ASUU Vows Not To Abandon Strike

The National President of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, Dr. Nasir Fagge, on Thursday vowed that ASUU would continue its on-going strike until the union’s demands were met by the Federal Government.
Fagge made the declaration while addressing journalists at the University of Lagos on the latest development on the strike.
He said, “I wish to state clearly our position so far in the whole process of the negotiations with government since the strike commenced. We are currently calling on government to meet our demands as presented in the agreements we both signed in 2009 and then we can start talking about any other form of re-negotiation.
“A lot of people are asking us to shift grounds by accepting government’s offer of N30bn and going back to class while we reach an agreement on when the next instalments will be paid.
“I do not see that as being acceptable to us for now because we had made that mistake before, whereby only the salary component of the agreement was singled out and so we cannot afford to make such a mistake again.
“I want to make it categorically clear that until this whole agreement is fully implemented, we are not going to call off this strike.”
The university lecturers have since June 30 embarked on what they described as a “total, comprehensive and indefinite strike in public universities across the country.”
Members of the union had before now, been holding deliberations with representatives of government, headed by Governor Gabriel Suswam of Benue State on ways of resolving the strike.
Fagge explained that both the government and ASUU had presented their demands in 2006 and after three years of negotiations, the parties succeeded in reaching an agreement in 2009.
According to the ASUU president, agreements are not negotiable and that is why the union is insisting on the implementation of the agreements.
He said that members of the union were determined to prosecute the strike to its logical conclusion.
Fagge said that the implementation of the agreement was a cardinal issue that must be accomplished by the union as this would give the much needed impetus for transforming the country’s ivory towers.
He noted that this would not only transform the universities but would equally make Nigeria visible on the global radar of development.
He stressed that the struggle was not just to re-position the education sector, particularly the university system, but to salvage the country.
He said that members of academia had taken it upon themselves to reposition the country, so that within the shortest possible time, Nigeria would find itself amongst the comity of nations that would be adjudged by the international community as developed.
Fagge, however, regretted that contrary to subsisting operational procedures, about 75 per cent of the fund meant for the revitalisation of the universities were not going to be released directly to the union.
He said that the Suswanm-led committee planned to hand it over to the National Universities Commission for implementation, saying that this was “unacceptable”.
“Until and unless the Suswam committee gives the union a guarantee that it will not serve as another means of recycling TETFUND money or divert funds meant for universities, ASUU representatives will not continue to participate in the deliberation of the committee,” he said.

PART 4 -   


The major gains of higher education reforms which came into being with the enactment of Degree 9 of 1993 which allows the corporate bodies, missions and private individuals to establish polytechnics, monotechnics and universities gave room for the opening up of the higher education sector for greater private sector participation and the creation of new challenges and opportunities.
In this new environment, competition, free interplay of  educational demand and supply forces, emergence of new educational techniques, increased awareness on the part of applicants, parents and guardians, regulatory control on educational institutions and increase pressure on these educational institutions to perform social responsibilities, are major developments . To respond to these developments, adequate information and effective communication must be conveyed to the general public periodically on issues that border on institutional  factual profile and special announcements covering such items as background facts, environment,enrollment figures, faculty size, admission and graduation requirements, accommodation, finances, campus life, student services, sports, degrees, majors and contacts for information. The information to be conveyed to the public will no doubt elucidate vital statistical data that are very important and useful in deciding the institutions to enroll.
With the emergence of this higher education deregulation, there have been massive changes and innovations in the higher education sector. The sector is experiencing continuous expansion and new educational products are emerging.
Tertiary institutions generally are re-defining their strategies and enriching their curricular and services. Majority of the populace who has lost confidence in the higher education system now have a re-think thereby enrolling their children in higher institutions at home.
Despite the high overhead costs confronting higher institutions operators, they are to perform the social responsibilities-functions expected of them. Hence the need for the institutions to make effective communication or adequate information to the public.
The first task of this book is to make it possible for prospective applicants to have access to necessary information about the schools in the country and therefore be able to make choice among alternatives.
The second task of this book is to be a compendium of information data bank where all prospective students, parents and educational institutions and any other bodies all over the globe can access information on Tertiary and Professional Institutions in Nigeria.
The production of this book is poised to arouse the interest of applicants in higher institutions the art of thorough evaluation of schools before making their choices. By extension, this book engenders a new orientation that is capable of taking our Tertiary Institutions to greater heights.
Certainly, this book will enable the applicant to make suitable choice of schools to enroll without stress as it relates to indicators of quality education such as academic program, financial aid, library facilities, housing, expenses, campus environment, application requirements and social life of their choice.

Adeleke Odewade Esq
October, 2009.

