2016/2017 Academic Year: Is Nigerian Institutions Not Admitting This Year?

Cheta Ikemsinachi Onuecheta wrote:
Today is September 5th, yet no higher institution in Nigeria has a clear road map on how to admit new students. Maybe the private ones will smile bigger this year but on the other hand, who even have about N500,000 and above to enroll his or her child into a private University. I know some parents who have concluded plans to withdraw their children this October (nke i gulu ezugo, ego adiro zi)  cos they can't even feed at home like before not to mention paying above 1000 dollars as tuition fees. So you see, even the private universities will cry more.

Now the Ministry of Education headed by our Malam Minister and deputized by a professor who I believe is no different from the professor deputy president, always there like a dummy just to fill up space for the ethnic group he came from without doing anything, a disgrace to professorial cader in our society. I don't blame the rusticated student of Unilag who professed that he is doubting their PhD's and the institution that gave it to them. The malam is busy spitting fire unto the intellectual capacity of people he should be learning from. Who even makes a diploma student a SUG president in a school that is degree awarding? I can't even imagine that, but buhari did.

By this time last year and years past, New students were already admitted and are already doing their registrations in the respective administration offices in their universities. Now a year later, No University has admitted any student and are not sure of doing that soon. Why?
Majorly because the Buhari led Federal government wants to control everything from the center including the Senate of all the Universities in Nigeria.  Can you IMAGINE!!
One failed policy upon another coupled with threats of sack or prob to those who talk or oppose them.

Where are the ASUU that made me spend 5 years in university instead of the stipulated 4 years cos of their strike for "salary increment, age of retirement and condition of work"
Where are the NANS, NYCN, and a host of other student and youth bodies... Those ones? I laugh in Chibok.. They have been sleeping since Nigeria discovered oil.

Where are those Vice chancellor's that expel, suspend and sometimes fine the entire students merely for agitating about their welfare and conducive environment to study. They wield the big stick while pharisaically showing themselves as "No nonsense taking Profs and vice chancellors ". Now a bigger nonsense is at your door step and you can't talk or expel the bad policy of the Federal government? .
Don't our people say that "oti okpo na-eti okpo, ya buru uzo tie akpa aja, otichaa akpa aja, o were chobazie onye o ga etigbu." literal transposed to " a boxer that want wants to box, should first of all, box the a bag of sand. Then after that he can look for who to box"

Please my dear lovelies yet to enter the University, enroll into vocational institutes, enroll to learn a hand work, maybe automobile repairs, electronic appliance repairs, hair plaiting, hair barbing, tailoring and designing. Etc. So that whenever this madness leaves our society, you will go back to study without loosing anything but having gained more.

Think outside the box! If your parents can afford Ghana university, then let's help you gain admission there at a very cheaper rate. Don’t waste your years at home, wasted years can't be recovered.
