According to report reaching oyogist.com, The federal government has revealed that the government alone cannot carry the burden of financing education in the country.
The President said this at the 2020 convocation and 72nd celebration of the university of Ibadan where he was represented by the Executive Secretary, National Universities Commission, NUC, Prof Abubakar Rasheed.
He said: “It must be noted that the government alone cannot carry the enormous burden of financing education. The private sector must be actively involved in the task of providing quality education for Nigerians.
“It is my expectation that universities will make themselves attractive to the private sector, define their roles and carve out a niche by designing programmes that will progressively assist the Government in addressing poverty reduction, improving the health sector
