FG Urged To Declare State Of Emergency In Education Sector
THE Federal Government has been called upon to as a matter of urgency declare a state of emergency on the education sector as necessary measures to address the situation and safe it from further collapse.
A retired Director of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) administration, Alhaji Sagir Hamisu stated this while addressing newsmen shortly after the 3rd year graduation ceremony of the FAMAKS International schools Kaduna.
According to Alhaji Hamisu who is the founder of the school and a 2015 governorship aspirant for Zamfara State on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the government is trying her best but more needs to be done in the education sector to meet international standard.
He also attributed the lack of quality education to being a contributory factor to the insurgencies being experienced across the country, stressing that once the problems of education is adequately addressed and students are more engaged in schools than at home occasioned by recurring strike actions, it will be better off for the country.
He said, â€œIf somebody is educated even minimally, he can be trained to acquire skills and will be gainfully employed. So when it comes to total quality education, then you are talking about excellent but less start from the basic education. Once we have that, I can assure you that there would be no insurgency.
â€œWith education, you open the mind, create employment, create good citizens, you have good governance and every citizens will know his rights and privileges. And so there is no doubt that education should not only be the priority of any government or aspirant but mandatory for any government to give to his citizensâ€ he stressed.
