Adamu Abubakar Rasheed, has disclosed that the commission will give
approval for the establishment of 150 additional private universities in
the next three years.
According to him, those calling that establishment of universities
should stop are ignorant as the current 152 universities are not enough
for a population of over 150 million people.
He explained that Argentina’s population of about 44 million has 1705
universities while several other developing counties with lesser
population than Nigeria has over 300 universities.
“Presently, 243 applications are being processed for private
universities, so in the next two to three years, we will have about 150
private universities,” he said.
