So lets digest the headline “Nigerian Graduates to Study Extra One Year Before NYSC.”
Okay, did you come to terms with it? Well, the Federal Government of Nigeria is seriously considering a big policy change to our tertiary education system. If this policy becomes reality, Nigerian graduates would be required to go for an extra year of studies after finishing their programs.
According to the Minister of State for Education, Anthony Anwukah, the extension of the year of studies was being considered because many university graduates in the country were not good enough to be employed by industries. This will make them grounded enough for the labour market, he said.
He disclosed this during a two-day retreat for governing councils of the federal universities in Abuja held under the theme ‘Elements of Statutory Governance, Procurement and Financial Accounting in Nigerian Universities’ on Tuesday.
So the question is:
- Are all Nigerian graduates that bad for direct employment?
- Is it sensible to subject all the Nigerian graduates to this just because of some who may not have studied well?
- Can the 1-year extra study achieve what a 4-5 year program couldn’t?
- What better pragmatic and sustainable approach is best to tackle this perceived shortfall in our tertiary education system?
