The Nigeria former Vice President, Arc Namadi Sambo has shown his concern on the rate at which educational tourism is increasing in the country.
He communicated his concerns over the challenges the educational sector is facing while speaking at the Alumni Associations of Nigerian Universities (CAANU) fourth quarter delegates conference in Kaduna on Saturday.
The former Vice President said he is aware of efforts by the Conference of Alumni Associations of Nigeria Universities (CAANU) as the umbrella body of Alumni Associations in Nigerian Universities to seek a formidable relationship with Association of Commonwealth Universities, National Universities Commission, TETFUND.
It is gratifying to note the offer made by the Federal Government to members of ASUU, though not exhaustively meeting the demands of the union but certainly it is a bold step towards resolving the lingering crises in our University education,”
Namadi urged the conference to consider the establishment of an endowment fund in their respective institutions to augment funding for research and critical infrastructure in the universities.
