Senate wants to change Yaba College of Technology (YABATCH) to City University of Technology. More universities to share the paltry federal funding for tertiary education.

The Nigerian Senate on Thursday passed a bill to convert the Yaba College of Technology (YABATCH) to City University of Technology.

The bill seeking the conversion was sponsored by Gbenga Ashafa (Lagos-APC). It was read the first time on November 16, 2016.

In his lead debate, Mr Ashafa argued that Nigeria’s march towards providing education for all in the shortest possible time informed his introduction of the bill.

It's good to have college and university by the way. But I do not see it like something good, that's for sure. People need both of this, there is a need for skilled workers as well as for unskilled workers for sure. I do not understand how it should go other way.
