The Vice Chancellor of the Federal Agricultural University, Abeokuta (FUNAAB), Professor Kolavole Felix Salako, attributed the high tuition fees at private universities in Nigeria as a factor responsible for the unrestrained impulse for admission to many federal universities.
Salako revealed this on Tuesday in Abeokuta when he visited the Nigerian State Council of Ogun in the NUJ press center, Iwe-Iroyin's house in Oka-Ilevo, Abeokuta.
According to him, many students preferred federal or state universities, because their parents could not afford the cost of private universities.
He said that the threat was the cause of injustice in many federal institutions.
"The truth is that many students will want to come to federal or state universities because they know that their parents can not afford the cost of traveling to private universities and that this means that the largest number of applicants can be found in federal and state universities, and that's why there is a problem.
"And if we must recognize everyone, because we are indebted to society, it is implied that the university will be noisy and lack of opportunities from the point of view of teachers. Another problem is that many students do not know the course they want to study. The majority of those wishing to participate in the application process apply for courses that their parents told them to choose, "he said.
Speaking about the refusal of management courses in some specialized universities of the country, Salako said that the authorities still hope that the federal government will reinstate its decision to stop management courses in institutions, including FUNAAB.
Salako said that the ongoing process aimed at the abolition of canceled programs.
He explained that prominent Nigerians intervened in this matter, including Alec Egbaland, Both Adédotun Aremu Gbadebo.
