# CRITICAL ANALYSIS ON THE PROBLEM OF HIGHER EDUCATION IN NIGERIA

I accidentally met a write up circulating media castigating ASUU over the incessant strike asking them to manage the situation of no fund in the country and forfeit their demands as nothing is going properly in Nigeria, my rejoinder will be against only that point for now !

Let me call his attention, in Nigeria it is only poor masses are asked to manage the situation under the pretext of no fund but the top elites in govt position are always earmarking huge amount of money for their frivilous and greedy sentiment, he didn’t ask senators or any member of National assembly to forfeit their allowances and sacrifice some percentage of their salary for managing the life of Nigerians.

Between these greedy & incompetent leaders and poor masses who deserve to forfeit their entitlement to manage the life of one another ? Everyday we are seeing looting everywhere and still govt is screaming of no fund, no fund for education but there is fund to loot. Govt top officials are enjoying their luxury lives with 100% amenities while that of masses are hijacked telling them to manage the situation of no fund.

We are seeing them distributing luxury cars and buying aspiration forms of millions.

Every year there is Budget of renovating every office in villa and National assembly, even thier furnitures and decorations, allowances for servicing their vehicles and weekly newspaper which are all frivolous & greedy expenditure considering the country situation, huge amount of money are earmarked for these, if these money could be diverted to Education sector it would be a great achievement.
