Nigerian higher education reached
landmark in its history when in April 1959,
the federal government appointed a
commission 'to conduct an investigation
into Nigeria's needs in the field of Post-
Secondary School Certificate and Higher
Education. When E. Hussey became
Director of Education in 1930, he
reviewed the entire educational system
and then made proposals for its reform.
He contemplated a gradual expansion of
education which would permit not only 'a
reasonable increase of school facilities for
the masses but also of a gradually
improving standard of higher education
at the top'. The history of higher
education for Nigerians would be
incomplete without reference to the role
of private sponsorships, scholarships and
bursaries. The Ashby Commission issued
its report in October 1960, basing its
recommendations on three premises: its
conception of Nigeria in 1980; Harbison's
estimate of Nigeria's high-level manpower
needs by 1970; and the commission's
estimate of the limited capacity in regard
to Nigeria's educational system.
