The Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Sokoto, Matthew Kukah, expressed concern that Nigerian universities are fostering ethnic and religious prejudices.

He highlighted this issue during an interview with Arise TV, criticizing the declining diversity and merit-based admissions, especially in Northern Nigeria.

Kukah said, “A mosque was constructed at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka. I delivered a convocation lecture in Calabar three weeks ago. After my lecture, the Chief Imam of the University came to congratulate me.

“But as I speak to you, Usman Dan Fodio, who is over 40 years old, Bayero University, and other universities in Northern Nigeria have decided to close their doors to the possibility of churches being built in the universities across this country.

“All this fanaticism we are seeing is expressed in public life. If students in the university or at the point of their growing up are not allowed to integrate and interrelate, and if churches or mosques cannot be built across this country, then there is a problem.”

The Bishop further noted that diversity and meritocracy in Nigerian universities are on the decline, with ethnic and religious factors gaining increasing prominence.
