The decadence in the society as regards youths, and the drop in the standard of education, is one that should call for great attention.
Nigeria’s academic crisis has gotten to such a height that we cannot boast anymore of the millions of graduates we churn out yearly from our tertiary institutions.
The same can be said about the surrounding nations and Africa as a whole. Bearing that in mind, below are 6 tertiary institutions in Nigeria and neighboring nations, which Nigerians must refrain their children from attending.
1. Moshood Abiola Polytechnic (MAPOLY)
Situated in Abeokuta, Ogun state, MAPOLY has a reputation for unintelligence. There is a certain level of unseriousness that is associated with many who are currently students of this tertiary institution.
From a recent survey, it was discovered that many of her female students get to leave school, and head back to trade their bodies in neighboring Lagos state.
Cultism is on the rise at the institution, many fear that the development is getting out of hand.
The standard of teaching and mentoring in the school is on the low, and because of this drop in standard, many feel it is the reason almost anyone can get admitted at MAPOLY.
2. Houdegbe North American University Benin
Investigations, surveys about this institution gives one great cause to ensure that one’s child or ward does not attend this school.
At the inception, it was the get away school for Nigerian students who could not make it throiugh JAMB or post UTME, being a money thing, as many that could afford the pay were given admission.
Investigative reports have revealed time and over that many of these students who leave the shores of Nigeria for Houdegbe, do not get to come back the same, especially in a moral sense.
Some who responded to surveys taken, attest to the fact that there is a high level of moral decadence amongst the students.
Well out of the reach of parents and custodians, these students get to over indulge – with banned substances, alcoholism and other vices.
3. Ambrose Ali University, EKPOMA
The name stirs fear, and the reason is not far fetched. For quite an age, the Ekpoma has been synonymous with cultism. This trend has continued for too long and does not seem to be looking to change in the nearest future.
Asides cultism, the case of of students sleeping with lecturers for marks is still on the rise, thereby casting aspersion as to the quality of students and graduates churned out.
4. Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH)
The case against LAUTECH is simply the fact the strikes are incessant and the students continue to languish in their homes.
One cannot trust when those who are already admitted will get to graduate, and when eventually they eventually graduate, what certificates will they have; how will they be able to defend that which they have not learnt?
5. Lagos State University (LASU)
The Lagos State University is a “no no” if you really want your children or wards to excel. The cases of crime, cultist activities and strikes, makes it a tertiary institution to stay away from.
From the survey taken, many say LASU is the school for those who would ordinarily not have had a chance at any other institution, considering the fact that many did not have to go through normal exam processes to make it into the school.
6. Auchi Polytechnic
Sleeping with lecturers is the case against Auchi poly, the case at some point rose to an all time high that 12 lecturers were fired.
The authorities are looking into the case which has eaten deep into the fibre of the institution. It has gotten to a point where male students even get to have their girlfriends sleep with students to get marks.
N/B: These tertiary institutions may turn out to be the best in the near future, but as for now, they must be avoided.
