The Federal government on Monday said it will declare a state of Emergency on the Education sector of Nigeria.
According to Mallam Adamu Adamu, Minister of Education, who made the disclosure while receiving the Niger state governor Abubakar Sani- Bello at the Federal Ministry of education, the declaration of state of Emergency on education may likely be in April.
“By the end of April, we are proposing there will be a declaration of state of emergency in the education sector all over the country.
“We request all the state governors to do same in their states and we hope that once this is done our educational sector will improve.
“I will also meet with the governors to appeal to them to give special emphasis to address the problem of low standard of education especially at primary level,” he said.
Adamu also called on the governors to do the same in their respective states
