This article synthesises the viewpoints of scholars on the Nigerian university system. The viewpoints are drawn largely from published opinions and reminiscences of scholars whose views are represented here. They converge in the depth of their perception of the state of the Nigerian university system, its rot and causality. For effect, the article is prefaced by a long fictive piece titled 'Teacher 'taken from this writers work, 'Our Colony '. The objective is to advance the elite theme by reflecting on how the political leadership and academics themselves have contributed to the malaise in the countrys educational system, especially its tertiary institutions. The article, however, concludes that it is only adequate funding that can halt the decline in the education sector.
