According to him, many private universities can no longer meet their admission quota. He expressed the fear that they may collapse eventually if urgent step is not taken.
He also urged the Federal Government to extend the Tertiary Institution Trust Fund (TetFund) to private universities, adding that all taxable Nigerians are paying taxes and should, therefore, benefit from such gesture without discrimination.
The university Pro-Chancellor/Chairman of Council Dr Bode Ayorinde, expressed the need for government’s intervention in the running of private universities towards national economic development.
According to him, about 61 private universities nationwide have NUC approved quota to jointly admit about 150,000 students per year.
He regretted that they could not admit beyond 50,000 due to inadequate infrastructure.
