In an eye-opening revelation, the journalist simply identified as ‘PIDOMNIGERIA’ on Twitter has ignited a nationwide conversation about the extended duration of degree programmes in Nigerian universities.

An Investigative Journalist Exposes an Alleged Government Scheme: ASUU’s Role in Prolonging University Education in Nigeria.

The journalist’s claims have raised questions about the role of the federal government and its alleged use of ASUU to potentially prolong students’ academic journeys.

The catalyst for this discourse emerged from a tweet by one Ajebo Danny, who suggested a reduction in the standard number of years required to earn a university degree in Nigeria.

If the Ministry of Education is serious, they will reduce the standard number of years to spend in a university to 3 years and 2 years for courses like education. The 4-5 years we spend in a Nigerian university are very unnecessary,” Danny’s tweet read.

Nigeria, known for digging deep into controversial topics, responded to Danny’s tweet, asserting that the government’s purported lack of job creation was connected to the deliberate elongation of students’ academic journeys.

The journalist claimed that students were subjected to a prolonged first year of university, covering material similar to secondary school curricula.

According to Nigeria, this tactic is a ploy to extend the time students spend in school, leaving them with fewer opportunities to enter the job market.

PIDOMNIGERIA also made the startling assertion that government officials intentionally incited ASUU strikes, disrupting academic calendars and further prolonging students’ time in universities.

This, the journalist alleges, is a strategy to gain more time to address the job scarcity issue.

Nigeria’s claims did not stop there.

The journalist accused the government of intentionally fragmenting the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) into batches and streams, thereby delaying the entry of numerous youths into the workforce.

This alleged tactic, according to the journalist, is a reflection of the government’s inability to provide adequate job opportunities or a conducive environment for young people to excel.

The implications of these allegations are substantial, potentially impacting the future of education and employment for Nigerian youths.

While these claims have yet to be independently verified, they have ignited a fierce debate on social media platforms, prompting citizens to demand transparency and accountability from government bodies.

As the nation grapples with these revelations, one thing remains clear: the conversation around the duration of university education and the government’s role in the process has gained significant traction, thanks to the incisive investigative reporting of PIDOMNIGERIA on Twitter.
