    Senate President Bukola Saraki….said that the new amendments will indeed ….. reduce bottlenecks
    Not likely. I do not think the admin set-up of our universities are efficient enough to do this without bottlenecks, at least for years to come. But it is a necessary move. Now Gap years can become in thing too in Nigeria.

    Well, thank God. The Senate put the students and parent into consideration. Well done. This is the type of growth we prayed for Nigeria.
