FG Shuts Down Schools Nationwide Over Coronavirus In Nigeria

The Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, on Thursday disclosed that the educational standard in Nigeria is declining.

Adamu stated this while speaking at the commissioning of 7 various projects at the Federal College of Education, Yola.

The Minister who was represented by the Director, Tertiary Education, Hajia Rakiya Iliyasu, noted that the most graduating students of tertiary institutions in the country do not know how to read or write English which is a serious concern that needs to be addressed.

“Many graduating students in many tertiary institutions across the country find it difficult to write, read or communicate in English.”

“Government is aware of this unfortunate development in our education sector and is not resting on its oars to salvage the situation.”

“Education Administrators need to wake up from their slumber.”

The minister took the opportunity to charge graduates to brace up with the challenges of modern education.

The Minister said not only the “lecturers but stakeholders in the educational sector should also sit up to ensure that the decline in the value of education is breached within the shortest possible time”.

He added that the major problem controlling students learning is the involvement in anti-social activities, which he said has turned many students into fulltime criminals.

Meanwhile, the federal government of Nigeria on Wednesday announced that a scheduled meeting with the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has been postponed.

The two parties were earlier scheduled to meet by 3pm on Wednesday (Today) to work out details of a possible end to the eight-month-old strike which has kept lecturers and students away from the classroom.

However, a statement from the Deputy Director, Ministry of Labour and Employment, Mr. Charles Akpan hours before the scheduled meeting was to begin, noted that the meeting has been postponed.
