Imagine waiting a year extra before NYSC , after spending 4-7 years in school? Well, while speaking on Tuesday at a two-day retreat for governing councils of federal universities in Abuja, the Minister of State for Education, Anthony Anwukah, disclosed that Nigeria is considering a major policy change to its tertiary education that would see graduates go for an extra year of studies.
Anwukah said this was being considered because many university graduates were not good enough to be employed by industries, adding that the proposal was similar to the extra year currently being undertaken by law and medical students.
He said; “Law students attend Law School for one year before going for NYSC and medical students go for one year Horsemanship before they are allowed to practice fully, so it will be necessary for other courses to also go through this process. The Lagos Business School can also serve as a one year after-school training.”
