Earlier, the Executive Secretary, National Universities Commission, Prof. Abubakar Rasheed, said quality control must be strictly adhered to.

He said, “With about two million candidates applying for admission into universities annually, the university system is only able to accommodate about 500,000 students yearly.

“And so, there is need to licence more universities to help deal with the challenge of access to education.”

Also, Former head of state, Gen. Abdusalami Abubakar called on Nigerians to maintain peace in the country to ensure educational development.

Abubakar also urged universities to maintain and ensure quality education for the betterment of all Nigerians.

He said with a total of 160 universities in Nigeria out of which 74 are private universities, 46 states and 40 federal universities, there was the need to ensure peace to achieve educational development.

He called for the engagement of the youths educationally, adding that the universities should be adequately equipped for meaningful development.
