Prof. Olorode did a good job in his article quoted above which appeared in The Punch newspaper of April 24, 2012. However, we must not forget that
this is a country where corruption resides in every fiber of the society
hence, adequate funding and absolute autonomy (without the nosing
around of NUC) may not be the only panacea required to safe our failing
and ailing education system.
Our so-called professors and aristocrats have also failed us too, even
if our weak successive governments have not succumbed to the external
pressure to underfund the education system, are we sure that our VCs and
their friends wouldn’t have misappropriated allocated funds?
If I may answer “no” to that question, we all can also say that our
education system would have gotten this far worse due to
misappropriation if not due to underfunding!
