Nigeria certainly needs more basic education schools (primary, secondary and even vocational) to curb their current sad situation of mostly overcrowded classrooms (up to 100 students in some classes) and/or some places where students still take classes under trees.
I'm not even trying to drag on that subject. I can confidently say that I passed my message clearly, without even trying to argue with anyone here. The fact still remains that those schools are as good as obsolete now, and you can't deny the fact that the Nigerian government just doesn't plan to adequately fund all those institutions.

I do certainly agree that the country needs more basic education schools, but not when there are several existing ones that are poorly funded, and just like you rightly mentioned above 'overcrowded' and ill equipped.

I remember it as joblessbegger recalls. That the schools are extinct speak to the ugly nature of Nigerian politics than to the point you’re trying to make

honestly, they should have taking it to a better city E.g Kano city if it must be in the north. Daura is an unkknown village that will kill the intrest of many people from visiting the school. this setiment of "i must do for my village" just have to stop.

Those schools were bound to fail unfortunately, politics or not.

This seems like another avenue to waste public funds.
Cut him some slack. At least it's not a brand new private mansion.

Wrong. On the contrary, siting the university in Daura will lead to the growth and development of the town. A federal university is not a joke. It will hold over 10,000 students. That's a big deal in terms of influx of resources and commercial activities for a small, sleepy town like Daura.

Easier said than done in a country like Nigeria where everyone expects politicians who hail from their region to 'bring something home' or be considered a wastrel fit for stoning.
