Soyinka Wants Nigerian Universities Shut For 2 Years

To stem the rot in the Nigeria’s educational system, especially at the tertiary level, the Nobel Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka, has called for a shutdown of all tertiary institutions for two years to enable government and the stakeholders  address the inherent rot.

Soyinka had made a similar call in the 80s, but his suggestion was not heeded.
He repeated the call today at the start of a two-day Rivers State Education Summit in Port Harcourt.

Soyinka lamented the decline in the sector. He said the crisis in the tertiary institutions has reached its lowest ebb and therefore needs a radical approach to the problem.
