FG Approves Four New Private Universities In Ogun, Oyo, Osun, Kaduna by adebuk17: 9:53pm On Jan 09
The Federal Executive Council on Wednesday in Abuja approved the establishment of four new private universities in Kaduna, Oyo, Ogun and Osun States.

The Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, confirmed this when he briefed State House correspondents at the end of the first meeting of the council in 2019.

The meeting was presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari.

According to the minister, the new universities are Greenfield University Kaduna, Dominion University, Ibadan, Trinity University, Laloko in Ogun and Westland University in Iwo, Osun.

“All the four have satisfied the criteria for the establishment of universities.

“They have submitted their academic briefs, their master plans and evidence of facilities after visitation by the National Universities Commission; they have satisfied all those requirements and they are being granted licences,’’ he added.

The Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, who also addressed the correspondents, said the Council approved a National Public Building Maintenance Policy and Framework.

He said the new policy, would institutionalise a maintenance culture in the country, saying that some of the benefits of the policy would provide an inventory of government assets, and job opportunities for Nigerians.

“We have trained artisans at different levels but we have not created an economy for them to go and express themselves – Tilers, Bricklayers, Plumbers, landscapers, fitters etc.

“When they leave training schools what do they do? They go and ride tricycles where there is no training school because there is an economy in tricycles – this is the answer.

“So, we have started with a pilot (scheme) to demonstrate to Council that this will work.

“Some of the things that this will bring include an inventory of all assets that government owns.

“It gives us an assessment of the conditions and value, then, it gives us a maintenance framework about what needs to be done after assessments and then a maintenance procurement manual.

"Tribalism & religious extremism are the incubators that breed corruption in most African nations, so in fighting corruption in Africa, African leaders must first do away with tribalism, ethnicism and religious bigotry which are greatest forms of corruption"

"Nigerian President Buhari has never fought corruption, Buhari has been busy fighting political opponents and those he does not like; using federal and state resources and security apparatus, that is not fighting corruption, that is political witch-hunting and every sane citizen of every nation must rise up against Presidents using country's resources and security apparatus to silence opposition in the name of fighting corruption.

If Buhari fought corruption truly, even corrupt Nigerians themselves will hail and respect him, but what Buhari is currently doing is setting bad precedents for incoming Nigerian Presidents to capitalize on

It is a nice and positive thing to establish universities, however, not when the existing ones are dilapidated, with few classes, not research-oriented and can't compete with it's counterpart all over the world. The lecturers are already on strike, so who teaches there. First sort out the basic problems before adding to it....

More universities coming up without anything in place for the graduates. Thousands graduating every year without job. I wonder what next ten years will look like. They preach entrepreneurship while they put their children in the offices. Yeye people.
