Why Conversion of Polytechnics to Universities Is Ill-Advised - Jimi Disu

Public Affairs analyst, Jimi Disu has explained why the trend of converting universities to polytechnics in Nigeria is a bad idea.

Federal Polytechnic, Ilaro, Ogun State and Offa Kwara State are some polytechnics that have been upgraded to universities in recent times in the country.

But Disu argues that this is a bad idea because Nigeria needs more polytechnics than universities.

“ Universities are structured for academics while polytechnics are for practical training. What we need to move this country are technical people,” he added.
