The former governor of Anambra state added that the federal government needed to revisit its agreement with the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and strategies on sustainable funding mechanisms.

While lamenting poor investment in Nigeria’s education sector, Obi said a comparable country like South Africa, which is the second-biggest economy in Africa, has a better investment in education than Nigeria.

He said Nigeria needs to restructure its funding of tertiary institutions. He urged the government to allow private sector participation in the funding mechanism.

His statement reads in part:

“All they need now is to go back to the agreement, clear the backlog and then design a sustainable funding mechanism. It is very easy, we learn from what is happening in other countries of the world.”