The Obredserv’s team in the last two years have been actively engaged in our drive to produce a directory that gives adequate and comprehensive information in Tertiary Institutions in Nigeria with a view to provide necessary information to applicants into higher institutions of learning, parents, guardians and other bodies about all the higher education institutions in Nigeria. The publication is a compilation of data and dossiers of Tertiary Institutions in Nigeria.
This maiden edition pioneered Tertiary Institutions directory in Nigeria. It is to be reviewed every two years and it is available in HARD and SOFT copies. It can also be assed on our website. This edition is mainly divided into two parts, namely:
Institutions Profiles and Special Announcements
Narrative Descriptions of Institutions
While wishing you happy reading, I believe you will find it useful as one stop shop of information on Tertiary Institutions in Nigeria.

Thanks and God bless you.

There has been agitation for the establishment of higher educational institution since the latter part of the nineteenth century, only few well to do Africans were opportune to send their children overseas for higher education and professional trainings.
Not much progress was attained until in the 1930s in Nigeria. The Yaba Higher College (established in 1932 but formally opened in 1934) and the Yaba Medical School (established in 1930), which awarded diplomas and certificates in selected subjects, however did not satisfy the aspirations of those who yearn for university and degree awarding education.
The Yaba Higher College phase of education in Nigeria further illustrated the desire of Nigerians for degrees, diplomas and certificates which were not inferior to those awarded by universities in the United Kingdom and other countries. The fact that the British officials did not envisage self-government for Nigerians and Senior Posts in the Public Service were reserved for expatriates, agitation for university education in Nigeria was not entertained nor approved of.
With the British Government’s serious consideration of the possibility of establishing universities or university colleges in the Commonwealth States and in West Africa particularly, during world war 11, the Asquith and Elliot Commission of 1943 gave report on various aspects of this problem in 1945. The majority and minority reports of the Elliot Commission agreed on the establishment of a University College in Nigeria. The Asquith Commission concentrated on the fundamental principles which were to guide the development of institutions of higher learning similar to the university college subsequently established at Ibadan.
The Asquith Commission laid emphases on the principle of a residential university college in special relationship with London University, high academic standards in admissions and staffing, and autonomy. The duo of Elliot and Asquith Commissions, which exchanged information, shared the opinion that the Inter-university Council for Higher Education in the colonies (later overseas) was to advise the new University Colleges on how best to actualize the objectives for which they were established.
The University College, Ibadan, founded in 1948, initially occupied the old site previously used by the 56th Military General Hospital about eight kilometres distance from the ‘new’ or permanent site. The new site covered over 1, 032 hectares of land generously leased by the chiefs and people of Ibadan for 999 years. With equipment transferred from Yaba Higher College, the 104 foundation students (including 49 students in teacher training and Survey Courses) began their courses at Ibadan on 18 January, 1948; the school was formally opened on 25 March, 1948.
The London University in February 1948 allowed Ibadan its special relationship scheme. An influential member of the Elliot Commission, Arthur Creech Jones, then Secretary of State for the Colonies, cut the first sod, at the permanent site of the university college on 17 November 1948, which became Foundation Day.
The University College in 1948-49 commenced activities with three faculties (Arts, Science and Medicine). Today there are colleges of medicine, faculties of Arts, Science, Agriculture and Forestry, the Social Science, Education, Vetenary Medicine, Technology and Law.
The college commenced with general and honours/special degree courses in selected disciplines, these were 21-examined from 1962 when the college gained its academic autonomy. From 1963 general degree courses gave way to honour special degree.
The quest to introduce a greater element of flexibility in the teaching and examination programmes, the faculty of science in 1969 began the operation of the course system which, with the exemption of the faculty of science began in 1969 the system which, with the exemption of the faculty of Medicine, was generally applied in the 1972-73 session. The first set of students trained under the course system graduated in June, 1972.
The University of Ibadan awarded the first postgraduate degree in 1952 under the scheme of social relationship with the University of London.
The successful establishment and take-off of University of Ibadan paved way for the establishment of more several universities, polytechnics, monotechnics and colleges of education. The University of Nigeria, Nsukka was established in 1960, University of Ife, Ile-Ife now Obafemi Awolowo University alongside with Ahmadu Bello University, Zaira, University of Lagos were established in the year 1962. In 1975, the Universities of Calabar, Ilorin, Maiduguri, Jos, Usman Danfodio and Bayero University, kano were also established. While University of Abuja was established in 1988, University of Uyo in 1991, Nnamdi Azikwe University in 1992 and the National Open University in 2002.
The enactment of Degree 9 of 1990 however provided opportunities for private organizations, missions and individuals to establish and operate universities, polytechnics and monotechnics.
Today Nigeria can boast of 17 Federal Universities, 5 Universities of Technology, 1 Military University, 3 Federal Universities of Agriculture, 31 State Universities and 34 Private Universities. In all, we have 91 universities and 53 approved polytechnics in Nigeria as at present with high hopes of many more to soon emerge.
