A Christian Critique of University Education in Nigeria

Authors : Olusegun Olawoyin

Abstract: The standard of University education in Nigeria has drastically fallen. This is a fact, accepted by Christians and non-Christians alike. What these two groups disagree about include among other things, the causes of this fallen standard. This also leads to disagreement over the solutions. Various re-organisations have been suggested and carried out, especially since the commencement of Olusegun Obasanjo’s administration in 1999. However, the desired effect had not been realised. This study gives a critique of the Universities from an evangelical Christian perspective and suggests that the Universities, like but more than other segments of the Nigerian society, require personality transformation and historical Christian ethos in relation to education. It is the conviction of this writer that evangelical Christianity has the resource to produce the personality changes, considering the phenomenal growth of this type of Christianity and its involvement in establishing private universities in Nigeria.
