‘Nigeria Must Address Out-of-school Children Challenge’
The chairperson, Governing Board of the National Secondary School Education Commission (NSSEC), Ambassador Nimota Akanbi, has said Nigeria needs the political will to address the unprecedented out of school children crisis.
Akanbi therefore called for proper funding from federal, states and local governments to make the sector produce the desired results which will stimulate national development.
She stated this in a statement issued at the end of a five-day capacity training workshop for teachers in English-Language and Mathematics for North Central Geo-political zone held recently in Ilorin, kwara state which was signed by the head of press, Fatima Bappare.
The Ambassador also commended President Muhammadu Buhar and the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, for their support so far to the commission since the flag-off and inauguration of the Governing Board.
According to her, the education policy of the present administration has helped in no small way to improve the education of Nigerian students particularly at the secondary school education level.
She praised the federal government for making significant investment in the sector stressing that secondary school education lays foundation for life long living and human development.
