The Serving Overseer of the Latter Rain Assembly, Pastor Tunde Bakare has described most Nigerian universities as “glorified secondary schools”.
He said this during a chat with Channels TV on the Easter celebration.
His words: “We have neglected the greatest asset of any nation, human capital. Our educational system has gone down the drain; we need to revive all that. Our universities are glorified secondary schools; let us solidify the ones we have. It’s okay to start a university, but let us maintain a standard.
“It is in our interest to ensure that there is a future for our children, ensure good health care delivery, and ensure transportation system that is flawless. There are so many assets in this country and I pray President Buhari would do his best in the second term to appoint the best, brightest and fittest, so we would see Nigeria turn around as we maximise the potentials of the nation.”
Warning that the increasing unemployment rate will even worsen the level of insecurity across the country, the pastor said: “Insecurity is not new; we are being invaded from outside and from within. What do you think will happen to millions of jobless youths who have no way of providing themselves? We need to create more jobs.”
