Nigeria’s public education system is fraught with problems of incessant strike actions, dilapidating – sometimes inexistent structures, outdated curriculum, and most often uncommitted teachers and sparse facilities.
Hence, it is understandable that those who can afford it, prefer to send their children, dependents, and wards to privately owned universities, where the situation is somewhat bright and much more better.
