President Goodluck Jonathan has expressed optimism that Nigerian universities would rank among the best universities in the world in the next four years, as a result of the ongoing transformation of the education system.
He made the statement when he featured in the Presidential Debate organised by the Nigeria Elections Debate Group (NEDG) yesterday in Abuja.
“We all feel bad that no Nigerian university was ranked but we are working seriously to change the trend. We have equipped most of our universities through the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund). We are talking about infrastructure that has failed over the years but with the way we are going, in the next four years our universities will compete with other universities across the world,’’ he said.
