A University don, Professor John Okpako Enaowho, has called for the scrapping of the National Universities Commission (NUC) and Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) in order to avoid retrogression in education
Delivering his paper entitled “Formal planning development in Nigeria education: The paradox of autonomy and dependence” of which he delved extensively on funding challenges in the universities, the former Vice Chancellor of the University of Port-Harcourt said that universities can generate fund for self-sustenance.
While condemning the centralisation powers of NUC, the don stated that by scrapping JAMB, universities can admit as many students as possible to enable them generate money to operate independently.
He cited the United States of America which has eight of the best 10 universities in the world that have free hands to operate, adding that education should be removed from the shoulders of the Federal Government as it has so much at hand.
