Recall that Aisha Buhari had over the weekend at a Town hall meeting in Yola announced her plan to establish a private university to be named after President Buhari.
“When I heard about the proposed private university to be named after Mr President, I just looked at it as a joke taken too far. If we have a president in a country that has simply refused to fund public education and all we get from the first family is to establish a private university in collaboration with some foreigners, it is a disaster for this country and for a sitting president.
“The implication is that Nigerians should know that this leadership does not believe in public funded education,” Omole said.
