He said; “There is a fundamental assumption that is wrong: university education is not for employability. That one is basic.

“If you have a good university education, you should be an employer of labour.

“If you look at systems all over the world, only a certain percentage of citizens in the country should be able to go to a university. The rest should go to what they call a polytechnic, a monotechnic, a technical college etc. such that by the time they finish from those institutions of learning, as it was in Nigeria in the past, they can move into the industry as artisans and all that.” 

The ASUU UNILAG leader also said that love for university education in the country is unnecessary.

Ashiru added that is why the pressure is on university education. Check any developed country in the world.

 “Those who populate their universities are not from their citizens.”
