Comrade Nuhu Ogirima, the national president of the Academic Staff Union of the Colleges of Education, has poorly rated President Muhammadu Buhari’s performance in education.
He said this on Monday, June 1, 2020, in a conversation with journalists while evaluating Buhari’s five-year term.
Ogirima expressed his disappointment that Buhari had failed to meet expectations despite several promises.
He referred to the President’s neglect of universities of education.
Ogirima stressed that this would have a serious impact on the country’s education system.
“Almost all of the problems he encountered when he took office in education five years ago have remained unsolved.
“The assessment report for Colleges of Education has yet to be implemented,” said Ogirima.
“Other agreements and promises were not fulfilled. Educational issues have not received the attention they deserve.
“Education is the foundation for economic growth. the most important resource for human development. It should be a top priority, ”he added.
He therefore advised Buhari to explain the state of emergency of the sector in order to cope with the numerous challenges facing the sector.
“Declaring a state of emergency in education is simply the right way if we want to solve the problems that speak against the progress of our education sector in a holistic manner.
“We have to ignore protocols to effectively deal with the enormous challenges facing the Nigerian education sector. That is why an emergency declaration is very important, ”he concluded.
