ABUJA—FORMER President of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, Dr. Oladipo Fashina, yesterday attributed some of the woes facing Nigerian education sector to the dubious loan regimes foisted on the sector by the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund.
Dr. Fashina stated this in Abuja at the National Education Summit, organised by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, National Association of Academic Technologists, NAAT, Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Institutions, NASU and Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, SSANU.
The former ASUU boss, who was the convener of the summit, said the country had witnessed policy somersaults arising from inadequate conception of philosophy, purpose and practice of education and class domination.
He said: “The situation is compounded by the adoption of a developmental world view imposed by the erstwhile colonial powers under the disguise of ‘foreign assistance’ and ‘technical support’.”
