The Pro-Chancellor and Chairman, Governing
Council, Federal University of Agriculture,
Abeokuta (FUNAAB), Chief Lawrence Olakunle
Osayemi has said that every Nigerian has
contributed to the decay in the nation’s
education system.
Chief Osayemi made this known while giving his
remark at the 5th Lecture Series of the Senior
Staff Association of Nigerian Universities
(SSANU), FUNAAB Chapter, titled, ”Leadership and
the Challenges of Higher Education in Nigeria”,
delivered by Senator Babafemi Ojudu, a
foremost Journalist and Senator of the Federal
Republic of Nigeria.
He added that every Nigerian, irrespective of
status has contributed to the set-back in the
system, stressing that the elites want their
wards to get University education outside the
country and work there, rather than allowing
them to study in Nigeria, in order to contribute
their quota to the socio-economic development
of the country.
He lauded SSANU for organizing the lecture,
noting that the choice of the Guest Lecturer is
not a mistake.
The Pro-Chancellor expressed appreciation to
both Academic and Non-Teaching Staff of the
University for living up to expectation, stating
that all of them are important.
