Fashina, who is also the Chairman, Local Organising Committee of the summit, told newsmen in Ibadan that the summit would hold between October 27 and November 1.
“It is supposed to be a radical summit,’’ he said.
He said that the unions took the decision because the current education system in Nigeria was dysfunctional.
According to him, the current education system will continue to make Nigeria an appendage to Europe and America.
Fashina added that the summit would x-ray the education system with a view to restructuring it, to liberate Nigerians.
The former ASUU leader said there was a need to develop an education system that would serve the interest of Nigerians, adding that Nigeria’s education system was one-sided.
“The four main unions in Nigerian tertiary institutions are jointly organising a national education summit, the purpose of which is to look for what will be a liberating education system to Nigeria.
“We want to jointly look at the education system in the universities, polytechnics, colleges of education, primary and secondary schools, and all levels of education.
“We have contacted all interest groups, including states and federal government and private owners of schools, to see how to restructure and make education a liberating force for Nigerians,’’ he said.
Fashina said that the summit would come up with the goal of reaching some forms of agreement on how the Nigerian educational system can be reconstructed.
Fashina said that Nigerians need empowerment through an education system that could make them live a descent life where they could provide food and jobs for their families. (NAN)
