President Muhammadu Buhari has challenged Nigerian undergraduates to produce “credible’ certificates from the tertiary institution.
The President made this known when the leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) led by Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi paid him a visit at the State House.
“The future of the country depends on quality education and our certificates must be credible to inspire confidence,’’ he said.
Buhari assured that education will, henceforth, be a top priority in development goals of the country, stressing that effective and efficient operation of universities will go a long way in improving the economy, especially with a focus on science and technology.
The President directed the Ministry of Education to put in more effort in ensuring that Nigerian universities are properly funded, with adequate infrastructure and staffing.
