BACKGOUND OF THE STUDY
according to oxford advanced learners dictionary 6th edition
a thing that is difficult to deal with or to understand. Tertiary institution
according to oxford advanced learners dictionary, a large, third in order to
rank or important organization that has a particular purpose of education that
deals with service rather than material good.
At the down
years, Nigeria is still uncertain on her destination is still unknown
particular that of educational sector to the many year of military misrule.
This is the common feeling that the military neglected the tertiary
institutions because of their opposition to military rule, the nations
education institutions are still incomplete failure (shamble) today with
universities professors and lecturers still not being paid on time some people
may argue that the tertiary institution have started to move their way ball
institutions in Nigeria are in dilapidating states this shows that Nigeria has
a word values system. It is a society where priorities are turned to their
heads for instance; the salaries of the less education local government
counselors are higher than that of the university professors and lecturers. It
is a place where known rouge a 419 person, is applauded for donating large amount
of money too local communities and churches, it is place where no body cares
about how one makes his money, it is a place where the roads leading is million
dollar homes and institutions are filled with potholes, it is obvious that any
society that does not take her educational visitations seriously.
Nevertheless, the increased need for higher education during the oil boom of
the 1970s in Nigeria coupled with political pressure, led to the establishment
of many universities in the society. In two decades the number of university
students increased eightfold from about 55,000 in 1980 to more than 900, 000 to
day, excluding that of polytechnics, college of education and others
institutions. (Bolky 2002) Nigeria has about 36 public universities, 46
polytechnics and 64 college of education (Dike, 1999 p.54). in addition private
universities that have approved and registered by the federal government. Such
as Bowan university, Benson Idahosa University e.t.c Chloledeju august 2, 2002).
cannot give adequate and quality education to students at elementary and
secondary level, the tertiary institution would continue to be populated by
these who are last prepared to face the rigors of the university education and
cultism intimidation of professors into better grades and other vices will
continue to blossom on the campuses across the nation higher education could be
an important part of the solution to ills of the society, as noted earlier, how
much a nation progress has a lot to do with attainment of its citizens. That’s
why Nigerians should build and maintain good schools and treat so did state of
education as public health crisis in the society.
Nigeria educational institution is general is in a dime need, the most troubled
of the three tiers is the primary education sector. The recent statistics on
primary education available to this writer showed that there are about 2,015
primary schools in Nigeria with no building of any type, classes are hold under
a trees, the quality of lecturers conducted under such an inhuman condition
would not be anything to be proud of with this dismal statistics, the
government is still in the habit of allocating to the educational sector, the
above statistics shows how insufficient Nigeria’s allocation to the educational
sector has been one can only get what he or she ordered. Nigeria has to
challenge her value system of education and invest on education, which is the
intellectual laboratory and the engine that propels the economy. It has been
noted that without a formidable intellectual base, it is not likely that any
society would move forward.
For one to
say or highlight the problems affecting tertiary institutions in Nigeria, a
case study of college of education Ekiadolor, will be an understatement, as
this problem which cut across different sphere of our institution have not been
realized from the inception of our tertiary institution. But however let us see
the aims of tertiary institutions in Nigeria is the post secondary section of
the national education system which is given in universities, polytechnics and
college of education, the advanced teacher training colleges correspondence
colleges and such institutions as may be allied is them.
