Source: bit.ly/1fehKgj

After the 20th Nigeria Economic Summit (NES) called off, having cultivated lots of aspects of Nigerian education today, the main focus settled on the total refurbishment of Nigeria’s University system. And, university system is pointed out rightly as the fundamental source to national development, and identified as the source of generating high-level manpower for the nation’s needs.

The fundamental problem diagnosed, however, is the substandard educational standard that is prominent in university system in Nigeria. And, one of the main reasons of its being not up to the mark is the lack of technological involvement in education

Several Issues Playing Dominant

Then, there are the issues of disgruntlement among university employees regarding various unfulfilled demands like salaries, allowances, infrastructural developments etc. The ill effects of such grudging dissatisfaction among the employees have been prominent in the last strike that lasted nearly four months. This kind of situations mirrors the disturbing and thereby unproductive educational outcome in Nigerian higher education.

If you go deep into searching the root of problems Nigerian university system is today facing, you will find a whole series of issues behind it. There are poor funding, outdated curriculum, poor infrastructure, issues of university autonomy, constant student and industrial unrest, which do not let the nation’s higher education sector to rejuvenate all anew.

Education became Poor in Quality and Irrelevant in Employability

 If you calculate the growth in the number of universities, it is indeed quite satisfactory compared to 1960s when the nation had only 4 universities. But, quality of learning and level of graduates have deteriorated drastically. The scenario is such that employers are continuously pointing out the uselessness of existing curricula with respect to industrial demand. The comparative contrast with the universities in the U.S. and the U.K reveals how Nigerian university system is lagging behind, and how the relevant curricula applied by the universities of these developing countries are contributing to the socio-economic developments of the nations.

Measures for Recovery

If Nigeria really wants to replenish its lost educational level and further progress to it, substantial measures need to be taken.

  • First of all, thorough funding has to be done for the developments in institutional infrastructures like lecture halls, laboratories, student accommodation etc.
  • Selection process for the lecturers should follow international benchmark, so that higher education can maintain a good standard.
  • Curricula have to be redesigned according to actual needs of industries.

But, seeing the prevalent situations here, all these expectations seem too ideal to be realised. Political instability and lack of care in education sector have led university system of Nigeria into a phase where it sees a total negativity.

Yet, to the best of students’ interest the nation can take more help from international universities of developed nations. For financially humble country like Nigeria, international university education may appear a bit unaffordable. So, Nigerian students can take extensive benefits of online distance education offered by the prestigious universities of educationally advanced countries like the UK and the US. Pursuing online degrees offered by these reputed universities, Nigerian students can save a whole lot of resources by not having to stay on a foreign land. They simply can access to their course from the comfort of home, with simple gadgets like a laptop, tablet or smartphone with the internet connection. With these universities Nigeria can see a ray of hope to reach to a satisfactory standard in education, and thereby satisfactory standard in the nation’s all-round developments.
