Alternative sources of funding and government subventions as indices for infrastructure development in Nigerian Universities
Mmeka I Esther
Infrastructure development in Nigerian Universities has been in the front burner as trade unions such as the Academic Staff Union of Nigerian Universities (ASUU) has not relented in her effort at persuading the government through strikes and agitations on the need for infrastructure development in public universities at both federal and state level. Consequently, the fund available to managements of universities in Nigeria is inadequate and the more reason why the universities governing council in conjunction with the management have to put on their thinking hats and come up with strategies that would proffer alternative source of funding that will accelerate the provision and maintenance of a sustainable infrastructure in the universities. Therefore, this study examined alternative sources of funding and government subventions as indices for infrastructure development in Nigerian universities and suggested that for a meaningful development with regards to infrastructure in Nigerian universities to be achieved, there is need for proactive strategic plan that would drive alternative source of funding and proper and effective utilization of subventions from government.
