Fela Durotoye, the presidential candidate for the Alliance for New Nigeria (ANN) had reportedly stated that Nigerian leaders do not value education because they lack qualitative education.
Durotoye made this known at an annual leadership and entrepreneurs’ conference organized by the students of the department of Economics, Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), on Wednesday.
This is coming from him at a time University lecturers are seeking for funding of Nigerian Universities and have shut down academic activities in various institutions.
According to Premium Times, Durotoye said Nigerian leaders do not really have the quality “of what we can call education”.
“Since most of them have no idea of what education actually means, they are always finding it very difficult to actually define the space of education in a nation’s development. If you do not have something it is possible for you not you value it” Fela Durotoye said.
He also faulted the curricular of the country’s institutions by saying “there is need to have practicing individuals in the disciplines design it.”
