Odia Ofeimun notes ( about Jubril Aminu ) : “Defenders of Nigeria’s lopsided architecture like Jubril Aminu had no patience for such arguments [free education arguments perceived to benefits the South] as he himself presented it to the consternation of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, free education and other forms of liberalized access to education would inexorably put the already educationally advanced South too far ahead of the North. In Aminu’s view, the North could only catch up if educational development in the Southern states could be reduced in some cases by up to 66 percent. The minimum programme he proposed to the receptive masters of the central government, who talked national unity but pursued Arewa opportunism, was to ensure that no new secondary schools and universities were established; that school fees would be increased to discourage over-educated states from moving too fast; and that merit principle would be de-emphasized in admission to unity schools” External link

Odia Ofeimun said : “One remarkable paradox about the 2015 General Election is that it ought to be a referendum on whether President Goodluck Jonathan has done well in Agriculture, Aviation, Road construction, Education, Health and especially Ebola, Railways, Electricity, and whether he achieved the purpose of putting constitutional reforms on the agenda of the Nigerian state as most Nigerians have been asking for since the beginning of the Fourth Republic. It is simply true, and provable, that in these areas, Jonathan has done exceedingly better than his illustrious predecessor, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, a very remarkable under-achiever, who has been needling him on all grounds and cooking the mythology that Goodluck Jonathan has no clue” External link
