ghana's education system is not better than nigerias.

Those who couldn't get into nigerian schools due to jamb/post jamb and waec wahala always go to ghana or benin republic.

They should scrap jamb and let schools chose their candidates. Plus, they nEed to build more schools instead of churches and mosques or wasting good money to send some people to mecca and jerusalem.

Lol, guy stop consoling yourself with these rhethorics about those who couldn't get what what what...
Don't you see that the education system in Nigeria is as sick as the current political system?
Nigerians are ready to spend money even in their own country in order to get quality education, but the system is just not working as we all expect. All our politicians keep their kids in the US, UK, e.t.c because they know the kind of education system at home.
Our president is treating himself in the UK and someone will come online to say bla bla bla bla bla about being a patriotic Nigerian.
The earlier the people come to their senses and realize that our politicians are not working in the interest of the masses, the better for us all.

This country has never worked.

For the past fifty years

For God's sake, let divide this country

Is not working period.

angry Breaking the country might not solve the existing problem, it will rather make it worse. The greedy folks among us will still claim superiority when the country is divided. What we should strive for is how to make Nigerias institutions work effectively.

Try to read and comprehend before you go on a long rant.

No one said nigerian educational system is perfect or great but ghanaians own is not better compared to ours.

Son of politicians or the rich won't send their children to nigerian or ghananian schools because both country's educational system is not up to standard.

They prefer us and uk like you mentioned.

Its mostly those who are struggling with admissions in nigeria that rush to ghana or benin republic for education not because ghanaians schools are better than nigerian own.

Lol, one love brother! In time past, I use to think that those that are struggling with admissions are the ones who end up going outside of the country, it was later that I realised that students who have attended our public institutions most times exceeded their required time in school, they advice their younger ones to look elsewhere. I have been a victim of such delays and I am sure some students are still going through same.
The idea is this, we have been brainwashed to think the difficult way is the best way, that is not correct. I believe Nigeria education system needs a reform.

A former Minister of Youth Development, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, has said that Nigerians spend N300bn annually in Ghana and an estimated N162bn annually in the United Kingdom on foreign  tertiary education.

Abdullahi, who is also a former Minister of Sports, spoke in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital, on Friday on the sidelines of a summit of the Nigerian Union of Teachers.

He said the British Council had reported that the number of Nigerian students studying abroad had increased by 75 per cent since 2002, with a current estimate of about 19,000.

Abdullahi said, “In the middle of this crisis, government interventions over the years have been business as usual at  best, and misguided at worst; indicating either a woeful lack of understanding of the problem or its sheer inability to apply the right measures of solution to bring about the desired turnaround.’’

The ex-minister stated that funding was about the most important issue in any conversation about education in Nigeria. He added that while government had argued over the years that it could not effectively fund education, the argument had become even more pertinent now that Nigeria is suffering from economic recession.

Abdullahi said, “Available statistics show that between 2000 and 2012, an estimated N800bn might have gone to the states in UBEC intervention alone. That is an average of N22bn to each of the states and the Federal Capital Territory.

“If we add other direct expenditure by the various state governments, this figure could go up to trillions of naira. Yet, evidence abound that the majority of our children completing basic education from our schools have not achieved the required standards in basic cognitive skills.”

Ghanaian leaders are forward thinkers. They think about the future.

You can earn a quality online Bachelors of engineering degree from the best Ghanaian Universities.

They make their educational system flexible for all but you as a foreigner pays the cost.

You can run an online 2yrs HND Top-Up degree program from Nigeria and then travel to Ghana for your final exams.

They also make education easy for their citizens.

The best university in Nigeria cannot be compared to that in Ghana.

Our educational system will become better if they all go online and offer professional courses.

With the increase in family demand, nobody wants to go back to school at the detriment of your job.

All big universities in Nigeria should be compelled to go online with better courses.

Our Universities run DLI programs on useless courses that will never help anyone.

I think the minster of education and our professors are intentionally killing the educational system.

I am even running a sound engineering program in Ghana at the moment but very flexible and from the comfort of my home.

In Nigeria, you must go back and write School cert if you happen to have interest in education at an advance age.

In some other countries, they give concession and just give you admission based on few test as a matured student.

Let the Nigerian government continue ....

ofcourse serious reform.

Honestly, if you ask those going to ghana to chose (let's say between one of the prestigious schools in nigeria like UI, unliag, UNN, OAU etc. Most of them would rather chose one of them than go to ghana.


In another 100 years, no matter the reform or anything we do, nigerian schools cannot come close to standard american or british schools politicians send their kids too.
E.g havard and them ivy league schools or oxford, cambridge.


That's why I said in my initial post that we need build more school and fix the ones we already have to accommodate more students due to our population instead of spending money on frivolous things like church and mosques or pilgrimage.
And scrap jamb wahala, let school pick their student based on their high school records like most standard schools do.

That will put an end to admission wahala.

The education system in Nigeria is dying a natural death. The children of the masses are still the ones giving life to our universities.

You are right on the aspect of proliferation of religious ideologies at the expense of high tech laboratories in our institutions.
Jamb is another system built to bring unnecessary hardship to Nigerians.

Re: Nigerians Spend N300bn On Education In Ghana Annually by Nobody: 10:00am On Jun 30, 2017
This is why we must allow our private higher education sector thrive. There is no reason we should spend such money if our country has enough good private universities. Anyway this should be a rethink for those who think private universities are too expensive. Nigerians most likely pay more in Ghana.

It's not a lie.

Unfortunately, Ghana's educational system is seemingly better than ours considering several factors that come into play.

No strike, no Fulani herdsmen invading the compounds and ransacking classes.

Probably, their lecturers don't even sort like ours do.
It is not only public universities that are in Nigeria.

What has building of churches as expressed as "proliferation of religious ideologies" got to do with Higher education. Its not as if the govt builds churches. Churches are built by private individuals with congregational finance. Also, right now there are as more Church universities as there are federal ones. So Churches always build universities. It seems Nigerians are always seeking to criticize the Church. If they build people would say it is expensive, if it is without quality but cheap, ppl would say who sent them. If they don't build at all ppl would say they are useless.
