The Academic Staff Union of Universities has threatened to shutdown the universities nationwide if federal government fails to comply with an agreement reached with the union seven years ago.
The Benin zonal coordinator of ASUU, Professor Anthony Monye-Emina says the country’s education sector is at the verge of collapsing.
The education sector is taking 10 per cent of the 2016 budget, which to many stakeholders is still small compared to the level of decay.
About two days ago the Federal Executive Council approved over N3 Billion to build hall at the Unilveristy of Ibadan and a new library at the University of Lagos.
The 10 per cent allocated for the sector is no where near the 26 per cent recommended by the United Nations Education,Scientific and Cultural Organisation, UNESCO.
