You will spend 8 years in school for a four-year course – Tinubu promises Nigerian students (Video)

Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu has suffered another gaffe.

Speaking on Thursday in Osogbo during a presidential rally, Tinubu promised to double the duration of university education in the country from the current four years to eight years.

“Those of you in school, write it down. “Call me a bastard if you spend more than eight years in school. You will be in school for eight years.”

This is coming at a time the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) had last year gone on strike that lasted for eight months.

Mr Tinubu’s promise marks a breakaway from longstanding academic programmes in Nigerian universities that run typically four years with the exception of highly specialised studies such as law and medicine, which last five and six years of university study, respectively.

The comment has further fueled criticism from Nigerians on social media, who maintain that Mr Tinubu’s worsening physical health has diminished his mental awareness and should be disqualified from seeking the country’s highest office.
