The President Muhammadu Buhari administration has promised a revolution in the education system, through change in policies to actualise a perfect and valuable vision in the sector.
The President stated this during the 26th convocation ceremony of the Federal College of
Education, Owerri, Imo State, in an address presented by the Minister of State for Education, Prof. Tony Anwunka.
Anwunka stated that the institution had over the years been a symbol of excellence in education, defending the dreams of the founding fathers to establish itself as the primus
inter pares in the academic conscience of the government and the people.
He described the institution as remarkable and consistent in the production of quality manpower in the educational sector to revive the economy.
The minister said that the situation would be achieved through the Federal Government
TETFund intervention to all federal institutions in the country. He promised that the degree and certificate awarding institutions would key into engendering quality teaching and learning.
The minister expressed regret that while the world was producing knowledgeable inprofessionals, Nigeria was counted among the countries with the highest number of out-of-school children roaming the streets. He disclosed that due to the adverse effects of insurgency, especially in the North East, the country’s standard of education had been declining. The minister, therefore, urged all institutions in the country to expand and offer high standard education to learners.
