They keep establishing universities that keeps churning out graduates every year but the can't establish a working economy to balance it up.

-Professors cant carry out meaningful researches

-Students are being taught with outdated curriculums

- No world class research facility for students

- No condusive learning environment

- No jobs for graduates (most are on normal street hustle now)

- EFCC is fighting corruption while harbouring the father of corruption as their Boss.

- Nigeria is just on a lost cause.

I pity those people who still believe and hope for a better Nigeria. The country is DEAD

Government owned Universities don plenty for Edo State...great development.


The number of government owned higher institutions in the state is quiet impressive...The other day the State owned college of education was upgraded to a federal college of education.


But where are the jobs after graduation


Why not create a University where people can learn tailoring, welding, woodwork, interior decoration, paint making and painting, makeup, pedicure, event planning, glass and metal works, automobile repairs, leather works, embroidery, plastic works, metal recycling, catering services, hairdressing, etc


Some courses are now unrealistic in today's Nigeria...instead of having a degree on these courses why not just study them in a semester or two...its a no brainer.

Established or upgraded, that is not what we're need.

Higher Institutions of Learning in Nigeria should be properly funded.

We keep establishing institutions without boosting the sources for funding. The positive aspect of it is that it will create employment for many people. However, just that doesn't cut it, because the job market is already saturated.
