Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike says he does not believe that establishing more universities will solve the problems associated with higher education.
The governor stated his view while speaking at the flag-off ceremony for the establishment of the Emohua Campus of the Rivers State University in Emohua Local Government Area on Monday.
The governor said what should be of more concern should be how more funds can be committed to existing universities so that they can offer the needed holistic educational training in the production of requisite manpower for the country.
