Malaysian University Earns 11 Research Grants From Nigerian Government by sinkhole: 9:51am On Nov 10, 2020
Malaysian university, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) has earned 11 international research grants worth RM 600, 000 (61.3 Million Naira) from the Nigerian government through the Nigerian Institute for Transport Technology (NITT).

This was revealed by the University’s Vice Chancellor, Prof. Ismail Ahmad Fauzi, on the university’s Facebook page on Monday.

In the post, the university posted in Malay, translated to English: “Congratulations UTM Centre for Innovative Planning and Development on successfully earning 11 international research grants worth RM 660, 000 FROM Nigerian Institute of Transport Technology, NITT, Zaria.”

In Malaysia’s 2021 budget proposal, education was allocated RM50.4 billion (over NGN4.6 trillion). Meanwhile Nigeria proposes NGN1.13trillion for education in her proposed 2021 budget.

This is 30% less than what they budgeted for education last year, due to COVID-19.

Meanwhile, Nigerian federal universities have been closed since February due to lack of proper funding by the Federal Government.

Things like this makes me think if ASUU's UTAS was designed even in Zimbabwe, Nigerian Govt would not have hesitated to purchase it for billions of naira and subsequently approve for usage without any 'integrity test'.

This country is lost. Pathetic! angry

Dr Bayero Salih-Farah is the DG of NITT, Zaria and many Nigerians, especially from the North goes to Malaysia to study, most importantly at UTM.
My theory: Bayero must have gotten his PhD from Malaysia together with many people working at that NITT and they are now thinking of rewarding their "alma mater" at the expense of Nigerian tax payers embarassed
