The federal government says it has decided to build more universities for the country.
Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu stated this while speaking at a forum in Abuja.
He said; “This government has already decided to even add more; it is going to establish six new universities of science and technology. And, at the lower level, there will be a technical school in each state of the Federation and then vocational centres at the wards and local government levels.
“You know, we have a problem of access; if you look at it last year, one million people sat for the universities but, only 150,000 were admitted,” he said.
“So, we still need to build more universities to create more space for those who want to get in.”
He also said that each of the new universities will be located in all the six geo-political zones of the country.
