The federal government has approved the sum of N208 billion for the upgrade of Universities in Nigeria.
This was revealed by President Muhammadu Buhari’s Personal Assistant on New Media, Ahmad Bashir, via his Twitter handle.
“President @MBuhari approves N208 billion to upgrade Nigerian universities’ infrastructure.
“And the good news made ASUU trending again tonight, interesting,” he tweeted.
It should be recalled ASUU had earlier been negotiating with the Federal Government on the need to improve the state of Nigeria’s educational system. It is unclear at the time of finling this report if the government also consider polytechnics and colleges of education.
