By Kennedy Dimaku, Abuja:
Founder, Ecole Superieure Universitaire (ESU) Prof, Dr. David Lornem has attributed corruption to be responsible for inadequate vacancies for students seeking admission into Nigerian universities.
Speaking to journalists in Abuja, he stated that the process of getting admission into Nigerian universities is very stressful, a situation that has denied large number of Nigerian youth population access to education.
Prof Lornem noted that it was corruption that has made Nigerian policy makers not to learn from other countries that have excelled in education sector management.
For instance, he pointed out that Ghana, a fellow African Country with Nigeria has the capacity to admit its students into its universities as well as over 300,000 Nigerians and students from other African countries.
The professor who recently bagged a US Presidential Council Award had also obtained a license to operate a private university in Benin Republic, “Ecole Superieure Universitaire, Cotonou” He extended invitation to Nigerians who would want quality and affordable education.
According to him, ESU was among the list of sixteen private universities accredited by Benin Republic Commission to run degree programme in business administration, saying that the development was a breakthrough for young individuals from both Benin and Nigeria considering that it was close by and the fee affordable, maintaining that the university has the capacity and quality to solve problems encountered by students.
