Some Nigerian University Lecturers Are Unqualified To Teach
—-National President, ASUU
The National President, Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Biodun Ogunyemi, has decried the recruitment system in the universities, regretting that many people not qualified to teach had found their way into the system.
You find that some lecturers probably have no business being in the universities but you know politics has done so much damage to us that sometimes merit is sacrificed on the altar of mediocrity and political connections.
We hope that we shall restore the credibility of the system as we have been trying to argue over the years.
A key step to achieving that is for the government to create an enabling environment for us to go back to the renegotiation table.
We need to talk more so that we can come up with a new agreement package that will help us in addressing our university’s shortcomings in no time,’’ he said.
He noted that such recruitment had done a lot of damage to the university system as not all people in the class are able to teach.
