US Based Maduka Promises to Build 21 Universities in Anambra, Nigerians React

Dr Godwin Maduka, a United States of America-based medical doctor aspiring to be governor of Anambra State in 2021 Nigerians on social media are currently lambasting.

Maduka who is aspiring for the top job on the platform of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), said that if elected governor, he plans to build 21 universities in the state.

Speaking during a programme he organized for the youths of the state at Umuchukwu country home in Orumba South LGA, said he will establish higher institutions of learning so that Ndi Anambra could have greater access to university education.

“If given the opportunity, I will build one university each in all the 21 Local Government Areas of the state. Education is key all over the world. We shouldn’t have a few scattered universities here. It is not that hard to set it up.

“In other places of the earth, some towns have up to six universities. It should be as easy as ABC. We will start with only 21; one per local government.

Asked how was going to fund them if that were to be, Maduka said a lot of things that come to the governor’s house in terms of funding will be used to take care of the education.

“And there are some things that we can bring in. It is a matter of priorities. There should be a new negotiation about funding education. After all, that’s why I am here now.”

However, many Nigerians who took to social media to react to the politician’s claim believed that Maduka is not different from “most of our politicians lack the intellectual capacity to occupy sensitive positions”.

Some are of the opinion that his plan cannot work in a nation “where most existing universities are not properly funded and lack basic educational facilities.”

Godwin Maduka NEVER said he will build 21 universities… He said he will make sure the state owned university has an annex in all the 21 LGA of Anambra state so as to bring education closer to the masses and those in rural areas.

He should sue sun newspaper

Anambra state is one of the educationally advantaged states in Nigeria. They come tops in WAEC, Fed Colleges Exam & JAMB UTME. For a Governorship candidate to promise 21 universities if elected, it’s not only deceitful, its foolhardy. Build 21 Research Institutes, that’s better..

Someone wants to build 21 universities in a state, in a country where most existing universities are not properly funded and lack basic educational facilities.

How can someone in his right senses promise to build 21 universities in Anmabra if elected as governor next year? Is it because it’s 2021?
