Ngige stated this on Tuesday when he made an appearance on Channels TV’s Politics Today while responding to questions about the impending industrial action by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

“I know that because I schooled here in Nigeria. I did my primary education, secondary and university here and I did my post-graduate outside the country. But I can tell you, in other climes education is not only done by government”.

“The state of education here is not anything to cheer about, I agree. The standard has fallen, I agree. But education cannot be funded by Government alone,” the minister said.
