FG URGED TO REDUCE THE NUMBER OF UNIVERSITIES IN THE COUNTRY
The Federal Government has been urged to reduce the number of universities in the country.
The Rivers State Head of Service, Mr Rufus Godwins who made the call at a Public Lecture in Port Harcourt said the suggestion was to enhance quality and performance.
Mr. Godwins said the nation’s universities lagged behind when compared with its counterparts in other parts of the world due to poor funding, poor policy implementation and quality of teaching.
He said the nation would compete favourably with its counterparts if it reduced the number of universities to a more manageable figure while improving on funding.
He attributed the decline to poor management of the universities by the authorities.
