Abstract

It is the responsibility of one generation to pass down ethics, information, morals and values to the upcoming generations. This can be done but not effectively without a viable educational system. Tertiary education in Nigeria is tragically becoming neglected by the vast majority of the population. The government alone cannot satisfactorily provide the necessary resources needed in order to boost the value and importance of tertiary education. A sample study was taken from selected tertiary institutions in Nigeria in order to elucidate the impacts they have had in providing tertiary education to their immediate community. The findings show that age was a major factor in the declining need of acquiring tertiary education, which influenced skill and knowledge acquisition. The results of the study suggest that for the value of tertiary education in Nigeria to increase, much effort should be put into informing the majority of the population on the importance of education as a whole.
