body have tried to collaborate with many ICT training centres to organize very subsidised fees to up to 70% discount just to make sure that our members don’t come out of the higher institution half baked.

OP has a point

However most of the issues raised are systemic.

Even if you bring a tech wiz with his bright ideas, he'll soon get trapped in the highly political drive for "promotion" that thrives in many of our public universities.

After marking time on the same grade for a few years, our poor revolutionary will realize that the game isn't really all about helping people learn, but about whose good books to be in, and which behinds to kiss...

So he falls in line.

And the story goes on. Sad.

Sometimes, I wonder if attending the University was really worth it.

Graduates are littered everywhere with irrelevant knowledge.

This is true, especially those lecturers in our Universities in Igboland. All our lecturers and teachers in Igboland are terrible. Calling them half baked scholars is even a compliment.


I remember my encounter with a certain Professor Okoye in UNN. This man cannot construct a single sentence in English Language. Imagine a University Don saying ''told him that I have went''

With the very high number of Nigerians graduating with first class from top world universities, I expect things to be changing at our Universities in Nigeria. Unfortunately, the people who recruit into these unis are not serious about quality. Also, the salary of the most junior lecturer should start from about 750k a month.

No but if they teach students to be creative, innovative and proactive then we probably might see a better country.

Can you provide a reasonable reason why this should be an element of discussion at the senate?

Otherwise, i'd say you are a failed entity who has mistaken money for value.



olapluto:

To reduce brain drain of our brightest brains, and reduce corruption in the profession. Thats the equivalent salary of most lecturers worldwide.


Equivalent you say?

I'm sure you had a F in Economics. Just answer this question: is living expenses parallel?

Is living expenses in US, UK, SA, and the likes comparable with what is obtainable here in Nigeria?
