“Of the 166 universities in Nigeria, about half of them don’t have faculties of education including virtually all private universities.
“The Federal Government should have established specialised universities of education. We should have at least one in each of the six geo-political zones in the country.
“Our products are testimonies of the structure of our programmes. They are knowledgeable in pedagogy. TASUED is fulfilling the mandate for which it was set up.
