President Buhari Approves N208 Billion For Upgrading Of Nigerian Universities

President Muhammadu Buhari has approved N208billion for the upgrade of Nigerian universities.

President Muhammadu Buhari has approved N208 billion as part of the 2019 intervention through the Tertiary Education Trust Fund for infrastructural and teacher development in public tertiary institutions.

This amount approved by the government is a far cry from the N1.1 trillion the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) is asking for to fund the university system and halt the decay in infrastructure and equipment in public universities.

President Buhari, who disclosed this at the 23rd convocation of the University of Abuja on Saturday, said the intervention was part of his administration’s effort to address the deficiencies in all the segments of our educational system.
