Great nations of the world were not made through rocket science but through quality delivery on their Educational sector coupled with adequate funding for beneficial researches.
The United State of America was once a colony of the great Britain but they have tremendously developed their Educational sector putting them in the forefront of global Development and diplomatic relations.
Education in the year 2022 in Nigeria’s public tertiary institutions was not a priority to the group of people in the central Government because the electorates that elect them have not done due diligence in checking their records on Educational Advancement.
It is evidently visible that Nigerian needs to be realistic on Educational funding. The sector needs the Government, The Private Sector, Non Governmental organizations and well to do individuals to input their all in the Development of this dilapidated System in the sector.
The duty of the Government should be sincere in policy making and implementation, they should not create unnecessary interruption in the sector. They should also factor in the inputs of the other sectors of the economy that is Paramount for the re-evaluation of the whole Education Sector these were the word of Hon Oluwafemi Akanmu Marquis at the occasion.
