If this is your work,please contact me with proof and i will give you credit..


  1. This country sef, I baff tired! No sector is working as it should. God have mercy.

  2. I don’t believe this nonsense, as for 11 I know it’s not correct NDDC HOSTEL in UNIBEN is completed and in use

  3. Nothing is working in nigeria the way it should be..
    Which way Nigeria our country!!!

  4. A learned man behaves differently from a lay man anywhere. Until our universities begins ti show signs of difference I will not see them differently from the normal Nigeria. Are they the same professors who will take bribe to bring in corrupt politicians and the come back to list the above?😲 common now , let's think

  5. Do not mind all these reasons ASUU gives every year. Once the fed. govt. add monies to their salaries,
    they go back to work. Sheme.😏😏😏😏😏

  6. In most countries, Universities are money generating; via researches and productions, farming etc.
    We used to buy livestock in the Agric. department of the university in my town some decades ago.
    Today, nothing anymore.
    Universities have turned themselves to dummies. 🀒🀒🀒

  7. Most of the above listed are pure lies. Do you expect the government to come hire ladies for them or the government to start farming activities for the universities? Our lecturers are part of the problem of Nigeria

  8. Endless list on top of $12 per barrel of crude. You guys need to wake up for alternative funding if only you guys are serious.

  9. I don't believe that's why the union are on strike because half of what was listed doesn't affect them directly. they just don't want their salaries to come through ippis so they can hide so many irregularities.
