The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila has disclosed that the education summit on the state of tertiary education in Nigeria will hold on November 22 and 23.

Mr Gbajabiamila, in his welcome remarks at the resumption of plenary on Monday, said the summit will “begin the long overdue national conversation.”

Mr Gbajabiamila said the organizers have asked scholars, tertiary education administrators, and stakeholders to submit papers for presentation.

“The presentations and submissions will inform the policy recommendations of the summit and be published in a journal for policy action and academic reference. So far, public interest both within and outside Nigeria has been impressive,” he said.

He added: “We must ask and answer complex questions about the operating structure of our public tertiary institutions, sustainable funding, education quality and access.”

The speaker has been a key mediator in the industrial dispute between the Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

Mr Gbajabiamila has repeatedly maintained that there is a need to explore alternative means of funding education in Nigeria.
