Ban the establishment of new universities, JAMB tells FG


The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede has called on the Federal Government to ban the establishment of new universities.
Oloyede gave the advise during the 4tth convocation lecture of the Federal University, Dutse, Jigawa state last weekend.

In the board’s Weekly Bulletin released by JAMB’s Head of Information, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, prof oloyede, said efforts should be made towards developing existing ones in the country.

According to him, universities should not be established just to increase the self-importance of rich individuals and politicians in the society.
“Situation where universities are mainly established to treat  the self importance of rich individuals and politicians is not nutritional for educational development of Nigeria as tertiary education is too essential to be decreased to a commercial outfit for a self-importance purpose.

 “Education is everybody’s business, all Nigeria citizens should support the effort made towards educational development in the country. He said.
