The Vice-Chancellor of University of Ilorin, Prof. Abdul
Ambali, has said that he is satisfied with the level of Nigerian tertiary

world. According to the VC the only thing left to be done in the country’s
educational system, is for the primary and secondary institutions to improve.
The Vice-Chancellor made this known in an interview in Abuja on Monday.  
“I think the standard is acceptable because if you look at
our graduates anywhere you go around the world and you see them, they are
working in high places and they are proving themselves. So if the standards were lower they would not be able to
compete with their peers where they are now. So, to me it is a relative term
because the standard in not falling to me. Continue…

“We have a lot of room to improve; for example, we need to
improve the quality of our teachers especially at the primary and secondary
school levels.
“I have been saying this; it is whatever we harvest at those
levels especially the secondary school level that comes to the university and
in the university you can do minimum modelling to shape them into what the
country wants.”
Ambali, therefore, state governments to invest more on
secondary education in view of its position as the bridge between basic and
tertiary education.
He also encouraged state governments to improve the
education system;
“Students should have better classrooms; they should have
better teachers and better learning environment because it is the products of
these three issues that make up a good candidate for the next level.
“For example, if the classrooms are crowded; if there are no
teaching facilities in the classroom; no teaching aids in the classroom; no
enough materials to carry out the necessary practical, then the quality of
education will become questionable.
“If the teachers are not well paid; they are not well
mobilised; they cannot concentrate on their primary assignments,” he said.
