Tertiary education is not appropriate for all students, according to Ebonyi State Governor David Umahi.

This statement was made by Umahi on Wednesday, August 10, 2022, during a meeting with a team from the Nigerian Police Trust Fund that was hosted by Dr. Ben Akabueze in Abakaliki, the capital of the Ebonyi State.

Umahi, who said that Nigeria’s educational system was poorly defined, adding that secondary or vocational education was the fundamental education that every country aimed to achieve.

According to the governor, it is unrealistic for President Muhammadu Buhari’s federal government to borrow more than $1 trillion to satisfy the demands of the Academic Staff Union of Universities.

Umahi’s claim is made against the backdrop of the ongoing strike by university academics in the country.

As of Thursday, August 11, 2022, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) strike had lasted for 178 days and was still going strong.

According to the South-East Governors’ Forum chairman, Nigeria’s most difficult issues are security and education.
