The ASUU National President, Prof Biodun Ogunyemi, in an interview with The PUNCH, said many state universities in the country had been politicised and turned to constituency projects.

Ogunyemi stated that the number of universities in the country at the moment was “tolerable and funding should rather be the focus.”

The ASUU president said, “We have talked about this that state governments are the worst culprits when it comes to the proliferation of universities. You see state governors who have not funded one university increasing the institution to three or four. The main cause is this politicisation of the university system. Some governments have turned the universities to a constituency project.

“Everybody knows that universities are capital intensive in terms of management and maintenance. We expect universities to conduct researches and stand competition with others. But many state universities are glorified secondary schools. Some of them start from the sites of secondary schools and remain there for 10 or 20 years. That is not the idea of a university.

“When states begin to establish universities without plans to fund them, what they are creating are crisis centres. State universities cannot fund themselves. They are not private universities and there is a limit to which they can charge students.”
