Oloyede made the call on Friday while speaking at the 4th convocation lecture of the Federal University, Dutse, Jigawa State. He said, “Since education is everybody’s business, all Nigerians should support the effort towards educational development. Universities should not be established just to boost the ego of rich individuals and politicians.”
