Nigerian Varsity Administrators : The Weak Helping The Strong By Wale Akinremi

                  
How I wish these fake Labour Leaders do same to ask genuine questions in the system when University Administrators acts like they are next to God.

We pretend we don't see the rots in the system because it favours our promotions, jobs for our wives, juice contract jobs for our cronies, appointments that has got nothing to do with our professional calling, placating foreign conferences and seminars, free access to the gods of the Universities etc.

We pretend we don't know that majority of the University rulers don't follow any rules before they sack Students Union Leaders. 

We pretend that we don't know promotions of uncompromising lecturers are delayed. 

We pretend we don't know that 'difficult' non-teaching members of staff must not progress or posted to any office of relevance. 

We pretend we don't know that PDP vs APC politics is child's play compared to what obtains in our Universities. 

We pretend we don't know contractors  prefers University Contract Awards to that of State Governments.

We pretend we don't know that our Anti-Graft agencies are doing boyfriends/girlfriends with our Universities. 

We pretend we don't know that our Universities are now ethnic cocoons and religious promotion platforms.

We pretend we don't know that failure to globalise our Universities is a self-inflicted internally conceived injury. 

We pretend we don't know that some groups and some sets in the Universities sees the Universities as their own conquered territories for milking and pillaging.

We pretend we don't know that if there are genuine enquiries, our University managers can not boast of proper accountability. 

We pretend that all the problems with our Universities are externally induced. 

We pretend we don't know that our Federal Universities are fantastically corrupt. 

We pretend we don't know that a huge number of our academics and non-teaching members in our Federal and State Universities now patronise Private Universities by sending their wards there. 

We pretend that we don't know that a huge number of University workers, especially the academic members holding VCship and and DVC positions send their wards abroad for even first degree programmes. 

We can pretend in this country o.

Anyway, the pretence is beautiful. 

We cannot fool God.

God is not our problem. 

The weak are using their energy to help the strong!

By our pretence and grandstanding in defending the destroyers of our commonwealth, we are all conspirators. 

Until we take a holistic periscoping of the challenges facing our Universities to re-establish professionalism, competence, probity and accountability, the much needed autonomy and academic freedom shall remain a mirage. Our University System shall remain a comic relief until and unless we take a radical departure from the current malaise ravaging the University System in Nigeria.
