Following the challenges confronting existing universities in Nigeria, the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) has cautioned the Federal Government against establishing new universities.

The association’s National President, Comrade Mohammed Ibrahim, said this in Benin at the weekend during the second regular zonal executive council (NEC) meeting of the South-South Zone.

He explained that the funds being budgeted for the new universities should rather be used to strengthen the existing ones for effective service delivery.

According to him, the federal government had only honoured 10 percent of the agreement with the union.

He said: “The present universities are not fully catered for. Members of staff are not paid correctly yet, we see establishment of universities day in day out.”

In her speech, the Vice Chancellor of University of Benin, Professor Lilian Salami, urged university workers to move beyond personal gains and be committed to the sustenance of the university.
