As just reported the Chairman of the Governing Council of the Bauchi State University, Prof. Ango Abdullahi, said only 17, out of the 18,000 secondary school students who sat for the National Examination Council examinations in Gombe State, earned qualification for university admission.
Adbullahi said this when he paid a courtesy visit to the management of the Tertiary Education Trust Fund, in Abuja, on Wednesday.
He decried the poor state of secondary education, especially in northern Nigeria.
This, he said, compelled him to write a personal
letter to the Minister of Education.
Abdullahi said, “I sat with the governor and we were really belly-aching about the state of secondary education and he confessed to me that they forwarded 18,000 students for NECO and WAEC examinations but only 17 got university (admission) qualification.”
Earlier, Bauchi State Governor Isa Yuguda said government and the private sector must collaborate to rescue the Nigeria education sector from collapse.
He said the burden of educating an ever increasing population was too much for government alone to bear.
This, he said, was because there were other competing needs which put a strain on government’s lean resources.
The governor, who led members of the governing council of the BASU to TETFUND, said their mission was to request that the university be listed among beneficiaries of funds disbursed by the intervention agency.
Yuguda said, “The Bauchi State University is a growing concern and my administration is determined to provide it the basic infrastructure for it to stand on its feet.” Source-Punch
