    Background: The Nigerian Leader, General Yakubu Gowon told the visiting Soviet Minister of Higher and Specialised Secondary Education, Mr. Vyacheslav Elutin on Monday (May 14) that the Nigerian Federal Government was working towards the attainment of free universal education.

    The Soviet Minister was visiting General Gowon at Dodan Barracks. General Gowon said his intention was to ensure uniform and high standards of education throughout the country.

    He said efforts were being made to move the country away from the inherited colonial system of education to a broader but more scientifically based system.

    The Soviet Minister suggested that a Nigerian delegation visit the U.S.S.R. to see what Soviet education had achieved. Earlier in the Mr. Elutin told Nigeria's Federal Commissioner for Education, Chief A.Y. Eke, that the Soviet Union would consider increasing the number of scholarship awards to Nigerian students from 60 to 125 annually.
