6 Reasons Not To Attend A Public University by OduntanGabriel(m): 6:33pm On Sep 09, 2014
This is a counter thread to what was written by a fellow nairalander.

Here are the 6 reasons why I attending a private university is good for you.

1)Conducive Environment : When you look at some government owned universities,you wonder if this is actually a secondary school or what? The government of nigeria doesn't really show much concerns to their schools but private university believes that a conducive environment is very essential for learning. When you go to private universities for a tour , you don't feel like leaving there, they have things in place for learning. You see student of public university overcrowded(receiving lectures through the window or standing @ the door) how do you learn in this environment,with so much heat thanks to the over population.

2)COST: Yea, I know you do be surprised I said cost. Private universities are expensive, you don't expect education to be cheap. The are expensive because they give you value for money. I leave you with the slogan which says if education is expensive try ignorance.

3)CONNECTION: No matter how rich a man is,if he doesn't have connection,he's useless. Private universities creates an avenue for you to meet the sons and daughters of the rich and powerful men in our societies. The Dangotes and otedolas have their sons ,daughters, nephew etc in this so called private universities and this can easily elevate you. Being a scholar does not guarantee you an employment opportunity in our society except you are connected. Isn't it a good thing to be dinning and winning with the crème de la crème of society? Answer me

4)SECURITY: Our public schools are not safe,not even safe for the lecturers not to talk of the students. Many student have lost their lives to this game called Cultism (even the innocent ones). Some lecturers who refuse to dance to the tune of this so called school prefects have kicked the bucket. What is the essence of making a 1st class in public universities and on your graduation day or final exam ,you get wasted. Abraham Maslow's listed 5 hierarchy of needs and SAFETY is one of it. Our Public universities are not safe for learning

5) STRIKE ACTION: OMG, why would a 4years course becomes 6years without any extra years or carry over? Strike has been one of the main problem facing the education system in nigeria. Some people entered the university @ the age of 25 with the hope of finishing a 4 years course but due to strike actions the finished at the age of 31 and couldn't go for their youth service because they are above 30years. In a private university, you know when you are graduating except the student failed some courses which lead to extra years.

6) Discipline: There is discipline in private university, you don't slap your lecturer, you don't threaten your fellow colleague. You don't run away from lecturers,you don't receive calls while having lectures, all because you want to party or flex. Remember , the main reason you are in school is too learn. Private university instill discipline on their student unlike public university.

Have you sat down to ask yourself.. The owners of these private universities.. Where did they study during their time?... You talk about connection.. Isnt that why we have so many incompetent people in places of authority.. Believe me.. If u are good at wat you do... Your brain takes u places, not connection..

And most students in public universities are the ones who cheated their way through.

At the end of their Bsc degrees, the private graduate turns out to be the better graduate. Not hating on public universities, I'm simply paying you back in your own coins, because you generalised first.

All this point doesn't change the fact that private universities are just like advanced or glorified Borden school or prison , where you lack freedom to do a lot of things all in the name of discipline.

OduntanGabriel: This is a counter thread to what was written by a fellow nairalander.

Here are the 6 reasons why I attending a private university is good for you.

Well, am sure if someone gave you automatic admission in UI ,you would grab it grin,but go on....

1)Conducive Environment : When you look at some government owned universities,you wonder if this is actually a secondary school or what? The government of nigeria doesn't really show much concerns to their schools but private university believes that a conducive environment is very essential for learning. When you go to private universities for a tour , you don't feel like leaving there, they have things in place for learning. You see student of public university overcrowded(receiving lectures through the window or standing @ the door) how do you learn in this environment,with so much heat thanks to the over population.

Back in the 1970's when the total number of university students did not exceed 90,000, and there were just six universities....govt could afford to fund all the unis and meet maintenance costs effectively. Now....they can't. because there are over 50 Govt unis, and over a million students....and the money isn't enough.

And if fees go up.....everyone is up in arms.

Govt does show concern....the problem is money ain't enough. And when ASUU tried to get more money....you Nigerians forced them to take 1/3rd of what they originally got....and that over five years.

2)COST: Yea, I know you do be surprised I said cost. Private universities are expensive, you don't expect education to be cheap. The are expensive because they give you value for money. I leave you with the slogan which says if education is expensive try ignorance.

Thank God you get it. But most Nigerians don't get it. They would rather earn degraded degree at cheap price....instead of quality degree at good price.

I went to a public uni at N2000 per annum. (later raised to N18000). And I got poor facilities.Meanwhile, some relatives of mine are going to foreign universities at high costs (and it is not as if their parents are rich)....and getting quality degree.

Now who will the blue chip company employ?....

3)CONNECTION: No matter how rich a man is,if he doesn't have connection,he's useless. Private universities creates an avenue for you to meet the sons and daughters of the rich and powerful men in our societies. The Dangotes and otedolas have their sons ,daughters, nephew etc in this so called private universities and this can easily elevate you. Being a scholar does not guarantee you an employment opportunity in our society except you are connected. Isn't it a good thing to be dinning and winning with the crème de la crème of society? Answer me

Connections are good.....but you still have to work hard too.

4)SECURITY: Our public schools are not safe,not even safe for the lecturers not to talk of the students. Many student have lost their lives to this game called Cultism (even the innocent ones). Some lecturers who refuse to dance to the tune of this so called school prefects have kicked the bucket. What is the essence of making a 1st class in public universities and on your graduation day or final exam ,you get wasted. Abraham Maslow's listed 5 hierarchy of needs and SAFETY is one of it. Our Public universities are not safe for learning

That is the fault of poor policing....due to poor funding for our police. And state police isn't going to make it better.,....because running a good police force costs billions of dollars. You want good police....pay high taxes.(Which most Nigerians will refuse to pay because.....we are poor.....so poor...).

5) STRIKE ACTION: OMG, why would a 4years course becomes 6years without any extra years or carry over? Strike has been one of the main problem facing the education system in nigeria. Some people entered the university @ the age of 25 with the hope of finishing a 4 years course but due to strike actions the finished at the age of 31 and couldn't go for their youth service because they are above 30years. In a private university, you know when you are graduating except the student failed some courses which lead to extra years.

That is because with funding for education below 10% of the budget.,...there isn't enough funds for lecturers salaries , facilities, etc. That is why Govt should either increase fees.....or they remove the fuel subsidy...and use the money to fund education well.

6) Discipline: There is discipline in private university, you don't slap your lecturer, you don't threaten your fellow colleague. You don't run away from lecturers,you don't receive calls while having lectures, all because you want to party or flex. Remember , the main reason you are in school is too learn. Private university instill discipline on their student unlike public university.

I like the discipline....but then again, uni students are adults....so softly softly.
