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''
Many Okoyes there. I know one in UNEC, very bright. He has mentored many PhD holders.

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.

You're on point. The very reason I didn't follow up on my interest in teaching in my university.
I didn't want to get trapped in the mentality I observed among my lecturers.
The students suffer in the battle for position and promotions among lecturers.

Studying Comp Sci at the Lagos State University was a complete waste of time. We were taught FORTRAN and COBOL on paper. No practical. We were taught c++ in 3 weeks and forced to buy its handout. No practical. We were taught database management with a notebook. No practical. We spent so much time learning maths and statistics.

We only used computer science lab when we were defending our photocopied project. We didn't use the computers o, we only used the environment.

Everything I know today, I paid to learn it in Niit and New Horizons. What then is the essence of studying csc in Nigeria ?

The problem isn't just the lecturers, the students are more culpable. Despite the so called outdated and archaic methods of lecturing, most students find it difficult to cope. They give attention to irrelevant issues and only remember they're students at the close of exams. I quite agree with you that our educational system needs reforms but the lackadaisical attitudes of most students should be of utmost concern.

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

Graduates are littered everywhere with irrelevant knowledge.

grin
Is good to get knowledge first . And if you are a graduate make the use of the knowledge you got in the university and start some thing on your own not looking for job .

Ah. Why this. why are you making a hasty generalization concerning their intellectual capabilities just because of the challenges they're facing.

I'm a southerner but I don't support what you've said. They've also produced great people who are recognized in their respective fields all over the world.

Please next time make your comments more enlightening instead of writing a thoughtless string of characters plagued with sarcastic, awful and derogatory remarks that spur hate and disrespect.

Just imagine. There's no difference with me and someone studying mathematics... tf I'm studying? It's computer science for f* sake.
you need to be grounded in mathematics for you to have your way in computing because programming and networking requires mathematics.

Op said it all abeg.
Imagine a computer science dept. in a University teaching FORTRAN and Qbasic. Fortran was introduced in the year 1977 and Qbasic followed few years later.
Even a lecturer opened his silly mouth to say if we are looking for true knowledge, we'd better go outside(IT schools) to get 'em because they(the lecturers) won't do that. How would a programmer still be dwelling on a programming language used and dumped over 45years ago. Young boys of 12-15 in Europe and America have created their own computer softwares, Android apps and so on while my mates are struggling with how to open Netbean or Python IDLE.
A lecturer will come to class and perform dry coding on the white board on how to 'print("Hello world!") and would still have the nerve to say he is a certified programmer.
If not for YouTube tutorial videos, I would have been left with 'zero' like my fellow students and lecturers.
I spit on our education system. I have sworn that none of my kids will school in a Federal University in Nigeria or maybe in Nigeria as whole.

Guys stop talking nonsense without facts.
What do u expect?? Education in Nigeria is almost free because the government knows that most Nigerians do not value education. You can only pay more for what you value.

I spent N8m tuition fee for just a session abroad. I went for the best in the world And I am a Nigerian lecturer now. My passion is to teach, but I cannot replicate the standard abroad because the facilities and right environment are not in place.
You all depend on the government to fix education. Even when they try to, the money is embezzled.
The politicians and law makers crack jokes for a few hours and go home with outrageous incentives but for those who help young ones discover and develop their potentials to better the society go home with nothing.

As for using old methods to teach, Be aware that the system is changing. Young lecturers with international experience are taking over. They can match any standard of teaching in the world.

So keep quiet and play your part. Nigerian lecturers are the best.. you receive the value for your money paid..!
