Nigerian Students In Ghana Pay N155 Billion As Tuition Annually by Afam4eva(m): 6:57pm On Nov 02, 2011
According to the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Malam Lamido Sanusi, 71,000 Nigerian students in Ghana currently pay an annual tuition of N155Billion to Ghana. Meanwhile the whole government budget for all Federal universities in Nigeria annually is a N121Billion.

The CBN Governor was drawing attention to the on-going serious capital flight from Nigeria.

Doesn't this call for a sober reflection? They only mentioned Ghana, what about the thousands of students in Malaysia (I hear there are so many of them there) in Europe, in India, in the US etc, paying trillions of Naira to get quality education. Meanwhile, you will hardly find foreign students in Nigeria. Obviously there's need to reform the education system in Nigeria. So instead of complaining about money leaving Nigeria, they should do something about improving the quality of education in this country, so parents will stop sending their kids abroad.

NIGERIAS - $10 BN IN REMITTANCES (2009)
Tuesday, November 10, 2009

Nigerians abroad send at least $10 billion in remittances to their loved ones at home. This amount makes Nigeria the 6th highest destination for remittances according to the World Bank. That also makes Nigeria the top remittance destination on the African continent.

REMITTANCES IN THE NIGERIAN CONTEXT
Nigerians are expected to take care of a lot more than just their immediate family. As a result, the average Nigerian family consists of a mother, father, children and many dependents such as in laws, cousins, and sometimes, neighbors. Once a young Nigerian gets a job, and sometimes even before that, he or she must begin to contribute to dependents. For those living abroad, their foreign currency, when changed to local Naira can be a helpful financial addition.

Will anyone really leave their country to study in Nigeria, the numbers will probably be negligible
millions of nigerian miss out on university places every year as they have no space for them

And nigeria university hardly target foreign students anyway, nothing much to offer i guess

@Kx

I don't think PDP as political party is the problem with Nigerian education standard. Just that the university governing bodies are lazy, they don't know their rights to put the necessary mechanism in place to provide quality education. I heard most of the good lecturers are leaving the country in droves to other countries, for the simple reason there are no materials to work with. I was told the Nigerian universities income generated are stolen by the chancellors and associates. I know the Nigerian govt is bad and also to be blamed but the university has not been far from exhibiting the corrupt attitude as well. If there is no standard for the education, the reason to be blamed on that should be the universities - when we know that many of the affluent individuals in the govt kids are in foreign countries schooling.

In the current circumstances, this is positive and should be applauded.

However, it's worth noting that what is remitted is a fraction of the wealth that Nigerians generate abroad. In an ideal situation where our environment is conducive, the Nigerians that went abroad would remain in Nigeria and generate a 100% of that wealth within our borders.

So the $10bn remitted by Nigerians from abroad could ideally turn into $100bn generated by Nigerians locally if the country had the same opportunities as their host countries.

About foreign students in Nigerian universities, while we may not have the numbers, I'm sure we can all guess that the number is insignificant.

Funding is not the problem.

Policy formulation is not the problem.
The FG is not the problem.

The problem with Nigeria is our mentality as a people. Our attitude. Our get-rich-quick mentality. Our propensity to oppress. In Nigeria, you can oppress people with ordinary mobile phones. Even shoes, wristwatches. Everything is upside down out there. Everything is rotten to the core.


Increase the allocation from 122B to 500B and there will be no difference; not even marginal.

Do you expect eggheads to be committed when everyone in the country is corrupt? Just because they are eggheads?

Materialism is the watchword. Religious bigotry. Name it! I mean everything expected of the anally retentive - that's Nigeria! And, that's Nigerians!


The whole system is rotten.

We should first ask him if his children are schooling here in the country. And i feel that the national assemble should enact a law which should stop all public office holder in Nigeria from sending there children out side the country, so that they will face what other citizens are facing over here.

@angello234. You left nigeria to south africa all in the name of quality education and you have remained worse off. Take a look at what you wrote. You think by the time you are back employers will be carried away by the fact that you schooled abroad? you are just wasting your time, energy and money.

The Quality of people determine the quality of their leaders. Forget about GEJ performance and dont expect magic from him because he has been part of us , we celebrate mediocrity, appreciate looters and even defend them few days after he must have left power and given few of us  fair share. Nobody can change the situation except we all decided to change. How many of our leaders today has their children in public school??

Did you say you are a student of which university

This is the main reason i don't believe in university ranking.

So, your school ranked better than OAU?

I doubt if any Nigerian student/graduate can write this nonsense.

@topic

This is the biggest lie of the century. I have been trying to figure this out to no avail. The figure is cooked as usual. However, this is an urgent call to revisit our school system.

Sooner than later the story may become true.
